My Dad is currently eating 4 oz of fresh fava beans a day. They storeÂ he is buying them will only have them during summer. How can he make itÂ last?
If we are making tincture with pods and brandy ( why only brandy if I mayÂ ask), shake it for a month and use liquid. How much of this liquid is equalÂ to the 4 oz he is eating now. He is eating pods and beans. How much pods doÂ I need to last about 9 months? And is it ok to drink alcohol for the rest of
Also, is there a way to make powder out of pods. The question again how muchÂ powder equal to the 4 oz of fresh fava beans.
I couldn’t find any answers to these questions and will appreciate your help
Brandy crosses the blood brain barrier, other alcohol does not do this so well I am told. I hold my extract under my tongue and that seems to make it work very quickly before it goes to my stomach.Â You can also put the amount OF EXTRACT IN A COFFEE MUG AND POUR BOILING WATER OVER IT TO TAKE OFF THE brandy. I do Â not know how many drops of tincture he will need for a dose.. Start small (10 drops perhaps and check the effect, and go up or down using the minimal amount for symptom relief. You will have to judge this for yourself and experiment. I started with 2 drops 3 times a day for a while.Â This is my 7th year on tincture and now I require about 40 drops 4 to 6 times a day. Also eating egg plant and peppers are a great support with the fava Â and especially papayas.
Hope this helps.
