Word certainly has gotten around about how wonderful Plantain is for Menopause. I have clients from all over the world who have suffered terribly with hot flushes, mood swings and emotional highs and lows and the common words I hear from them is “thank you, thank you so much, taking your Plantain tea / tincture has given me my life back and my hormones are now balanced, the flushes are gone and my moods and emotions are balanced again”.
We have found that plantain is a superb eliminator of heavy metal toxins from the body.
Broadleaf Plantain can help you eliminate the heavy metal toxicity caused by mercury amalgam fillings
Some years ago I was helping a colleague learn to operate his newly-acquired blood analysis machine, there were about 10 volunteers having their blood analysed. My blood samples consistently showed a complete absence of heavy metal toxins - like lead, cadmium, mercury etc.
As I was one of the few there who still had mercury amalgam fillings in my teeth it seemed unlikely but it remained throughout the day. Finally we all got together and compared notes - the one item that was a regular part of my diet was plantain - and no-one else's!
It was clear that by adding plantain to my food on a regular basis I was achieving a heavy metal elimination effortlessly - one person there had paid thousands of dollars to have her amalgam fillings replaced!!
Plaintain is found all over the world, and is one of the most abundant and accessible medicinal herbs.This powerful herb keeps on astounding me as I see the wonderful results that occur with my patients.

 a characteristic it shares with it's close relative narrow-leafed plantain.

Broadleaf plantain is also a highly nutritious edible plant with generous amounts of calcium and vitamins A, C, and K. The young leaves can be eaten raw in salads while they are tender but once they mature they are best boiled in stews or steamed.
It has a close relative, Narrow leaved Plantain which is so similar in it's characteristics that we combine the 2 when we make our Plantain Tea and Tincture.
