After using nutrition to cure my EMF Sensitivity and Rheumatic Arthritis, I decided to give a little TLC to my kidneys and liver.
Exposure to toxic water and air had taken their toll.
I had mop up symptoms including 2 nails that, though they had been getting better, were still yellow.
As I restored my nutritional balance the nails regained their health in texture and color. However, I had hit a plateau.
To accomplish this I would use herbal teas. Specifically, dandelion root, nettles, and chicory root.
Herbs. Long before there were pharmacies people went to their gardens for the medicines they needed. Various parts of the plants, including stems, leaves, and roots, were used in the form of teas and tinctures for healing.
Thankfully, this is a tradition still carried on. Herbs are powerful medicines and are packed with vitamins and minerals.
I purchased the herbs from a local herb store.
It can be surprisingly difficult to find medicinal herbs in certain parts of the United States. Fortunately, many herb stores will ship.
Tea Time. I began drinking 2 to 4 cups of each herbal tea every day. Within three days I noticed the yellow had become lighter.
Tea Total. Not. One day I decided to have champagne with dinner.
Something told me it would help with the mop up symptoms.
The next day the yellow was significantly lighter. I decided to continue drinking champagne with dinner.
Research revealed that champagne offers numerous health benefits.
Within ten days of this protocol all the yellow was gone from my nails!
This yellow had been in my nails for years.
Curious as to why the champagne accelerated the healing, I did a bit of research. I suspect that the yellow in the nails was caused by too much nitric acid.
Champagne reduces nitric acid in the blood.
Agricultural runoff is a common and unfortunate occurrence as it compromises the safety of drinking water.
I continued drinking the teas throughout the day, along with two glasses of champagne with dinner.
I adjusted the protocol as my needs changed.
Once the yellow was gone I whittled it down to dandelion root and chicory root teas, eventually going with just chicory root tea. I discontinued the champagne.
The Health Benefits of Alcohol. Alcohol has played a key role throughout my recovery. I have followed my body’s signals carefully, abstaining when it made sense but having alcohol when it made sense. I always drank with a meal and consumed in moderation.
