Oats (Avena sativa)


Oats are very strengthening and nutritious.
They make excellent food for convalescence, especially in cases of stomach and intestinal afflictions, such as ulcers and inflammation.
Oats also act beneficially on the gallbladder and can thus be recommended for hepatitis as well as for diarrhea or constipation.
Oat bran is an excellent digestive aid and inner cleansing agent.
It not just promotes bowel action, but also binds and eliminates endotoxins.

Even Oatstraw has healing properties.Oat straw tea strengthens the nerves and is beneficial for the urinary system and the liver.
It can be used to treat urinary weakness as well as bladder and kidney catarrh/inflammation.
It is also beneficial in cases of respiratory catarrh, cough and whooping cough.
Externally, this tea can be used as a healing bath additive for bladder, kidney, and liver complaints as well as for gout and rheumatism.
It is also recommended as a footbath for poor circulation and permanently cold feet.

Oats are extremely nutritious and contain many essential amino acids. Anyone would benefit from replacing their bowl of sugary corn flakes with a bowl of oats and fruits, but even if one doesn't make it a part of the regular diet, it should definitely rank as the number one food item during sickness and convalescence (plain porridge).
