Weeds are often frowned upon because they take over people’s yards and gardens.
However, weeds – like any plant – have intelligence and more than likely are growing near you because your body could utilize the medicine inside them.
For instance, if you have an abundance of dandelion greens growing on your land it might be a good idea to juice or incorporate this plant medicine into your diet. Dandelion greens are powerful blood cleansers and they assist in building the blood of the body. Clean and Integral blood is foundational for overall health and longevity.
Mugwort, with its sage like smell, has antibacterial properties, can help to uplift your moods, and is a nervous system relaxer. This may just be growing in your back yard! It has been known to alleviate, diarrhea, vomiting, gas, constipation and colic. Try creating some herbal tea with it!
Wild Stinging Nettle Leaf is a wonderful wild plant that has an abundant silica content which builds the hair, skin and bone structure. Nettles can be infused into all of your body care products or try a hair rinse made up of nettle sun tea and raw apple cider vinegar.
Wild Plants must have confidence, strength, creativity and authenticity to be able to expound, flourish and thrive in their living environment. Since they are not fed daily they must grow their roots long and deep in order to extract nutrients. This task alone requires the plant to be consciously adaptable, present and creative on how it will implement its strategy. When we regularly take in these plants our bodies and consciousness will also build strength, creativity, adaptability and authenticity. We can see what a huge impact wild food has on our lives.
Organic food – because it is grown systematically – creates a certain energy signature. Organic food grown in mass quantities is regularly fed and watered on a day to day basis. It is not as mineral rich as wild food. One of the reasons is most likely because it is being fed and watered with municipal tap water. In tap water we know that fluoride and other chemicals are present. The roots of grown food are not as strong or deep like that of a wild plant. Because of this, domestically grown plants are weaker, less creative, and not as adaptable to their environment.
When you grow your own food you have the ability to find the highest quality soil and also feed that soil nourishing foods. You might try feeding the soil ionic minerals, super foods and spring water. All of these technologies will support and nourish the soil giving the plant a strong energy signature.
Another wonderful idea for growing your own food would be to collect some of your saliva and/or urine and feed this into the soil. This will allow the plants to pick up your DNA signature and it will then create the nutrients your body requires to thrive. When you eat these foods you can really sense they are true medicine!
If you choose to collect wild foods and incorporate them in your lifestyle, find a wonderful and educated mentor to learn from. This way you will be confident in your knowledge of which plants are poisonous and which are edible.
