Liver Health


The liver is the largest glandular organ in the body.  One of its many functions includes the production of biochemicals necessary for digestion.  It also serves as a detoxifier and is responsible in part for the health of the entire human system.

Building and strengthening the Liver improves the quality of the bloodstream, digestion, detoxification

Herbs with a special relationship to Liver Health

Dandelion - serves as both a food and medicinal plant.  The leaf is a powerful diuretic and has a wonderful effect on the kidneys.  It is high in potassium and helps maintain and restore sodium/potassium levels in the body.  The root and leaf are excellent for digestive upsets.
              Add Dandelion to your salad everyday. 

Milk Thistle - has been used for 2000 years to treat the liver and protect the liver against toxins.  It is also reported to have protective effects and greatly improve its function


As part of a healthy liver diet - eat dark green leafy vegetables, sprouts, beets, whole grains, seeds and raw almonds.

Preparation for the Cold & Flu Season


PREPARATION FOR THE  Cold and Flu Season

NETTLES is a primary herb in cleaning all year long and is among the most nutritious wild foods.  I am using it this fall in order to help build red blood cells to stay strong throughout the cold and flu season.

Stinging Nettles is excellent for arthritis, anemia and kidney problems.  It is very rich in vitamin A, C, D, iron and potassium.

Drinking 2 cups of Nettle Tea - adding alfalfa, red clovers and lemongrass is a great way to start the morning.  The tea can also be made, refrigerated and carried throughout the day.

As fall settles in and winter is upon us, Nettle Soup is also a good use of the plant.

You have to pick and handle the nettles with gloves on and as soon as you put them in boiling water, the stingers die back.  There are also many places where you can buy nettles.

Why don't you join Renee Ponder's walks in the spring time and she'll show you where they grown in Marin.

  • 3 medium russet potatoes (about 1 3/4 pounds), peeled
  • Coarse salt
  • 9 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 6 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 medium red onions, finely chopped
  • 8 cups packed nettle leaves (use heavy gloves when handling)
  • 8 cups homemade or low-sodium store-bought chicken stock
  • Heavy cream, for drizzling
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • Place potatoes in a medium pot, and cover with cold water by about 2 inches; add 1 tablespoon salt. Bring to a boil, and cook until potatoes are tender, about 25 minutes. Drain; let cool completely. Cut into 1/4-inch dice; set aside.

  • Melt butter with the oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add onions and nettle leaves; cook, stirring often, until onions are softened but not browned, about 5 minutes. Add stock, 3/4 cup water, and 1 tablespoon salt; stir to combine. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until nettle leaves have softened, about 30 minutes. Let cool slightly.
  • Using an immersion blender or a food processor, puree soup until smooth (use caution when pureeing hot liquids in a food processor). Reheat soup over low heat. Divide among serving bowls. Garnish with the potatoes, and drizzle with cream. Season with pepper, and serve.

Fall Season

FALL IS A SEASON OF RENEWAL.  It is a time to strengthen your immune system in preparation for the winter cold and flu season.

As weather becomes colder and we stay indoors, people catch colds and viruses. Here are some tips to avoid geting sick and recovering quickly.  HEALTHY BODIES have an easier time fighting off infections.

  • Organic fruits and vegetables contain up to 40% more antioxidants than non-organic equivalents.
  • Garlic may boost your immune system, increasing resistance to infection.
  • Vitamin C, found in citrus fruits and juices, may also help the body's immune system.
  • Zinc plays an important role in the proper functioning of the immune system in the body
  • Fresh ginger root can help you when you are sick by inducing sweating and decreasing nausea and diarrhea.
EXERCISE REGULARLY -  Even moderate physical activity produces positive effects o the immune system.
DECREASE STRESS - meditate and sleep well
WASH YOUR HANDS FREQUENTLY -  keep the germs away
