I have used the following herbs in tea form to help in the healing and  rebuilding of my body structure:

Horsetail, Oat Straw, Nettles, Long Pepper and Schizandrea Berry. High in the minerals silica, calcium and magnesium this herbal combination could be effective for providing easily absorbed nutrition. It definitely soothes the nervous system and helps to alkanalize the blood.


I use a couple of tablespoons each of  Horsetail, Nettles and Oat Straw. About one teaspoon of Schizandra Berry and one inch of  fresh Ginger cut up in small pieces. Long Pepper should be used judiciously. It is a spicy formula  activator. I put all ingredients in a  32 ounce Ball jar. Infuse with good quality water that has almost come to a boil. Let it steep for at least 20 minutes. Sometimes I let mine sit for a few hours. Strain before drinking.

I sometimes take my unstrained tea, put  it through the Vita Mix and then strain it. I feel it helps to break down the herbs and I think I may get more nutrients that way. Strain through a nut milk bag.

As a postscript 8/2013: Check out The Unique Healing Program Donna Pessin [link here] for a comprehensive plan to heal the body on every level. This program is not a magic bullet. It takes time and effort. The Unique Healing Program has changed my life. I gladly share my experience on these pages.

At the age of ten I distinctly remember questioning the premise that illness just happens to us. The idea that every action has a reaction became a clear reason to doubt that I could not personally impact my own health. In my very early twenties I was introduced to the Macrobiotic Philosophy of Life and assisted a Macrobiotic Counselor in NYC over a period of ten years or more. My life took many twists and turns and I evolved from a trained dancer and performer to a Shiatsu Therapist, Yoga Teacher, Colon Therapist and student of different Spiritually oriented Mind Body Therapies at the Esalen Institute and other healing centers. My associations are as follows: Member of the AOBTA for over 20 Years Member of the NCCAOM for approximately 12 years Member of the Yoga Teachers Alliance 500 hours for approximately 12 years Colon Therapist [ Wood's Institute ] Since 1998 Along with studying REIKI [ 2nd degree ] I was part of a School based on the work of Railey Macey, Dr. Robert Jaffe and Hands of Light. Railey Macey was my teacher. Thank you for your interest in my blog. notyourrawmoma "Wherever you are be the soul of that place". Rumi
