Immortelle. Where and how to find it?
Not so easy to find immortelle. It does not grow in the forest, does not find it, like St. John's wort, in fields rich in black soil. He likes endless steppes, open glades in forests, meadows - difficult ground for him.
As soon as they do not call immortelle. And cmin sandy, and yellow cat's paws (not to be confused with the grass of the usual cat's paw), and seshenitsa sandy, and dried flowers. But the name “immortelle” got accustomed to the people. Where did it come from?
Incredibly strong herb immortelle, healing properties and its contraindications formed the basis of the legend about the adventures of Odyssey. Before he returned to Penelope, brought him to the island of Psyche, where his ship and got into a sea accident - a shipwreck. The royal daughter rescued the barely breathing captain by giving him a bottle of priceless liquid — oil from immortelle flowers. The princess herself also constantly used the priceless liquid, which was why she was fabulously beautiful. What happened next on the island, the chroniclers are silent. It is important that he was reunited on Ithaca with his family.
Legend legend, but the name has a more prosaic explanation. Immortelle - one of the few plants that retains the structure and brightness of the paint in a dried form. And the fact that the bush grows on difficult ground also played a role. Doctors say they can cure immortelle for many ailments. It has useful properties and contraindications, as well as at any medicinal drug.
Gather a plant in the second half of summer, when the meadows and steppes are literally covered with a yellow immortelle carpet. But carefully, when collecting, you can make a mistake and collect cat's grass (why would you need it) or a pink immortelle useless for health - also dried flowers. Record signs of a folk doctor: yellow flowers with dry petals, leaves and stems are not bright green - they seem to be covered with mist or cobwebs. This effect is also called felt. Not sure what it looks like in nature? Recall a coltsfoot. Remembered what her stalks? These are exactly, only almost white, in the immortelle.
Immortelle against gastritis
Yellow cats have found the widest application in gastroenterology, and many of us are familiar with the diseases of this area: sometimes they sit in our livers, sometimes they become renal colic, then they give us gastritis and even jaundice. And all of what? From the irrepressible gluttony, from the consumption of delicious, but far from healthy fatty dishes, and even under alcohol. Therefore, we do not complain, but we quit drinking and are curing. Houses should always be grass immortelle, its use and contraindications should bounce off the teeth.
Immortelle has a choleretic and diuretic effect, and therefore has been successfully used for the following diseases:
- gastritis and liver disease,
- pancreatic malfunction and colitis,
- atherosclerosis and cholecystitis,
- cirrhosis and diabetes,
- jaundice and hypotension,

Immortelle against excess fat
In combination with other herbal remedies, sandy cmin reveals its strength. So, mannequins, actresses, who watch their weight, prefer herbal tea instead of regular teas, which include St. John's wort, chamomile, immortelle, birch buds.
A mixture consists of 4 plants in equal parts, for example, 100 grams of buds, chamomile, immortelle, and hypericum.

There is another recipe, when a liter of boiling water is poured into a thermos and 2 large spoons of collection are added. This tea (glass) is drunk warm in the evening after dinner.
What is the essence of the action of this tea for weight loss? Of course, in its components and their properties.
- Immortelle cleanses the body and improves intestinal motility, acts as a weak and diuretic.
- Chamomile - analgesic. Drives bile, purifies the blood and causes the metabolic processes to intensify.
- St. John's wort - strengthens the body, clears the gallbladder, soothes the stomach and acts tonic - uplifting and thirsting to lose weight.
- Birch buds remove excess water and the body, are choleretic and diuretic.
There are several nuances.
- The first - during this kind of diet can not drink. Immortelle has an accumulating effect, therefore it is able to delay alcohol in the body. And this is contaminated blood, a destructive effect on the liver, stagnation of bile and water.
- The second is that after they have achieved the desired result, it is better to restrain them in their gastronomical preferences and stop drinking tea for as long as 5 years.

Immortelle many names. And as soon as it is called:
- Cmin sandy,
- cat's yellow paws (not to be confused with grass with a similar name: ordinary cat's paws),
- sand sticks,
- dried flowers.
However, the name “immortelle” took root in the people. So where did it come from?
This herb is incredibly strong.. And its healing properties and contraindications to its use marked the beginning of the appearance of legends about Odyssey and his adventures. According to them, before the ancient Greek hero returned to his beloved Penelope, he came to the island of Psyche. The ship suffered a major shipwreck off its shores. The royal daughter managed to save the dying captain, letting him drink the drug from a vial with a priceless liquid from the flowers growing on the island of immortelle.
The august person was well acquainted with the properties of the immortelle flowers, because she herself constantly used this liquid. Legend does not hide that it was because the girl had a fabulous beauty. As they say, a fairy tale is a lie, but there is a hint in it. Thanks to Homer, we know about the unique properties of the main character of our article.
Tale of legend but the name has a more prosaic explanation. This is one of the few plants that is able to maintain the brightness of colors and structure, even in dried form. And the fact that a plant without visible difficulties can grow on difficult soil, also played a role in shaping its image of a resistant plant. Medical scientists claim that immortelle flowers can cure many diseases. However, this herb has not only beneficial properties, but also contraindications, as well as any medicinal drug. Therefore, before using it for any purpose, it is necessary to read the instructions for use.
The harvest of this useful plant is collected in the second half of summer, at this time the steppes and meadows are covered with a yellow immortelle like a dense carpet.

- dry petals
- the stem and leaves are pale green in color and as if in a fog or cobweb.
This natural effect is also called the term “felted.” If you can not imagine how this effect looks in nature, then remember such a plant as a coltsfoot and how its stems look. The immortelle is the same, only almost white.

Immortelle from excess weight

This tea can be made independently: the listed herbs in equal proportions must be mixed in equal parts, not less than 100 g. Mixed well, you need 1 tbsp. brew a spoon in a glass of boiling water and leave to infuse for 20-30 minutes. One glass is half a portion for a day to drink in the morning, half for the night and after that nothing to eat until the morning.
The result will not be slow to come. Reviews testify that this tea allows for a short time to lose weight by 4 sizes.
However, there are a few "but":
- First - if you decide to lose weight on this diet, then alcohol can not be drunk.

In addition, alcohol can react with the chemical composition of the drug and at least cancel its therapeutic effect. Plus, you will have: contaminated blood, stagnation of water and bile, a destructive effect on the liver.
- The second is that after the desired result is achieved, you will also have to restrain yourself in certain gastronomic preferences. For example, you have to completely abandon tea and coffee for the whole 5 years. And this will again be associated with the immortelle and his accumulating skill. Thus, you can easily earn shortness of breath, hypertension, allergic dermatitis, and so on.
