Dear Aunt bean ,
First i should thank you so much for helping to people with PD.Â I live in Iran and i have access easily to fresh fava . IÂ am interested to make a tincture from fava pods for more L-dopa.i understand almost all of method , but need your help yet.Â Steps are :
1- remove beans from pods , and gather pods enough.
2- steam them by a device for example steam cooker to pods begin changing in
3- dry them , by a fruit drier .
Is it ok ? or i should to add brandy ?
I would steam the pods and then juice them to remove the indigestible fibers and make pod chips (bean blobs) according to recipe on pamphlet that is downloadable by clicking on the image on the top right of this page. They work well to supply extra l-dopa.
Hope this helps.

Do you know of a good source to purchase mucina pruriens powder. This is to help with tremors and other ailments associated with Parkinson’s. Newly diagnosed and not using any prescribed meds. Thank you. Joann
I do not. My understanding from an interview with Herbalist Andrew Bentley from Kentucky is that the energetic charge you need to get must be derived from Mucuna that is grown in the wild which is not the source of commercially grown Mucuna.
Maybe someone else here has a recommendation for you.
