Herbs that effectively affect the metabolism. What herb helps to lose weight. Herbal Recipe for Weight Loss. I read it in one of the magazines "People's Healer" dated October 20, 2012. This recipe is recommended by phytotherapists for obesity, as well as for the prevention of atherosclerosis. To prepare the collection, mix 30 grams of buckthorn bark and senna leaf, 20 grams of dandelion roots, aerial part of parsley, dill, mint herbs, 2 tablespoons each. (without a slide) pour 500 ml of boiling water into the chopped mixture and leave overnight. In the morning, after filtering, drink the resulting infusion. This is a wonderful remedy for those who want to lose weight.

However, one should not get carried away too much (there should be a measure in everything). After each week of taking the collection, it is necessary to take a week break due to the fact that this collection is potent: it actively expels fluid from the body and has a laxative effect. The diuretic effect of this collection is so strong that after taking it, I advise you to stay at home for a while.


Healing garden

Let's create our own healing garden, which will give us joy and health! Medicinal plants can be grown next to traditional fruit and berry crops such as apple, pear, cherry, plum, strawberry. Correctly and skillfully selected plants in the garden can have a healing effect on the body. It is well known that many plant species secrete phytoncidal substances that are harmful to microorganisms and have a calming effect. Their medicinal properties can prevent many diseases.

Naturally occurring medicinal plants are easy to grow in your garden plots. Seeds, rhizomes, as well as whole plants are easy to find, you just need to know the growing places and the external signs of a particular plant, so as not to confuse it with closely related species. Many types of medicinal plants are very decorative and serve as a great decoration for the garden. They can be used in single and group plantings, mixborders and curbs.

If you have enough free space in your garden, then you should not forget about trees and shrubs. Some of them can be positioned on the north side so that they do not shade the space, or, conversely, they can be used to create a shady corner for relaxation. Shrubs are usually planted along the edges of the site, and at the same time, the needs of plants for sunlight, duration of flowering, color of leaves and fruits must be taken into account. The garden will be decorated with both free-standing specimens and group plantings.

Rosehip, barberry, hawthorn and others can be used for hedges. Such a decorative fence looks great, protects from dust, noise, wind and creates a comfortable microclimate for other plants. Rocky gardens, rockeries, alpine slides based on a combination of stones and plants are very popular now. In this case, preference is given to undersized, compact and creeping forms. This is a sandy immortelle, herbaceous carnation, silver cinquefoil, stonecrop, creeping thyme, dioecious cat's paw, ivy budra and many others.

Some ornamental medicinal plants can be used to decorate artificial ponds. Plants with floating leaves can be planted in containers and immersed in the bottom of the reservoir, for example: a yellow egg capsule or a white water lily.

The most diverse is the group of coastal plants that prefer to grow in slightly flooded areas or on the shore of a reservoir: calamus, three-leafed watch, broad-leaved cattail, plantain daisy, parasol, common reed. They can be planted directly into the soil of the reservoir. At the very edge of the water or on the shore on rich soils, a series of three-part, marsh marigold will grow well. Among the ornamental flowering coastal plants, water iris, yellow, or calamus is distinguished.

Many medicinal plants are good honey plants. If there is an apiary on the site or it is necessary to attract insects - pollinators to the garden, then you can not do without such plants as Valerian officinalis, blue cornflower, common heather, sweet clover, creeping tenacious, narrow-leaved willow-leaved tea, common mordovina, comfrey medicinal, blue cyanosis other.

Medicinal plants are also used in cooking. Some of them go to the preparation of vitamin salads and soups - borage medicinal, medicinal burnet, indistinct lungwort, spring primrose, sour sorrel. Others are used as seasonings for meat dishes or aromatic additives in tea: loosestrife, wild strawberries, field mint, creeping thyme, oregano. Common chicory rhizome is a substitute for coffee. Such "gardens for the kitchen", where medicinal plants used for food are collected, have long been created at monasteries.

Medicinal and aromatic herbs can be planted in containers or pots. You can arrange rosemary, marjoram, celery, mint near the kitchen, decorate the porch of the house and cut fresh herbs as needed. Such plantings will become an original accent in the design of the garden, and when it gets cold it will be easy to bring them into the house.

If you often suffer from colds, then you can plant elecampane high, marshmallow. It is helpful to have plants such as ginseng, Rhodiola rosea, and others on hand. They help with overwork, insomnia, irritability. The sedatives are valerian, blue cyanosis. Echinacea purpurea (a type of rudbeckia) is an excellent antiseptic.

In small areas, one should do without chemicals to combat diseases, pests, and often without chemical fertilizers, using only organic ones. Plants should be planted only in ecologically clean places to avoid the accumulation of harmful substances. The experience of growing medicinal plants shows that careful care, timely watering, weeding contribute to good plant growth, an increase in the number and size of flowers and inflorescences, abundant and prolonged flowering, fruiting, and increased seed germination.

Birch, spruce, oak, linden, mountain ash, maple, habitual in our latitude, have not only decorative, but also healing properties. Buds, leaves, birch sap have a beneficial effect on metabolism, remove toxins from the body. A decoction of the kidneys has anti-inflammatory effects. The juice is also used for rheumatism, gout, for wound healing, as a general tonic.

The healing properties of coniferous forests have been known for a long time. Even the air in them has a healing effect. A decoction is prepared from pine and spruce buds, which is used for coughing and as an anti-scaling agent. Its vapors make breathing easier, are disinfectants.

The majestic handsome oak, praised by many poets and artists, also has healing qualities. Its bark is used as an astringent, antiseptic and styptic.

Linden was considered a sacred tree both in Russia and in Europe, it was not for nothing that it was planted around churches and in castles. Fragrant, fragrant linden flowers have anti-cold, anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects. There are about fifteen species of linden, all of them are very beautiful, and for beekeepers this tree on the site will be simply irreplaceable.

Maple is extraordinarily beautiful both as a free-standing tree and in a group with others. It is also a wonderful honey plant that blooms in early spring. This tree is very decorative in autumn, when its leaves acquire all shades of orange-yellow and red tones. And maple sap is no less useful than birch sap.

Surely you have rowan in your garden - a poetic Russian tree. In Russia, it was considered a symbol of happiness and peace in the family. This species has phytoncidal and disinfectant properties; in ancient Rome it was used to strengthen the stomach. In Russia, rowan jam was cooked and used always as a soothing and blood-restoring agent. Fruit infusions can be used to treat the stomach. The tree itself is very decorative - slender, small, with beautiful openwork leaves and wonderful orange-red bunches, it will decorate any corner of your garden.

Bushes of wild rose, sea buckthorn, hawthorn, gooseberry, viburnum, raspberry, chokeberry (chokeberry), currants grow in many gardens. Their medicinal properties are well known. Sea buckthorn is the most valuable plant among them. The silvery color of the leaves immediately attracts attention, and at the end of summer the shrub is completely covered with orange fruits, so it will become a bright figure and give your site a special flavor. Sea buckthorn fruits contain a large amount of vitamins, and the value of sea buckthorn oil obtained from the seeds is well known.

Many medicinal plants do not even need to be planted - they are literally under our feet: dandelion, plantain, chamomile, woodlice, coltsfoot, yarrow, runny and many others. Maybe spicy herbs grow on your site: dill, lemon balm, mint, cumin, etc. They also have medicinal properties and are widely used in medicine and cooking.

Pay attention to your flower garden. Among its inhabitants there are certainly medicinal ones, for example, lily of the valley, cyanosis, mallow, echinacea, etc. Well, if something is not there, let's plant it.
