Herbs of the Month

As an alternative to the Master Cleanse recipe, there are several great herbs such as burdock, dandelion, and yellow dock which are great for boosting the function of your body's digestive system by helping to expel and eliminate waste in the  blood and liver.  As noted by herbalist Jessica Morgan of Morgan Botanicals, "Burdock root tea is a powerful anti-inflammatory. Its numerous antioxidants protect the liver from toxic chemicals, allowing it to process the body's naturally occurring steroids which are helpful in achieving hormonal balance...” Burdock, dandelion, and yellow dock call all be used separately or combined into a digestive tea using about 1 teaspoon of each herb and steeping in a few cups of water for about 10 to 15 minutes, straining, and flavoring to taste. You can drink the tea a couple of times over the course of the day.
