The Medicinal Herb Info site was created to help educate visitors about the often forgotten wisdom of the old ways of treating illnesses. Many of today's drugs and medicines were originally derived from natural ingredients, combinations of plants and other items found in nature.

We are not suggesting that you ignore the help of trained medical professionals, simply that you have additional options available for treating illnesses. Often the most effective treatment involves a responsible blend of both modern and traditional treatments.

We wish you peace and health!

This is a 3-5 day cleansing fast that purifies the blood. Use distilled water, fresh lemon juice, beet juice, carrot juice, and dandelion teas and extract. Quality water is important. Drink at least 8 glasses per day to help in cleansing and to carry toxins out of the body. Fresh lemon juice and distilled water are excellent purifiers.

Go on a raw vegetable diet for a few weeks, and include “green drinks”. Lots of chlorophyll is needed in fresh juice and tablet form. Wheatgrass or barley juice is good for the colon and for added chlorophyll. Alfalfa liquid is very good.

To purify the blood, avoid white flour and all sugars. Also leave heated fats and oils out of the diet for a month.
