Mullein Leaf Clears Mucus From The Body
Mullein Leaf Clears Mucus
I am glad we have come to understand the properties of the mullein plant and its mullein leaf. The mullein plant is native to northern Africa, Asia and Europe, and was brought to the Americas and Australia.
Mullein is known by many different names: Aaron’s rod, Adam’s flannel, Indian tobacco, Jacob’s staff, Jupiter’s staff, Peter’s staff, Blanket Leaf, Bullock’s Lungwort, Cow’s Lungwort, Feltwort, Hare’s Beard, Lady’s Foxglove, Mullein Leaf, and many more names.
Many of the names are derived from the velvety texture of its big mullein leaf. The lungwort identification is associated with mullein leaf’s traditional use as a treatment for relieving cough and congestion.
Mullein Leaf Benefits
Mullein leaf has long been used as an expectorant for treating respiratory congestion because it promotes the ejection of mucus, from the lungs.
I follow Dr. Sebi’s theory of healing which revolves around alkalizing the body and removing excess mucus from the body to support health and vitality. I adopted a plant based diet and followed this nutritional guide to alkalize my body and remove mucus from it.
I haven’t been sick in two years since I started following his methodology, not a headache, the flu, not even a cold. Though mullein leaf has been used to remove mucus from the body, specifically mucus from the lungs, I used mullein leaf to help remove mucus from my small intestine.
The alternative medicine theory is the increasing intake of toxin laden acidic foods and dairy compromises the small intestine and lines it with a harmful mucus layer. The small intestine’s job is to absorb nutrients from food traveling from the stomach into the small intestine, and then passes the nutrients into the bloodstream through its wall.
The consumption of toxic foods and dairy promotes an acidic environment in the body and causes a harmful mucoid lining to develop in the intestine, which makes it difficult for nutrients to pass through its wall and feed the body.
Though my high fiber content of my plant based diet did scrape the intestine and remove food waste, this alone was not efficient in removing the mucoid layer. I had to approach its removal differently and needed to attack it on two fronts.
I used mullein leaf to soften and remove the mucoid layer, but I needed to use it combination with the protein digesting enzymes bromelain & papain to first dissolve proteins stuck in the mucoid layer.
Small Intestine: Mullein Leaf And Mucus
Then I used mullein leaf the to clear the bad mucus from my small intestine so that it could more efficiently remove nutrients from food moving through it, and pass the nutrients into my blood stream.
After I used mullein leaf to remove the mucoid layer I became less hungry and I ate less which was an indication that my body was getting its required nutrients more efficiently.
The mucoid layer that was interfering with the nutrient breakdown and transfer to my bloodstream had been addressed. This assisted in my weight loss because I didn’t have to eat as much food to get the required amount of nutrients.
I eat a plant-based diet which is a nutrient dense diet and cleaning my small intestine with mullein leaf allowed me to more efficiently absorb those nutrients into my blood stream, feed my body, and support my immune system.
