Herbs, Vitamin, and Mineral Content













erbs vitamin and mineral content information was collected and developed from several resources,originally created by Dr. Thomas Stearns Lee, NMD. I included more information from Vitamin City, Herb Quarterly, notes through the years and the inspiring chart I saw over thirty years ago. A handout at a health food store created by, if I rememebr her name correctly, Carol (first name began with a C) Robinson identified the vitamins and minerals of herbs. I thought that was fascinating. She listed an institute which I never found as the place where there would be more studies.  If anyone knows what I'm referring to, please contact me.

When creating meals, use herbs for their vitamin and mineral content as well as for the flavors with which they enhance a dish.  Also use them as teas, infusions, for direct health applications. The use of certain supplements & herbs may cause allergic reactions in some people. This guide is for educational and informational purposes only. If using for medical issues, please consult your physician.

Thee BIGGEST Herbs Vitamin and Mineral Content!

You see it? Huh? Huh? See it?  IT'S ALFALFA! Alfalfa is incredible! Alfalfa is GOLD! Alfalfa is a STAR! Alfalfa contains so MANY vitamins and minerals! It could be the be-all herb, but we do want taste, don't we?

For maximum chlorophyll, sprouts are the best source. They are alive, giving your body that power and energy. Attempt experiments in growing, harvesting, and making alfalfa sprouts. While other herbs are not as power packed as alfalfa, they are worth eating.

Herbs Imprinting

I put this on the back of the Food Color Charts as another way of identifying herbs on your food even when you don't know what was used to prepare it.

An Idea to Expand Your Gustatory Experience

Remember the movie “French Kiss?” there was a scene between Kevin Kline’s and Meg Ryan’s characters where Luc Teyssier  (Kevin Kline)  presented Kate (Meg Ryan) with a wood box containing several herbs, flowers, and spices.  He asked Kate to smell lavender. Take it into herself. She did this and after so doing tasted wine that Luc gave her.  With her eyes closed, Kate took a sip, held it within her mouth while breathing, then swallowed and she was able to identify what was used to flavor the wine that was in the box she was asked to sniff. Kate was surprised that she was able to smell lavender and then taste it in the wine.  This may expand the cooking and tasting experience for you if you follow this process.

GOOD LUCK AND ENJOY!

Use this method the next time you cook.  I am sure it is used by chefs or by anyone  that involves our taste buds. Breathing is important.  Arrange a plate of herbs to be used in a recipe.  Relax the mind. Rub an herb between your hands. Deeply inhale its fragrance. What comes to mind for you? If you are kinesthetically inclined, or into feeling, or visually inclined, seeing, or auditorially inclined, into hearing, or any two or all three of these abilities, they will influence the outcome.  Does a color come into mind? Does a scene appear in your mind's eye as an image or with sound? Does a season come to mind? Or do you have a memory that already includes the sensations and smells you receive from inhaling the fragrance? Use what comes as a way to identify the herb. When you taste food, chew slowly, holding it in your mouth as you breathe in. The experience of creating the connections will aid you in determining what was used in a recipe.

With Silva Mind Control Method, learners program to identify metals in the alpha state. Whatever was created in Mind serves as the reference when that particular metal was used.  The metals were the beginning. This process was applicable to finding whatever needed to be found such as herbs. This process can apply to cooking as well.

Doesn't the dormouse in the heather appear to be smiling? I found out from the Comedy Wild Life Photography Awards web site that Mr. Andrea Zampatti is the photographer.  Please visit his website for more fascinating images that he was in the right place at the right time to capture.

Drawings!

When time permits, I intend to hold drawings to create 

  • an intuitive visionary healing tape, or
  • a soul life reading, or
  • an energy reading 

for the winners whose names are drawn for each. To enter, your name and email address will be required. It will be added to a mailing list to receive updates about In-Vesica. In-Vesica will post the art work on this web site and in other publications.  

Services explains what is involved in creating these helpful tools. The images will be displayed at In-Vesica and the In-Vesica Art Gallery.

Of course, I collect your email and, thereafter, you will receive periodic updates on In-Vesica - spiritual development; health coaching; energetic healing; art and design, when projects will be launched, and what I eat (I'm kidding!).
