Marshmallow Root Tea

Just a little something to share.
It's really too good not to.

No, I don't mean it tastes good.
At least, not particularly.

But, oh is it G.O.O.D.!


I have a little history
with kidney stones.
Okay,
not really a little one.
It's been big.

As in, if I don't do something
about it, I could lose the kidney.
Not good.

But I digress.

I was recently told a little secret.
A wonderful secret.
And I am going to share it with you!


Marshmallow Root Tea
is the secret.

Oh. Dear. Me.

Does it ever relieve
the pain I have been experiencing.

And how.


Unfortunately,
it hasn't taken the stone away.
But, it has provided a reprieve
from the throbbing I was experiencing.
I do still have to deal with the stones.

Oh well.


What to do?

Get your hands on some
marshmallow root tea.
Spoon a teaspoon per cup of water
into a small pot.
Bring to a boil.
reduce heat and simmer ~
with lid slightly vented ~
for 20 minutes.

Strain and enjoy.
Up to three cups per day.

I just leave my pot on
the stove all day with the lid
on and the heat off.
When I want another cup,
I reheat to boiling and
strain into my mug.


Do not leave on the stove
longer than 24 hours without refrigeration.
It can go bad.

And, please, do see your Doctor
or Naturopathic Physician if
you are having any pain
or symptoms of kidney distress
of any kind!

As an added bonus,
it seems to be a wonderful tea
for our child with Crohn's as well!

Many Blessings,
Camille

I'm so sorry that you deal with kidney stones. My friend has this same problem and it is terrible! I'm going to share this tea idea with him. Good to know!

Camille said...

Dear Jackie ~ I do hope it helps him to manage the pain. I am planning to speak to my friend about a natural way to dissolve them...maybe I will have more to share after trying it. :)

Love,

I am glad to hear this helps. I just recommended it to a friend but never had to try it myself. Would love to know what you are trying to get rid of the stone.

Will pray for you tonight!

Dear Christine ~ Thank you for praying! How wonderful the LORD is to us! :) I am taking a tincture of herbs to help deal with the remainder of stone left in my kidney. I will seek to post about it when I know if it works or not. :)

Many blessings,
Camille
