Yerba Mansa, Red Root, Wild Cherry, and Clematis are vitally nourishing tonic herbal remedies that may support blood purification and immunity. “Remain in Faith” combines these restorative allies that may encourage an exodus away from cold and damp tissue states towards warmth and dryness related to general health. These herbs share antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory actions.
Yerba Mansa, Red Root, Wild Cherry, and Clematis are restorative allies, revealed by the nature of their white flower petals that shine the light of consciousness. When this light manifests in the material form of plants, there exists the possibility for transformational medicine of purification.
Meditators and prayer warriors, alike, are said to remain in faith when faced with adversity that requires courage and strength. Similarly, the persistent wellness seeker responds to discomfort of inflammation and microbial infection by seeking ways to cleanse the body and the mind.
Applying strategies of restoring connections with the fundamental building blocks of life, or the elements of nature, may help to pave the road towards building stronger immune systems and, with wisdom, awaken profound mental clarity towards personal growth and spiritual maturity.
Connecting with the elements: Water- drinking pure water and visiting natural bodies of water; Fire- improving digestion and balancing physical activity; Earth- grounding in nature with a nutritious diet; Air- breathing deeply of clean, fresh air; Ether- practicing prayer, or meditation.
Prayer: I wish to receive blessings made manifest though the elements of nature.
