Herbal Remedy #56



    ARNOLD EHRET'S HERBAL INTESTINAL BROOM
    Note: All "ground" ingredients should be about as coarse as loose tea, the "powdered" ones about as fine as powdered sugar.
    Ground senna leaves (6 parts)
    Ground buckthorn bark (3 parts)
    Ground psyllium seed husks (1 part)
    Powdered sassafras root bark (1/10 th part)
    Ground dark anis seed (1/2 part)
    Ground buchu leaves (1/10 th part)
    Ground blonde psyllium seed (1/2 part)
    Powdered Irish moss (1/8 th part)
    Granulated agar-agar (1/8 th part)
    Ground dark fennel seed (1/2 part)
    Mix the first 3 ingredients thoroughly. Then combine the remaining 7 real well, and add this to the mixture. If you have a blender, it makes an ideal mixer for preparing the formula. Use low speed.

    The "Intestinal Broom" is easy to use. Usually a small amount, about the quantity that fits on half a teaspoon, or less, swallowed with a glassful of water, is sufficient for adults. It may be increased or decreased according to your own reaction.

    It may also be used sprinkled over salads, or brewed as a tea: 1/2 tsp. to a cup of boiling water. Remove from heat and allow to steep for 10 or 15 minutes. Strain and enjoy. It has a fascinating flavor.
