Try growing Yerba Mansa in your aquarium’s Hang-on-Back Filter, Refugium or in your Water Garden Pond and GROW your own MEDICINE! The FDA hasn’t evaluated any statements about natural medicine that goes back over 2000 years from the Chinese. Why is that? Well, likely because our federal govt doesnt want Americans to use natural cures because they would lose patients, and the Big Pharma kickbacks that they get for promoting their dangerous pills! Learn about Yerba mansa and see if this is right for you. Feeling melancholy? or just having a bad day? Grab a yerba mansa leaf, chew it up and swallow it. Allow the natural medicine to calm your nerves naturally. This is the Yin part of the medicine. The Root of the plant is the Yang. So if you are having an upset stomach, you will simply eat a part of the root, just a small piece. Google it. If people in the Far East have been using for over 2000 years for natural cures, it might be good to educate yourself about it and IMPROVE YOUR LIFE!
Yerba Mansa grows in alkaline wetlands of Arizona, California & New Mexico. Its family, the Saururaceae, has only one other member Saururus cernuus or “Lizard’s Tail” which grows in the Eastern and Midwestern wetlands of the United States. So, if you want to find this plant a riparian area or a cienega would be the best place to look. Anemopsis californica produces long runners bearing new leaves and roots. A single plant can quickly spread to form a fragrant, leafy carpet.
