Busy day ahead! I got a couple of bills paid and ordered some new lab supplies for school. I broke one of my funnels, for example and needed more bottles. I also need to find some books that talk about oregano. I have dozens of books and it's not really discussed. I find it really odd. I ordered Rosemary Gladstone's book. Hope it's worth the hype. Everyone worships her. My understanding is she went to the same school so I think it will at least be useful. We have had breakfast already. I need to get the kids dressed so we can get out and get the errands run. I need to buy some stuff for the ants and get some groceries. For class, I still have 2 essays and a test. I need to get some reading done to do the essays so this is going to be fun.
After reviewing what I've already discussed, there are only 6 more Actions to discuss today. Due to wanting to get my errands done, I will do 3 today and 3 tomorrow.
Laxatives are something everyone should be familiar with, it helps pass bowel movements. Mild ones are best because they are usable by more people. If you have problems in this area, you don't want a hard treatment, for example.
Astringents: These are great for swollen tonsils and hemorrhoids but they also dry up the mucous discharge. These treat the symptom, not the cause of the symptom.
Cholagogues promote the flow of bile and stimulate appetite.
That's it for today. Below is what remains for yellow dock. Have a great day!
Therapeutic Actions: demulcent, hepatic, tonic.
Constituents: anthraquinone glycosides (chrysophanol, emodin, nepodin, physcion, frangulin, and chrysophanein); tannins and oxalates.
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.
