After my last doctor’s appointment, I discovered that I was beginning to have problems with my central nervous system. This was something that came as a shock to me, but my doctor did not seem all that surprised at all. He said that it is not all that uncommon for a person of my age to begin to have problems with their central nervous system, and so he began to give me a whole bunch of suggestions regarding what I could possibly do in order to help to maintain it. One of the things that he suggested was to begin a regimen of ashitaba. I was unfamiliar with this plant, but he said that one of the major health benefits of ashitaba was that it helps to maintain a very strong nervous system. He referred me to the local health store in order to pick up some ashitaba, and he told me that I could make it into a tea and that drinking a cup or two daily would help me out with a whole bunch of issues.
I took my doctor’s advice, but I also wanted to learn more about the plant. That is why I decided to go online and do a little bit of research on my own. I found a great website that specializes in healthy living, and I found that the benefits of the ashitaba plant are far more than just helping the central nervous system. The plant can also help to prevent cancer, help the immune system, slow down the aging process, improve the health of the cardiovascular system, remove toxins from the blood, and a whole lot more. I was obviously quite happy to learn all of this information, and so it made me even more excited to try out this plant. To me, it seemed to be a wonder plant that could help out in so many ways.
I went to the local health store and I was able to find the leaves in a powder form, which is perfect for making tea. While talking with one of the guys who worked at the health store, he actually told me that there were many other ways to ingest the leaves, as well. He told me that I could also add it any salad that I eat, or even use it as an ingredient in any of my tasty soups. I, of course, would need the raw leaves in order to do this, but he explained that the plant itself can also be grown at home. When looking into this possibility, I found that it usually takes about a year or so in order for the plant to bloom, so I would need to continue buying the powder while I waited.
I did get some seeds, and I have already planted them. I will wait for them to bloom so that I can get my own leaves, but in the meantime I am really enjoying the tea that I have been making.
