I went to watch my sister-in-law get promoted yesterday. That was pretty cool and a nice break from the daily routine. We, then, went to dinner at Trejo's. I was so hungry I actually ate all of my salad. The kids ate the rice and chips, my son ate both of their beans and saved some to smear into the table. I was surprised they didn't eat the quesadillas since they eat them at home. I have to keep the tortillas and bread out of reach because she will rip the packaging open and eat. It was wonderful to help family celebrate such an important life change. I resumed working on my cayenne herbarium entry when I got home. I have a LOT of cayenne entries in my books. I put quite a few in there. I'm thinking of just writing what other books there are, what remedies, and the page number and calling that portion done. I think I only have 2 more labs to figure out. I plan to start working on them this coming week. I will need supplies for some of them. This morning, (and part of yesterday) I took my new pruning shears outside and got some work done. I want the house protected from the elements but not destroyed by trees trying to grow up so close. I cut one sapling and my daughter insisted on bringing it inside. She raised it over her head and said "rain" as if it were an umbrella protecting her from the rain. I died laughing. It was great! the last of my supplies order has gotten here as well. I still need to replace the funnel I broke but I now have bigger ones as well. The little one I'm using only holds 50ml at once which keeps me from over pouring in the small bottles but when I'm tilling a 12-ounce bottle, that 50ml is quite annoying! LOL I just sat in my lecture for the week for Nat 503 and have a new idea for my paper for that class. He said we can't focus on treatment. We must focus on the illness and how it affects the body. I still want to do antibiotic-resistant illnesses so maybe MRSA? Though Candida aura and Ebola are more in the news right now, I don't know if there is enough science out there for those illnesses for me to do a whole paper. I'll do some digging here in a bit. I still have an essay due for chemistry this week. That takes priority but both need to be done today.
There are only 2 therapeutic actions for buchu and I have already discussed one so this part of the post is easy this morning.
Analgesics are pain relievers. The most common pain treated is rheumatic pain because treating the symptom (pain) doesn't make the problem go away. These should be used on a temporary basis while the problem is being addressed to ease the sufferer. (Hoffman, 2003, 410)
That's it for today. I have a lot of research to b done today and my children are full of energy so this is going to be fun! Daddy has gone to get new glasses so he can see. 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.
