    So how do you consume it? Do you make a tea, chew and swallow, mix ground in your food as a seasoning…..?
    My granddaughter has lupus and it has hit her spine, brain and optic nerve causing blindness in the right eye and minimal sight in the left. She’s considered to be legally blind. She has spasms and jerks from time to time uncontrollably. Her balance and circulation cause her legs to be numb and without strength when she stands up. I was told that this herb would help.
