Herbs for seniors
Inflorescences and fruits of hawthorn – seniors often complain about cardiovascular ailments, so hawthorn fruits and inflorescences are the perfect remedy just for seniors. Hawthorn is a very popular remedy in traditional and modern medicine – benefits the heart muscle and the cardiovascular system. Improves coronary circulation so that it dilates the coronary seals and strengthens blood vessels. Working antiatherogenic and protects the heart muscle, reduces blood pressure and cholesterol levels, also has antibacterial properties. Hawthorn can be used in the form of infusions and decoctions and also prepare a tincture. I would recommend self-preparation of tincture at home, because that personally prepared formulation will not contain large amounts of sugar and artificial additives that contain ready-made preparations. Indications:
- coronary heart disease,
- cardiovascular disorders,
Lemon balm – has a calming, relaxing and slightly sedative effect positively on the nervous system, improves cognitive function and relieve symptoms of dementia. In addition, it exhibits properties:
- antibacterial properties.
So the elderly, who often have a weakened immune system, can drink infusions of lemon balm in a period of increased incidence of infection during the winter and spring. The infusion of lemon balm also acts favorably on the digestive system – has properties Bile (improves digestion of fats), antispasmodic and anti-emetics. Melissa drink usually in the form of tea infusion, but I recommend either independently prepare a tincture from dried leaves.
Ground elder – is extremely effective in the treatment of:
- gout or podagra (hence the name),
Ground elder has anti-inflammatory and antiaggregatory. Rheumatic diseases and gout caused by accumulation of uric acid salts in the tissue, ground elder accelerates removal of uric acid from the body and improves abnormal metabolic mechanisms that cause this group of diseases. In addition, ground elder acts detoxicating and cleansing.
Willow bark – action anti-inflammatory, antipyretic and analgesic, so exhibits its antirheumatic and antiarthritics, as well as relieve symptoms of colds and flu. It improves circulation and is a diuretic, so that accelerates regression of edema, which often complain about the elderly, accelerate the excretion of toxic products of metabolism and cleanse. Willow bark drink in the form of decoction – a portion of herbs, cook a few minutes, drain and leave to cool.
