Transcarpathian potions (PHOTOS)
"Within a radius of 100 kilometers, - Ms. Victoria says - on the meadow, you will find 90 percent of natural medicine." How does she know it?
The woman has two children: son Mykyta and daughter Darynka. Today, the caring mother took her little helper to the market. She says that almost from the cradle she has been teaching her daughter to love herbs, which she prefers to use to treat the family with as needed. She is cautious about medicine, saying that she does not want to spoil the immunity with questionable drugs.
So this time she came to the market for a reason and with a "popular recipe." She has cough. From lady Halyna (formely, by the way, a teacher with 20 years experience), she buys the Icelandic moss that looks like human lungs.
"The plant has long been known for its ability to clean airways off of phlegm stagnation - the woman said. - Also, I have the mint - a great soothing remedy, the St. John's wort - an antiseptic for colitis, marjoram that improves digestion ... In fact, - she says - it is best to gather herbs in late spring-early June, now is not the time. Although... it depends on what you want to find and for what purpose."
"Indeed, it is better to pick medicinal plants at new moon and also each plant needs a special approach", - Tetyana Markovich, a doctor of the Transcarpathian Regional Health Center says. Healers know spells and prayers that should be "said" to each representative of the flora. Healers also know when exactly a particular flower, leaf, stem or twig acquires "the healing power".
So... As they say, shake it into your heads and do not waste your time. Take the basket and go to the mountains for the magic potion, which will confirm the folk wisdom: "Food and drink must be like medicine, and not medicine - like everyday food..." However, before consuming any herbs be sure to consult with experts in order not to harm the body.
