Hi Aunt Bean: 

I am trying to help out a close friend with PD. My daughters are both herbalists so have training in making, etc. I have been helping people heal on various levels starting with my own issues, for many years.
My questions are:
1. Would sprouting fava beans have significant benefits?  I tend to think so but would have to be ongoing so investing in a sprouter would be worth it. Appreciate your thoughts.
2. The creating a tincture process seems like a good direction my daughter might be interested in, but it is drawn out. Has anyone you know dabbled commercially in making a fava tincture?
Thanks for all you given to many
Sam

Answer to questions from Sam

  Sprouting organic sproutable dry beans is very simple and requires no special equipment. In a large bowl Soak  2 Cups favas in 5 cups  water, enough to keep them covered for 24 hours (filtered water. )Then drain them into a colander (bowl with drain holes) . Pour back into large bowl and rinse well. Then, back into colander to drain. Do the rinse and drain 3 times a day until they begin to sprout well. Usually, this takes 3 to 4 days unless the beans are old or are a variety with very tough skins. Keep rinsing 3 times a day until they  sprout. Please read the downloadable pamphlets on how to sprout beans and suggestions how to process and eat them or use them to make sprout balls, etc.
I don’t know  of anyone making the Fava tincture commercially and wish someone would.
God bless and guide you  Sam in how to help your friend.
