Here is an easy way to use the herbs:
Obtain approximately 50 grams of each of the following botanicals: Oregon Grape Root, Burdock Root, Sarsaparilla, Licorice Root and Cascara Sagrada; however, use only 25 grams of each of the dried herbs for each decoction. This will enable you to prepare two batches.
An herbal decoction is similar to an herbal tea except that the herbs are boiled for a longer period of time to extract the medicinal properties from the roots. To prepare the decoction, start by placing 25 grams of the herbal blend into a pot with 500 mL (about half a quart) of purified cold water and bring to a boil. Decrease the heat and allow to simmer for 15 minutes. Pour the mixture through a sieve lined with cheesecloth into a Pyrex container. Once the herbs cooled (and using clean hands) wring out the remaining liquid and top it up with pure water until it reached 500 mL and keep refrigerated (The Herbal Medicine Maker’s Handbook).
To use, drink about 90 mL of the completed decoction, three times per day for three weeks to boost your body’s ability to eliminate environmental toxins. Of course, always consult your physician or herbalist prior to using herbs if you are taking pharmaceutical drugs or if you have a serious health condition.
