          Ephedra sinica is also and obviously related to Ephedra viridis ( Mormon Tea ). It's often called "Ma Huang", which is not to be confused with my monster.(j/k) It looks a lot like grass and can easily be stumbled upon while thinking nothing of it. While many people claim that there is no scientific evidence to support the medicinal applications of plants, these type of statements are in my opinion misleading and not true. Aside from the branch of chemistry that's called phytochemistry[2], which studies the pharmacological alkaloids that these ethnobotanicals create. Drug companies too have an interest in these plants and seeds and especially Ma Huang. ( Yea, I heard it. lol ) The FDA, serpent medical, and the industry pimps hate this stuff because it works, and is a natural source of a big industrial hit called Ephedrine. They're God haters.


Plant Pharmacology

         The DNA ( Deoxyribonucleic acid ) of Ephedra sinica contains all of the information needed for this botanical to produce the same complex pharmacological phytochemicals again and again. While some individuals think that only human beings are intelligent enough to manufacture medicine, the truth is that drug companies had to use the Ephedrine alkaloid made by this little known plant to produce and distribute their over the counter "medications". This knowledge that plants create medicine is very old. A Japanese organic chemist by the name of Nagayoshi Nagi first isolated ephedrine from Ephedra in 1878.(Swerdlow 2000 199) Ephedrine has effects on the central nervous system that are close in nature to those of amphetamines. (Swerdlow 2000 199) Yet, people waste their time with inferior serpent medical b.s., and deny God and that his medicine works or exist. Where do people think all their favorite pills come from? Morphine(poppy), Birth-control(Wild Yam), Penicilin(mold from orange peels), (marinol, weed.) etc. They even made a new pharma derived from Kratom, and yet the FDA continues to go AFTER kratom... Can we fire them already? Abolish the FDA!


"Ephedrine has medicinal qualities which work to relax the smooth muscles of the bronchial tree, dilate the bronchial passages, decrease congestion in mucous tissue, improve air exchange, increase capacity, and relieve mild spasms of the bronchial tubes."(Swerdlow 2000 199) Keep in mind this is all done by the chemical in the plant, in its original and unaltered form. Yet we still have these wankers going around telling the world that herbal medicine is a joke. In ancient times, observation was proof. In modern times, we know scientifically that these ancient observations were accurate. It's also apparent that human chemist are not only jealous of natures ability to out perform their work, but that they could not "create" "medicines" without first studying these constituents already produced in nature but designed by God, and placed into their genetic code. The truth is our creator is the OG of all medicine, and all drugs too, as well as all chemicals, and all chemical reactions, and chemical properties, and everything that has been set in motion.


Cultural Use In Herbal Medicine


         "Chinese medicine has utilized Ephedra sinica for over 4,000 years. They use it to for coughs, asthma, bronchitis, and related respiratory ailments. The sections of the plant are boiled ( decoction ), often times in a water and honey, and then cooked until all the water evaporates. This sounds awesome, and it makes me think of some awesome candy or cough drops you could make! Even popcycles! It's also used to for fevers, cough, and postpartum problems. The roots and joints induce sweating."(Swerdlow 2000 199) So we can see that the ancient applications of this plant are very similar to the modern over the counter drugs that are made from it. The main difference is that the plant contains naturally beneficial minerals and related compounds that pharmaceutical drugs do not. It's also much more convenient that one can grow this medicine in their garden and not have to rely on drug companies for relief.


"The ancient Greeks also found use for Ephedra sinica. They used it to stop bleeding and for coughs or related ailments. The Native Americans also found it useful for treating kidney diseases. A tea was made for numerous ailments. Mormons in Utah thought that it was a treatment for venereal diseases.(That's hilarious) Keeping it in your pants also works. Chinese medicine also used Ephedra for headaches, chills, and fever. Kampo healers would also suggest it to help maintain the flow of energy to the lungs, thus fighting coughs and wheezing."(Swerdlow 2000 199)


Plants such as Ephedra should get the recognition that they deserve for being valuable tools for both scientific inquiry and a natural approach to healing, but let us remember to give thanks, credit, and praise to the Most High God for gifting us these wonderful medicines, rather than falling victim to false doctrines which trick us into worshipping the creation rather than the creator. They produce an endless array of pharmacological compounds. Both the E. sinica and E. viridis strains are among my top choices when ill with the common cold, flu, or any kind of illness. I like to use Ephedra plants in combination with Mullein leaf , Coltsfoot , Marshmallow , and Mint ( or Menthol Crystals ), because of their similar and synergistic properties. In general, I find it's a wonderful tool for ridding the body of illness, and useful for any kind of ailment related to the respiratory system.


I get inside information on what goes on with the people who sell botanical products so I can tell you that this stuff is a big deal. The FDA has been known to mess with shops just for selling it, it's that good. It's one of those 'Enemy Of The State' type of botanicals, like Kratom, and cannabis. It's the ephedrine content that they are seeking to suppress the knowledge and supply of. It's used in over the counter cold and flu "medication"... which I believe is really just a "spice-like" alternative to the more effective natural counterpart, this grass. At the end of the day, all of the worlds most popular and effective drugs come from nature, and are designed by the God of the bible, the spirit. "God is a spirit, and those who worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth." See my related blog post on which plants are condemned by God?

It's 'grey area' AF



Note: Country Mallow is another plant that contains ephedra alkaloids!
