“The only time I use okra is for medicine.” —Luisah Tiesh
In the healing spirit of GirlrillaVintage, I’d like to offer up an early bird smudgetalk on plant healing. 🦉
Did you know that eating okra or drinking it’s water is a great choice for treating bowel irregularity? And as many of us know that when the bowels ain’t movin’ the crankiness gets to loomin’. And relieving the colon can eliminate many diseases and conditions such as high blood pressure, skin irritation, headaches, anxiety and depression to name a few.
I’ve been intentionally slow walking this book because it’s chock full of amazing and practical information about herbs and holistic medicine from the experiences of elders of Afrikan descent born in America.
Here’s a snippet from the book, “Working the Roots Over 400 Years of Traditional African American Healing”, that boosted my ole cranky, constipated mood lol! Also, I discovered from reading this book that Luisah Tiesh (still with us btw) authored a book called, “Jambalaya: The Natural Woman’s Book of Personal Charms and Practical Rituals”, that I recently ordered. Get into it. And enjoy all this goodness!
