Medicinal Use

                  If you've browsed this website then you understand by now the science behind natural medicine. I'm not making medical claims, simply pointing out phytochemical researcher. Plants create pharmacological chemicals. Phytochemistry is a branch of chemistry that studies these psychoactive and medicinal constituents created by nature. Mondia whitei of South Africa too, creates medicinal alkaloids. If you want to know more about the scientific research behind this plant, check out the sources and resources at the bottom of the page.


Mondia whitei ( or Modondo ) demonstrates antacid properties, which makes it useful for treating indigestion. It also has galactagogue, tonic, analgesic, aphrodisiac, and anti-stress inducing properties. The roots are used as an aphrodisiac and it shows promise in treating erectile dysfunction, and impotence. These plants and the science behind the pharmacological chemical constituents that they produce are all clear indications of the superior intelligent design that exist behind all creation. Whether scientist want to admit it or not, science itself proves intelligent design. The sky is blue my friends, not orange.


A medicine can be prepared several ways. When dealing with roots and barks, a decoction is made by boiling them for about 30 minutes. When using leaves, stems, and flowers, either a tincture or tea can be used. Use only high proof liquor for tincture production, being at least 75% alcohol. Different cultures are known to do things in different ways. There are some great books out there on this topic. The way that God intended is always the best way. Other paths have horrible consequences. For every petty sin, is a single footstep, down a path which leads to eternal destiny.


Other Common Names

                 This ethnobotanical has many, many names. The English typically refer to it as White's ginger, or "tonic root". In Angola ( Angola is a southern African nation ), it's called Mudondo. The Zulu ( as mentioned on botanical guides quite a bit ) call it Mindi. There are sooo many more names that this little known plant is referred to as. Tonic is basically a medicine that makes you feel good, as simple as that sounds. It promotes a sense of well-being basically.


Precautions

These seeds can be toxic.

Cultivation

                 It's very easy to cultivate from seed. It's better to sow them right after they are harvested, but either way its fine. Use some natural insecticide to prevent attacks by critters. Sow after the first frost. Use peat-moss or vermiculite in your soil mixture. They take 3-6 weeks to germinate. They don't like a lot of wind and sun in the early stages of growth. Treat them as if they were your own child and they will thrive.


Africa - A Land Of Ethnobotany

                 Mondia whitei is one of many sacred ethnobotanicals sourced from Africa. Specifically, this strain is obtained from the Southern regions of this continent. It's very interesting how most ( it seems ) of the worlds entheogenic and medicinal plants originate from there. I have a couple of theories on this. We can think about the theory of Pangaea ( that all continents fit together ). If this is the case, most of the worlds plants were concentrated in this one area, where they were then spread to other lands that slowly drifted away from what we now call Africa. It was included on the ancient biblical maps of Mesopotamia! so Africa dates back to the origins of human existence. Africa has some truly remarkable plants native to it, including Cannabis.


At any rate, I definitely believe that the western world has a lot to learn from these cultures. Here we see wild plants mostly as "weeds". Instead, we need to view them as what they are, proof of God, and gifts for research, medicine, etc. Without plants, animals, and the rest of creation on earth and even the entire cosmos, we could not survive. I think we owe it to the creator to display the utter most appreciation and care for ourselves, our environment, the gifts which we've been given, and to our future. The rules of the bible will prove theirself to you when tested.

Thou shalt have no other gods before me; Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, nor any likeness of anything that is in the heavens above, nor the earth beneath, nor the sea, nor beneath the sea. Thou shalt not bow down thyselves to them, nor serve them. For I they Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, unto the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, and shewing mercy unto thousands of them who love me and keep my commandments. see Derek Prince, Breaking Generational Curses
