HJ: The list below encompasses some of the most powerful, medicinal and nutritious edible plants on the planet at this time. As they are medicines, they should be used with care. The plants clearly labelled to be included in the diet can be used more liberally, however, the more powerfully medicinal plants (which are marked as so), should be treated with respect and intake should be limited.
We recommend using fresh herbs liberally in your cooking and emphasizing the section D plants in your diet regularly as these are the safest and some of the most nutritious of the bunch. Even then, however, we recommend starting slowly. It is not that the plants are dangerous, however, they do affect the body powerfully and can cause cleansing at first if that is what your system needs. This can be uncomfortable if approached with too much vigor and so we recommend easing into it for maximum benefit and increase in happiness without the added cleansing burden.
