Boldo, An indispensable friend

(Edited)

Hello everyone! Today I want to share with you an infusion that I love to prepare and I use it periodically, especially now to prevent a contagion of respiratory viruses such as covid-19.

It is an infusion of boldo with orange honey and ginger. This magnificent combination is very healthy and helps prevent respiratory tract diseases.

Boldo is antipyretic, helps to mitigate migraine, helps to purify the liver and reduce cholesterol levels,It is also antibiotic and anti-inflammatory so it is used to relieve pexho congestion, can alleviate biliary vecicula ailments.

Ginger can inhibit the growth of cancer. It fights fungal infections. It is a potent anti-inflammatory and relieves joint and muscle pain. It improves brain function and relieves menstrual cramps.

Orange is a great source of vitamin C and gives the infusion a delicious flavor.

Orange honey:

For this preparation, we need the juice of 1 orange and 2 tablespoons of sugar. Boil until the juice is reduced and a honey is left.

I am a retired teacher, when I was still working in 2009, I lost my voice. I had joy to chalk and this added to the effort I made so that my students could listen to the classes, made my vocal cords swell and I lost my voice.

I thought I would never be able to speak again. My phoniatrist recommended me to make mint infusions with ginger and I used to vaporize ginger and drink infusions daily. And in 2 months the edemas disappeared and with therapy I was able to recover my voice.

Since then ginger is always present in my house.

When it is ready, I harvest it and turn it into powder with the help of a mill. And I always add it to my infusions.

Once I have the ginger and orange honey ready, I will put a cup and a half of water and add a pinch of ginger, a branch of boldo and the orange honey.

Let it boil for 4 minutes and our infusion is ready.

I hope you will leave your comments and share your experiences with these plants. See you next time.

Greetings, Ms. @tere.alv. I find your post very useful, as it offers us a natural alternative to heal our vocal cords, which can suffer a lot due to Covid or any other respiratory system disease. I knew some of the utilities of Boldo, but I didn't know it was so good for the vocal cords. I thought it was an excellent and practical explanation that you offer regarding this combination of herbs. Thank you for sharing this valuable information.

It is an excellent alternative, natural medicine has since become part of my medicine cabinet. I always have medicinal plants in my garden. Thank you very much for your appreciation @sirenahippie ☺️

Hello thank you for sharing your experience and how wonderful that you were able to recover your voice.
On the other hand I also share with you that I really like tea and infusions and that's why one day I came across this BOLDO tea here in Venezuela we call it acetaminophen tea.
It was in a publication that I was giving away this plant that a family doctor explained to me that this plant is highly toxic to humans and that it had caused the death of some children. So I investigated, and yes, it is a toxic plant. So I invite you to do your research and even from nature we should study well before ingesting anything. Here are some of the reports that I have researched.
"Boldo paraguayo or Acetaminophen Plant. analitica.com. 09/06/15. This plant contains Ascaridol, an active component of high toxicity not recommended for human use.
Contraindications and toxicity risk
Boldo tea, despite its alleged benefits, contains significant amounts of ascaridol, a toxic compound, the main component of Chenopodium Oil, banned for years precisely because of the risks of serious toxicity. Boldo overdose can lead to overexcitement, cramps, exaggerated reflexes and convulsions, according to the "Practical Guide to Natural Medicine" of the American Pharmaceutical Association" reference taken and translated from https://www.sertox.com.ar/es/toxicidad-de-plectranthus-ornatus-codd-y-un-nombre-comun-que-confunde-planta-acetaminofen/#:~:text=It%20is%20important%20to%20make%20clear%20that%20consumption%20can%20produce%20death%20.
I hope my comment is taken as it was taken to me, I only write it out of my concern that nothing bad happens to anyone.
Blessings and have a wonderful holiday.

Well it is true that many of the plants that we take to cure some ailments in excess become harmful. Of course, children, pregnant women should not for any reason consume infusions and people with chronic diseases should consult their doctor before consuming them.
It is true that here in Venezuela it is known as acetaminophen, in fact I buy my plants in pots with this name in the nursery. But Boldo has helped me with many ailments, to control the symptoms of fever and as I already explained to reduce inflammation of the vocal cords with the help of ginger. I appreciate your concern, it is good to spread this information not only with the plants we consume, ornamental plants are also toxic so we must be careful that children do not play with the leaves of ornamental plants at home or in the garden.
