This herb has a long history of helping people lose weight and is pretty cheap to buy at 20 bucks a pound (that’ll make a lot of cups of tea). In this article we’ll look at a little background information on chickweed, safety concerns and where to buy. Also you’ll learn other little weight loss secrets to help you lose weight in the most enjoyable way possible.
Before we get into that let’s look at herbs in general.
Pills Kill – Choose Herbs For Health Issues And Weight Loss.
There’s no better cure than the ones nature offer. There’s no safer alternative either.
Did you know that prescription medicines are the 5th leading cause of death in America?That’s over a 100,000 people a year.
That’s more than automobile accidents and more than all illegal drug deaths combined. I’ve seen friends with minor behavioral issues have their lives destroyed after being put on medications. Literally end up in mental institutes and it happened in the blink of an eye.
All the while pharmaceutical companies make 400 billion dollars a year. A year!
What makes it so rotten is we put a lot of trust in doctors and these companies to have OUR interests at heart. The truth is most have their own interests at heart. Profits drive them, not health. They’re very powerful and aren’t going anywhere soon. So it’s up to you to become knowledgeable about health alternatives.
There are herbs for every type of problem and their side effects are very limited. For the most part they’re cheap and can be taken in a bunch of different ways. Prescription medicines may give rapid relief but you pay the price in the long run. Herbs are milder, fix the underlying problem and give you additional health benefits; you’ll see this with chickweed too.
So don’t rush to your doctor for a weight loss prescription and certainly don’t buy some weight loss pill over the internet. Try chickweed before you do anything and reap the benefits.
Now that I got that off my chest, let’s take a look at chickweed now.
Part Used: Herb
Medicinal Properties: Alterative, demulcent, refrigerant, mucilaginous, pectoral, resolvent, discutient, diuretic.
Description and Uses: Chickweed is helpful for weight loss because it emulsifies fat cells and that results in fat being burnt. It also thoroughly cleanses the system and this is essential to slimming down.
You’ll notice one of the medicinal properties makes it a diuretic; this is because it contains the active ingredients gamma-linoleic acid, saponins, and glycosides. This is extremely useful in losing water weight and can take inches of your stomach.
World famous natural health expert James A. Duke recommends this herb highly for losing weight.
This is a really useful little herb that can be taken internally and externally. According to well known herbalist Jethro Kloss “It’s excellent in all cases of bronchitis, pleurisy, coughs, colds, hoarseness, rheumatism, inflammation or weakness of the bowels and stomach, lungs and bronchial tubes.”
Externally it is one of the best remedies for inflamed surfaces, skin disease, boils, scalds, burns, inflamed or sore eyes, tumors, caners, ulcerated throat and mouth and all kinds of wounds.
How To Make The Tea And Safety Concerns
The tea is extremely easy to make. All you will need to do is steep a heaping teaspoonful for a half hour in a cup of boiling water. You can add organic honey to improve the taste. Drink a swallow at a time and make sure it’s warm before bed.
Drink up to four cups a day a hour before each meal and one before sleep. Never use aluminum pots or utensils when preparing this or any herbs.
You can buy this herb in powder form and capsules. To learn more about herbal preparations and dosages click below:
There aren’t really any side effects with chickweed. It’s considered safe. Follow the advice above and you will be fine. In general you should give 1/3rd to 2/3rd of the recommended dosage to children, weak or debilitated people and the elderly. You should give yourself breaks after prolonged use of any herb too.
The Truth About Weight Loss
Honestly, you don’t need to kill yourself with long and exhausting workouts to get good results. You just need to know what really works.
Increasing oxygen intake is essential because oxygen burns up fat and waste matters in the system. Your lungs are the most important organ for weight loss. Oxygen burns fat into 85% carbon dioxide and you breath that out on your exhale. Because of this deep breathing and exercise is extremely important.
If you improve lung strength you will be able to keep the weight off in an easy manner. There’s a course on this website that teaches an easy and energizing routine that makes use of exercise and deep breathing. It’s called My System.
Your blood carries your oxygen so improving blood flow is important too. Part of the routine involves a self massage that improves blood flow, which aids in weight loss.
My System takes 15 minutes to complete. It is relaxing and energizing instead of straining and exhausting. You can learn more about it here.
I do this routine everyday and haven’t missed one since starting over two years ago; it’s the most important part of my day.
Don’t turn to diets either because they don’t work. They are extremely unpleasant and 95 % of people can’t keep the weight off that they lose. The goal is to make changes that last and are easy and enjoyable enough to want to do everyday.
Drinking chickweed tea, doing the exercise routine mentioned above and reducing the calories in your diet while eating nourishing and nonfattening foods will get the results you desire in a lasting way.
Hope This Helped With Everything
