Switzerland

I’ve noticed that 21,6% of my readers (according to Alexa.com) are coming from Switzerland right now.

Wow!

This is mainly due to the migrant crisis, which probably has many Swiss citizens very concerned (and rightfully so), but also due to the financial crisis heating up again.

If you, and all my other readers from all over the world, like my work and would like to support it, you can do so via PayPal.

Your support would be much appreciated (and of course your personal data will be kept anonymous).

The financial situation of the website right now is that some readers are generously donating every month and some are donating (larger sums) occasionally.

I still hope to find more supporters for the website, so that the support is more evenly distributed among readers and that the support is hopefully picking up somehow. 

You can view all the support that the website has received in the past here: Announcements

Earning less than $5 or €5 per day is not really a desirable and sustainable amount of income for my work.

So wherever you may come from, please consider to support my work.

Thank you.

Best regards,

I.U.

PS to my readers from Switzerland:

NEVER allow anybody to take away your guns!!!

Milk Thistle (Carduus marianus, Silybum marianum)-2
Milk Thistle (Carduus marianus, Silybum marianum) – This herb is improving liver function. The seeds contain silymarin, a liver-regenerating bioflavonoid used to treat cirrhosis and hepatitis. It is an antidote to the extremely toxic death cap mushroom. Silymarin is stabilizing cell membranes and regenerating liver cells. It’s antioxidant properties help to protect the liver cells from free radical damage. It has been observed that it helps to keep the blood sugar at a steady level. Silymarin reduces intestinal inflammation and worked as effectively as the cholesterol-lowering drug probucol, with the additional benefit of substantially increasing HDL (“good”) cholesterol. It also inhibits cancer cell growth. If one wants to heal and regenerate the liver, one could make use of the homeopathic remedy Carduus marianus D3 (The D3 potency is used for organ regeneration.): 3 x 5 globules daily for about 4-6 weeks. In Europe you can get the remedy at www.remedia.at: http://www.remedia-homeopathy.com/en/homeopathy/Carduus-marianus/a100262.html. Why Remedia? Simply because those guys are still producing the homeopathic remedies as it should be done and you can buy ‘larger’ bottles.

When you add up all donations in June, subtract the PayPal fees and divide the result by 30 days, then you know that the website has earned in June just a little more than $5 per day (or a little less than €5 per day)!

And without the generous support of some readers the earnings would have been much, much worse.

Personally, I think that the website deserves to earn more than just $5 per day.

What do you think?

Cistus incanus
The hairy rockrose (Cistus incanus), a native to the Mediterranean tea plant, contains a large quantity of polyphenols. Especially in Greece the cistus-tea has a long tradition, however, has passed into oblivion over the years. In 1999, Cistus Incanus has won the „European Medicinal Plant of the Year“ award and was thus rediscovered. (More info, incl. scientific studies, down below.)

ashwagandha
Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera). Ashwagandha root is a herb of the ages. It is the ‘ginseng’ of Ayurvedic medicine, the traditional medicine of India and is considered an ‘adaptogen’, a term used to describe herbs that improve physical energy and athletic ability, increase immunity to colds and infections and increase sexual capacity and fertility. For more information on ashwagandha see the articles down below.

Donation

I wish I could report an actual support ‘thermometer’ similar to Jim Quinn’s at The Burning Platform.com:

therm_,36_8200_15000

Jim Quinn of course totally deserves this much (and more) support.

For all the work and time I put into Infinite Unknown I am asking you, especially those that haven’t donated yet, to please consider to donate, because although there are some readers who generously support the website, the overall support still doesn’t look good (to say the least).

And because the website is not generating any income via annoying advertisements your donations are pretty much the only source of income. (The commissions I get via the Amazon affiliate program are not much, but thanks to all those who use the provided Amazon links.)

You can look up the latest donations here: http://www.infiniteunknown.net/category/announcements/

I support you with my work, so please support me if you can.

Thank you.

Bearberry-uva-ursi
Bearberry (Arctostaphylos Uva-Ursi)

Bearberry tea works miracles for urinary tract infections. If you drink bearberry tea and add a little sodium bicarbonate to each cup (4 cups per day), because the urine has to be alkaline for the bacteria killing substances in bearberry to do their work best, then any urinary tract infection should be history fast, especially if you combine the treatment with acupuncture and neural therapy (according to Dr. Huneke). The herb should only be taken for a few days and NOT long-term. For more information on bearberry see the article down below.

Rhodiola rosea
Rhodiola (Rhodiola rosea)

Several years ago I’ve grown many rhodiola plants from seeds. I was so happy when all these little ‘creatures’ showed up. In spring you can easily multiply them by making some cuttings. Rhodiola is another adaptogen. It strengthens the nervous system, fights depression, enhances immunity, elevates the capacity for exercise, enhances memory, aids weight reduction, increases sexual function and improves energy levels. The Eskimos and the Laplanders are also eating the leaves. I’m juicing the leaves. For more information on rhodiola see the article down below.

Brahmi-bacopa-monnieri-3
“Brahmi” (Bacopa monnieri) benefits the brain by balancing levels of neurotransmitters and stress hormones, thus improving cognitive and mental health. The many ways that bacopa benefits cognitive and mental health are impressive. Bacopa is a foundational herbal remedy in the ancient healing traditions of both China and India. It has been highly prized as a brain tonic for reducing stress and anxiety, boosting mental energy and clarity, and protecting the brain from aging. It is very easy to grow.

