I now consider you my go to Shulze herbal informant. I'm honored - I'll do my best.
What I want to do is check to see if you have in your notes somewhere, a blend that features slippery elm, peppermint, fennel and ginger for soothing the digestive tract and reducing inflammation.Is this a test? lol If you have a recipe for this blend, would you be so kind as to share it. I know someone who would benefit from this conncoction at this time.
I've never heard of him mentioning this blend, but I can certainly imagine that he has concocted it 'somewhere along the line'. So I don't have an "official" recipe (if ever there was one), but I can offer one "from scratch" that will work:
I'd use 3-4 parts slippery elm bark powder, and one part ground peppermint, ginger root and fennel seed. Mix thoroughly. Then bring one cup of water to a boil, turn it off, and immediately add 1 teaspoon of the blend to the water, stir thoroughly (add more for a thicker gruel, but start with 1 teaspoon as slippery elm 'swells & thickens' a LOT). Cool & sweeten to taste...and be sure to mention NOT to microwave the water or the blend.
To make it even more effective/healing - make it extra thick, cool it to body temperature and blend in water kefir to the consistency of a thin milk shake (then it could be slurped through a straw if desired). Any natural source of micriobiota would be good.
This should be very effective for soothing an healing. But if the person is dealing with a major inflammation (possibly caused by a deep-seated infection), or parasites, or "other", then it's possible this wouldn't be enough to provide more than temporary relief.
