Many people suffer from disorders of the thyroid gland, if it does not produce enough of the hormone, and the cause is usually a chronic autoimmune inflammation of this gland. The consequences of this condition, called hypothyroidism, can affect the health of the whole body.
To people who suffer from hypothyroidism, Russian folk medicine recommends the following simple recipe. It contains only two ingredients, which are very easy to find.
Russian drops for hypothyroidism – RECIPE:
In the spring, pick 15 young pine cones (the size of 3-5 cm). Grind them as much as possible. Pour them with 50 ml of high-quality vodka and homemade brandy, and leave them in a covered jar for ten days. Then strain the liquid.
Drink 5 drops, three times daily. They should last for 3 weeks.
This is how these drops affect health:
We know the healing properties of various herbs, vegetables and fruits, however, and evergreen trees are also there. Pine has always been used in folk medicine to treat rheumatism and for the treatment of respiratory organs, as well as the treatment of cough and lung diseases, including hypothyroidism. Pine is one of the most widely spread conifers, and all parts of the tree have medicinal effects. The healing properties of pine can be used throughout the year, but the most effective way would be if its medicinal parts are collected in the spring.
There are many varieties of this evergreen tree, and from all types, the most common ones in our region are black and white pine. The black pine can be recognized by its dark green needles and a conical shaped crown. White pine has silvery needles and an orange-brown bark.
Pine needles, young shoots, young cones, resin and bark have medicinal properties. The needles are used fresh, because if you dry them, they will lose vitamin C, which is the conifer rich in. Only a few of us know that the healing properties of the needles are more than 80 percent effective in case the needle breaks into smaller pieces, rather than if we use the whole needle.
Pine cones are used while they are young, size of 3-5 cm, because in their further ripening, they start having woody shape and lose all the healing properties. Young cones contain essential oils, rich in vitamin C; contain healing aromatic resin and a large number of antioxidants. They have an alkaline effect. All this makes them a perfect ingredient of the powerful Russian tinctures for improving the condition of hypothyroidism.
