A photogenic, unobtrusive, mild-tasting perennial mint that is loved by pollinators and herbal tea drinkers alike! In clinical studies, it was found to have a very high antioxidant activity and contained active compounds such as rosmarinic acid, rutin and quercetin. The highest amount of compounds were extracted by water, but this plant also makes a great infused vinegar! Known for a high mineral content and high antiviral activity in several studies, it is considered by the Chinese to “change the course of a chronic disease”.

The doctor actually laughed when he told me there was no cure and laid out a grim time line of what was going to happen to me as the disease progressed. He prescribed three drugs for my immediate care. [snip]
The problem I've found with these diseases is that the solution is individual-based. Not everyone reacts to everything in the same way. You've got to be willing to try some things and adjust yourself to what works and what doesn't. I've been completely symptom free of this disease since 1997. During that time, I lived in Thailand for 11 years in remote areas with compromised food and water sources without a problem and traveled around the world and throughout the U.S. I've shared my story more as a message of encouragement that healing is possible. I don't know what will work for anyone else, but I do know that our bodies are designed to heal and be healthy. Don't let anyone else tell you otherwise.
