Food as Medicine - Turnips

Turnips, also known as underground apples, will rebalance a woman's glandular system. 

They contain high amounts of calcium and potassium, which reduce the negative effects associated with PMS and menopause.

Cystitis and Shepherd's Purse

For the basic attack of urethritis or cystitis, from food binges, too much booze or coffee, that strange white powder you snuffed a lot of at a party two nights ago, rabid and enjoyable sessions of sexual excesses that leave you walking bowlegged, or driving nonstop from Santa Barbara to Bangor, Maine, with only a bag of dried banana chips, two pounds of Nacho Flavored Fritos, and homemade salsa for food, in a rented subcompact with twelve traveling bags, a parakeet, and a four-year-old cranky child…your basic garden variety of bladder infection.

Drink ½ teaspoon of the tincture of Shepherd's Purse in a cup of warm water every three hours, lay off the carbos or burgers, and get over it. The more acute the onset, the better it works. Sluggish, week-long infections usually need stronger medicine.
