SHEEP SORREL - The Shaker religious community of the U.S. puts forth as one of their principles, the concept of health as being normal and illness as being abnormal. Part of their search for health includes the knowledge of how to use Sheep Sorrel to prevent scurvy. Scurvy, as we know today, is a potentially fatal dis-ease caused by a deficiency of a vitamin called Vitamin C. The effects caused by scurvy are very similar to what happens in the case of advanced age where deterioration of the body takes place and death ensues. When it was first used by the Shakers, they, as other people, had never heard of vitamins. Yet, they knew Sheep Sorrel prevented scurvy. They also used it to cure scrofula (glandular swellings), skin diseases, boils (with external applications), and, in extract form, Here is a plant which combines the unique features of combating the ravages of aging and reverses the condition of "bad cells". It is understandable that many people enjoy making Sheep Sorrel a part of their daily supplemental program. DOSE:40 drops, 3 times per day. In times of crisis, as with boils and swellings, 40 to 80 drops hourly while awake.
