Today is Memorial Day. Please take a moment today to thank the fallen. No matter the reason they fell, they did so in the service of our country. This sacrifice deserves thanks and appreciation.
We have had breakfast already and I already have a load of diapers going in the wash. The children are much happier now. My son, especially, hates that time it takes to cook the meal no matter the time of the day. I got one chapter read in my chemistry book yesterday and have started on the second. With luck, I'll finish the reading today and I can do some of the homeopathy reading tomorrow. One can hope. I did update the herbariums for yellow dock and buchu yesterday but I realized this morning I didn't put my tincture experience in there so I will need to update them again but the actions, constituents, and formulas are added. They get better each semester. That is the important thing.
There are only 5 more therapeutic actions for red clover left to discuss. I'll start with the easy one.
Phytoestrogenic is a plant-based estrogen. This is why it's recommended for menopausal treatments. As always, some plants are more effective than others.
Antineoplastic can also be called anti-tumor as it inhibits or stops neoplasm which creates tumors.
Deobstruent helps with blockages in natural ducts.
Detergent: I can't find this in my books and that means it could mean many things. It could mean the root word of deter or it could mean it's a detoxifier in that the normal use of the word is a cleaner which traps dirt within itself and washes it away.
Depuratives act as a detoxifier. They remove toxins, not just from the blood but from the body.
Personally, I don't think terms should be used without being defined but that's just me. I'll get those herbariums fixed when I can and get these terms updated on my herbal list page. The clock is ticking away! LOL Have a great day!
I am currently a student at American College of Healthcare Sciences earning my Masters of Science degree in Herbal Medicine. This blog is my journey of juggling mom-life with student life. My husband is a truck driver so I'm essentially a single mom all but 3 days a month. It's a challenge but we will get through this. I complete this degree on 18 December 2019 and will take one additional semester and then be done for a while. My children need more attention from their mommy but I can't wait on getting this education done. I will do what I must for now.
