Show 1- Herbs For Dental Health

Main topic:

Strawberry is an uncommon herb, even though it’s a common garden plant and favorite fruit of millions. We discussed the virtues of this humble berry and delved into how strawberries and strawberry leaves can be used in dental care for mild to serious cases.

Some herbs that pair well with Strawberry leaf for dental care discussed include:
* Oregon Grape
* Spilanthes
* Usnea
* Myrrh
* Lemon Balm
* English Lawn Daisy

This spring, Men’s Health published an article on How to Make Your Coffee Truly Healthy in which they assert that Black is the only truly nutritious way to take your coffee. We discussed the validity for this statement, offered ideas for herbs that add healthful properties to coffee, and some ideas for sound anti-oxidant alternatives to coffee. For more information on this topic, see The Practical Herbalist’s Herbal Encyclopedia page entitled Coffee: Slow Roasted Medicine.
