Cowage As Brain Food


             Cowage is most commonly sold in the us as a supplement for its l-dopa content. In traditional culture it was known for use in more of an "entheogenic" context, which simply means a reigious purpose or in religious practice. It's another ingredient used in the Amazonian tea known as "Ayahuasca" made by Shamans of Peru, and others. BUT! It has its place in western herbal remedies, being used as a neuro-supplement. The plant literally contains compounds of serotonin (5-HTP), nicotine, active ayahuasca constituents, L-Dopa which is almost identical to dopamine, beta-carboline, and bufotenine. Cowage is a medicinal / pharmacological gold mine due to its large amount of scientifically valuable constituents. It's just one of an endless number of examples of intelligent design at work.


                 Because of its chemical constituents, and ancient Shamanic history, Cowage is a plant species which relates to the "Third eye". The third eye is 'the eye of the mind', as referenced by cultures throughout himan history. Scientifically, the third eye is referred to as the Pineal Gland. It's a small gland in the center of the brain that releases melatonin and other neurochemicals related to human experiences including those of dreams and near death experiences. It's interesting to me that it literally contains some neuro-chemicals, and one precursor to dopamine. I see the correlation. The bible warns about self exaltation and occult practices. Some people benefit from this plant however, due to its ability to assist those with specific conditions related to neurochemistry. Consult with your professional healthcare provider and thoroughly research this stuff before making decisions. Make sure you can trust your healthcare provider as well, and avoid deceptive malpractice operations and falling victim for gaslighting.


The Cowage plant contains the same chemicals found in the human brain, and specifically those released and controlled by the pineal gland. There's a good paper on the pineal written by a Colorado university. Look it up i'm sure you can find it. Because of its chemical composition, it may be a useful aid for dreaming, and stimulating your neurochemistry. Sense it also contains nicotine, I wonder how this would work for those trying to quit? I'm not saying it will work but I see an interest there. There are a lot of extracts of L-dopa which are made from this but personally, I don't like extracts. You never know what it is, and it excludes all of the constituents and focuses solely on one. In some cases extracts may help, but if you're interested in the other stuff in the seeds, they yield pointless. It's possible to find powdered Cowage seed. A very hefty duty blender would be required to pulvarize these into powder. Better call Tim Allen from the 90's to help you.


Medicinal

                 The Mucuna plant has many traditional and medicinal applications by herbalists including coping with abdominal pain, cholera, diabetes, infertility, scorpion stings, snakebites, and even toothache. Because of the large amount of Levo-dopa ( a precursor to dopamine ) in the seed it is also used by alternative practitioners for its believed benefits for Parkinson's disease. Cowage, or Mucuna Pruriens has also been used as an aphrodisiac in both men and women due to its dopamine inducing properties, by fans of natural supplements. It has made a believer out of a lot of new people. Dr Axe is a fan of Mucuna pruriens also Watch out for synthetic extracts sold by serpent medical! Support those who support God and those who do his work, not those who play his role as the Most High!


It's a powerful additive to many infusions. Because of its chemical constituents, this ethnobotanical can interact with other ingredients. This is part of what makes holistic health science so fascinating to those who dedicate their lives to the ancient art. Alone, these plants are powerful, but combined they are epic. On a final note, I'd like to add that I enjoy it with some good Red Vein Borneo. It seems to be an excellent potentiator with many botanicals. Warning: Parts of the plant do produce chemical irritants, primarily the fuzzy coating used to protect the seeds during their developement. Note the nicotine content of the seeds as well. Women who are pregnant or may become pregnant should avoid them at all costs!

I'm a firm believer in God made medicine. I also believe that there are often spiritual causes for our ailments. The bible calls these either blessings or curses. A curse if it's negative, a blessing if it's positive. Good health is a blessing. Many plants are a blessing, and are meant to be used as such. If you are actively provoking Jah however, expect no medicine to banish the curse. Exodus 15:26 “And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the LORD that healeth thee.”