Gotu-Kola
Gotu kola (Centella asiatica) has been used to treat many conditions for thousands of years in India, China, and Indonesia. Centella asiatica has been used as a medicine in the Ayurvedic tradition of India (for thousands of years) and is listed in the historic ‘Sushruta Samhita’, an ancient Indian medical text. In China, known as gotu kola, it is one of the reported “miracle elixirs of life” known over 2000 years ago. Its Chinese name means “fountain of youth.” Gotu kola activates the release of  brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), a protein that acts like fertilizer for your brain encouraging new brain cell formation. It takes a few weeks for gotu kola’s effects to kick in and it seems to work by encouraging dendrite branching, increasing brain plasticity and communication between brain cells. Gotu kola also increases nerve growth factor (NGF) which stimulates the growth of new nerve cells and safeguards existing ones. It is very easy to grow and tastes quite good. For more info on gotu kola see articles down below.

Dipsacus_fullonum_002
Wild Teasel (Dipsacus sylvestris, Dipsacus fullonum) is one of many important herbs for healing Lyme (and regenerating the immune system in general) and it does help with inflammations (like arthritis). Mainly teasel root tincture is used, but one could also juice some of the (also very bitter!) leaves (just not too many or you won’t be able to drink it!) with carrots, or other veggies. I suggest you grow the herb yourself (if you can), also because the tincture is quite expensive, considering that one might have to take up to 3 tsp per day (1 tsp 3x daily). More photos of the herb are down below.

ginkgo-biloba
Ginkgo biloba has been traced back nearly 300 million years, making it the oldest surviving tree species on earth. The Chinese have used the plant medicinally for eons, but many of the modern applications come from the research of German scientists. Ginkgo is a prescription herb in Germany. Personally, I am using the fresh leaves in spring, which are containing the full life force of the Ginkgo tree and would not want to take a drug, containing all those additives. Ginkgo trees can get way over 1000 years old.

Jiaogulan
This is for those who missed my post on Jiaogulan (Gynostemma pentaphyllum) The Chinese Herb Of Immortality. Personally, I would say that this herb is a must-have. It is an adaptogen and was found to have 82 saponins (the chemical source of adaptogenesis) compared to 28 found in standard ginseng. It is said to be better than ginseng and can be easily cultivated. “Jiaogulan may actually be the most powerful adaptogen out there”. An adaptogen is a substance with an ability to restore the natural condition or the balance of the body functions, which explains why Jiaogulan is so effective and has such a wide range of applications: Anti-tumor & anti-cancer; Antioxidant (Increases superoxide dismutase (SOD) production by 282% on average!); Hypotension AND Hypertension (studies have shown that Jiaogulan is 82% effective in lowering blood pressure.);  Diabetes; Fights fluoride toxicity; Improves fitness and endurance; Improves cardio function; Improves the immune system; Promotes longevity; Protects against radiation. For how to cultivate Jiaogulan see my comment to John at the article above. If you place some of the fast growing shoots in a water bottle, they will grow roots very quickly. I have added many very interesting scientific studies down below, which are not mentioned in the article above.

chickweed
Chickweed (Stellaria Media), another arch enemy of many gardeners, is high in copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, silicon and zinc. It also contains calcium, chlorophyll, phosphorus, potassium, protein, Vitamin A and fat. And it is a good source of Vitamin C, riboflavin, niacin, thiamine and plant sodium. Many cultures enjoy the leaves and stems as a common food. It can be eaten as a salad vegetable or cooked and eaten like cabbage. Chickweed can be made use of as a detoxification agent and a blood and lymph purifying herb. Chickweed has been used historically for cancers, tumors, abscesses, cysts, hemorrhoids, bleeding of bowels or lungs, abraded nasal passages, peritonitis, appendicitis, St. Anthony’s Fire, conjunctivitis, gastrointestinal weakness, asthma, bronchitis, consumption, pleurisy and for liver issues including hepatic torpor and hepatitis. A scientific study shows Chickweed has diverse antiviral activity, including potential for anti-hepatitis B activity (Ma, et.al.) and another study concluded that Chickweed has hepatoprotective (liver protective) activity. (Gorina, et.al.). I’m juicing it (in smaller quantities) with my regular juices.

birch-trees
Birch (Betula alba). For those who missed … How To Tap A Birch Tree – Birch Sap – Birkensaft Zapfen (Videos). A birch tree of 50 cm trunk diameter in breast height can deliver up to 10 liters per day. However, the branch method is less invasive for the birch tree. Regular intake of birch sap has shown to reduce pollen allergies. The birch is a blood purifier. The Native Americans used bark tea as a herbal remedy to relieve pain as it contains methyl salicylate, a natural aspirin. Studies have shown that the bark of Betula alba negatively affects cancerous skin cells. Birch leaves (commonly used as tea) for: Spring cleanse, kidney stones, urinary gravel, cystitis, gout, arthritis, rheumatism, psoriasis, eczema, edema, … . A study was done with patients who had infected wounds ranging from shallow to very deep cuts. Each patient was treated with the tincture of Birch buds. Very good results were obtained after using the tincture on all of the patients including ones with anti-biotic resistant infections. Birch has historically been used to expel worms. A tea of the twigs and bark aids in ridding the mouth of canker sores. In research, “Betulin -based treatment was several times more effective than the current most popular herpes treatment.” Betulinic acid has been noted as a “highly selective inhibitor of human melanoma growth and was reported to induce apoptosis in these cells.” In some studies on mice that were carrying human abnormal skin growths and were treated with betulinic acid, the growths were “completely inhibited without toxicity.”
