1. Tulsi (Holy Basil) Ocimum Tenuiflorum
The Indian herbal plant Tulsi has a lot of significance in the Hindu religion. The term “Tulsi” is used in the context of one who is absolutely incomparable. Tulsi has a lot of reverence for the Hindus. In fact, people worship Tulsi every day in the morning as well as evening time. Most homes will have a plant and it’s considered sacred, not least because of its many medicinal qualities.
I am now using this exceptional herb in my clinic – as it has only very recently become available as a tincture – with wonderful results. I wonder why Tulsi isn’t more popular in the West as its medicinal properties are incredible, and varied. Tulsi is rejuvenating, immune boosting, helps restore our bodies negative reaction to stress, removes fluoride from water, has a wonderful effect on the adrenal glands and cardiovascular and nervous system and is anti-fungal, so is a great herb to treat a candida overgrowth.
Traditionally, many an Indian Grandma relied on a tea made from the leaves of Holy Basil to relieve indigestion and headaches. Now the firsts test are showing it might also inhibit breast cancer. A tea made of Holy Basil shrunk tumours by reducing their blood supply and stopping their spread. To aid in breast cancer treatment, drink the tea daily. (It must be ‘Holy Basil’, not other varieties of basil.) Pour 2 cups boiling water over 10 to 15 fresh holy basil leaves and steep 5 minutes Remove the leaves before consuming. Or get it as a liquid tincture.
If you grow it yourself at home, add the fresh leaves to your salads, stir fry’s, curry and smoothies. You probably won’t find Tulsi seeds or plants at your local nursery so ask them to order it for you, or look online. You’ll find it in health food stores as a supplement, tea or liquid tincture.
