An herbal food diluted in distilled water and ethanol may be used as “natural medicine”. Natural
ethanol is an alcohol distilled from grain and is also known as neutral alcohol . Synthetic ethanol is
made from an explosive, inflammable, compound known as acetylene gas. It is cheap, “lifeless”
and un-natural and should not be used in making herbal extracts.
A frequently asked question is what herbal extracts are and why do they contain a natural or
neutral alcohol. Herbal extracts are herbal plant foods that have been diluted in a liquid. This is a
“natural medicine”.
An herbal extract can be made with something that allows an herb to dissolve in it. This can
include most common liquids, such as water, vinegar, wine, glycerin (sugar and fat compound most
commonly derived from animal tissue) or a neutral alcohol. When you put an herbal tea bag into a
cup of hot water, the color, taste and aroma, which dissolve into the water make herbal water
extract. However, some parts of the herb in the tea bag do not dissolve in water. Water will not
dissolve the oil, waxy, detergent, enzymes or hormonal content of the herb. Vinegar, wine and
glycerin will dissolve a small amount of this.
The fact is that a combination of distilled water and a neutral alcohol is the best fluid known for
dissolving all parts of any herb. A distilled water and neutral alcohol extract give an herbal food in
a “predigested” form. It should be noted that when you get the full strength of an herbal food, a
little goes a long way. (So don’t over-eat!) The concept of moderation is the key.
Extracts are intended to be used to supplement the diet with herbal foods in an easily absorbable
form. Most people are not even aware that they may be carrying around as much as ten pounds of
rather disgusting debris coating the surfaces of their digestive canal: stomach, small and large
intestines. This debris forms a barrier between the food, which is eaten, and the absorption of the
needed nutrition. This means the digestive system needs some help.

Extensive additional information can be obtained by using the SEARCH BOX on the www.everythingherbs.com website.
When you take a look at the digestive canal of the adult, you see a tube or pipe about 26 feet long
which is often clogged or very slow to empty due to debris or worse yet, if not eliminated, this
putrid barrier film can itself be constantly reabsorbed back into the body. Not only is this barrier of
debris bad for absorption of commonly eaten foods, but also herbal powders, herbal powders in
capsules, herbal pills, and vitamin tablets. An efficient method was needed to get herbal foods
absorbed through this barrier film and dissolve the barrier itself. Otherwise, herbs would not
nourish and act like the health food books say they should. Herbal extracts solve the puzzle. Not
only can they cross the debris barrier, they do so rapidly and can help to dissolve the barrier in the
process. This eliminates the problem of having to take 114 tablets and capsules per day to finally
get something through the debris barrier and dissolve it. As a matter of fact an herbal extract can
be applied externally right over the area where required. This, of course, would be difficult to do
with a capsule or tablet.
Depending on the quantity, a neutral alcohol performs different functions when introduced into or
on the body. In minute quantities (drops), it acts as a carrier to whatever is dissolved in it. It
dissolves herbal food substances and allows for their easy absorption by the body. In larger
quantities, it acts as a stimulant. By the glassful, alcohol acts as a depressant to the body functions
and as an intoxicant. This constitutes abuse rather than use. A person can tell the difference.
Dr. William Donald Kelly, author of many books on natural ways to become healthier, tells us that
the human pancreas (principal digestive organ of the body) actually produces a small amount of a
natural, neutral (ethanol) alcohol on a constant basis so that we will not freeze. As a further
observation, most mouthwashes and deodorants utilize a fairly high percentage of alcohol that acts
as a carrier for the deodorant, mouth and breath cleansing substances. In many cases, these are
extracts of cleansing and aromatic substances. The alcohol acts as a carrier. Many times a
combination of neutral alcohol, water and an herb or herbs will form a complex that no longer
shows up as three things, but rather as one compound. If a person can use a mouthwash or
underarm deodorant, they can probably use an herbal extract without a problem. If they cannot
use them without a problem, then they should probably use capsules, tablets or teas.
A fair question might be how much neutral alcohol should an extract contain? Roughly, a mixture
of one-third neutral alcohol and two-thirds water will dissolve enough of the herb so that a person
gets the proper nourishment in a few drops of the extract. An extract could be made with so much
water that you would have to consume bottles of the extract to achieve the same nutritional value
you could get in a few drops of a one-third neutral alcohol extract.


Well-Known Member
We need to go back to our roots. I firmly believe that every plant on this planet earth was put here by the creator for us to use consume to maintain a healthy body and while some of us (myself included) don't practice that holistic lifestyle we turn to natural remedies for cures when we have ailments.

Thanks for posting OP. I love old threads and this is one that needs to be bumped so that it doesn't get swallowed up by new threads.
