Pine Needle Tea

Question: Why did British sailors prize lemons to prevent scurvy and Native Americans not afflicted?
Answer: Pine Needles.

Related Information:

It is a very simple remedy to always have sufficient vitamin C, if you chew on or brew pine needles for tea. Simply remove needles from indigenous pine, rinse off any pollen, dust or dirt and chew or quickly boil for tea. Do not simmer for an extended period of time because heat depletes all natural vitamins from everything that we consume. Chlorophyll in the pine needles is what provides not only vitamin C but vitamins A and E, too.

Pine needles are the leaves of pine trees. It is through these needles that pine trees process their life source: Sunlight. Needles turn sunlight into food energy for pine trees through chlorophyll transforming sunlight to combine with water and carbon dioxide. The resulting food energy for trees is sugar.

Chlorophyll is contained in chloroplasts and captures light. Chlorophyll is the pigment of green, too. We understand this entire process as photosynthesis. The end results are oxygen for breathing, wood for the fire, and maple syrup for breakfast. Without the knowledge of Native American Indians, early settlers would have never known of the benefits of pine needles and sap. Therefore, the next time you sip on a cup of pine needle tree or are walking through the woods and decide to chew on a few needles to assist your immune system, look around and thank Native American Indians for sharing their generational genius with America's early settlers.

A Natural First-Aid Liniment


Take one pint of rubbing alcohol, and add one teaspoon each powdered cayenne pepper, myrrh, comfrey and golden seal root. Shake to mix, and shake daily for 2 weeks to completely macerate, then use freely. You will love what this stuff does.

I first learned about this in my early 20's; a simple version of what I make is in the book Back to Eden by Jethro Kloss. It is unsurpassed for cuts, abrasions, scrapes, and especially insect bites. Nothing in this world will neutralize the results of stinging nettle on skin like this liniment. Whenever I visit my brother in Baraboo, I invariably get into nettle when visiting Mom's grave site, and the first words out of my mouth when I return to his house are, "May I please use your liniment?" I have given this liniment to those at work as well. One lady I worked with had a rash on her legs that she put the liniment on. She told me, "I've had this rash for years, and it's gone!" Another lady had an infected cut on her thumb. She put the liniment on it, and within 48 hours, she said the cut was almost completely gone. A student I work with took some of this liniment home to her mother who put it on their dog; the dog had a really nasty raw rash and wouldn't stop scratching - everything they had tried had failed. The liniment healed the rash within days and it has never returned. A guy I knew many years ago cut himself slicing food (he was a chef) and cut himself pretty deeply. The liniment healed his cut so fast he got scared, couldn't believe the cut could heal so fast, and reopened the wound; he again put liniment on it, with the same results. This time he didn't reopen the wound.

In case you are wondering, the cayenne pepper is almost pure vitamin C, the golden seal root and myrrh are antiseptic, and the comfrey binds flesh together. Take a bunch of raw meat cut into pieces, add comfrey liberally, and the pieces of meat will "glue" themselves together.

To make your own colloidal silver at home, assemble:


  • Three 9 volt batteries
  • 9-volt battery terminal caps with copper wiring attached
  • Two alligator clips with copper wiring attached
  • A small glass jar
  • Two wooden clothespins
  • Two one-ounce silver bullion coins
(Editor's Note:  "Bullion silver" is different the "coin silver".  Coin silver is an alloy of silver and other metals; bullion silver is at a minimum 900/1,000ths pure but is normally ".999 fine" which means 999/1,000ths pure.)

Sequentially connect the three batteries to each other using the terminal caps as shown in the photo.

Splice the wiring feeding from each of the two alligator clips to each of the two ends of wiring from the terminal caps.

With wooden clothes pins, attach one ounce silver bullion to each side of the small glass container.

Fill the glass container with water so that the silver bullion is immersed in the water, approximately 1/3 of the coinís surface.

Attach the alligator clips. You will see silver being infused into the water. After approximately three minutes, detach the alligator clips, stir the water, and drink.

A combination of colloidal silver, raw garlic and buffered C works wonders for me and my family when we are ďdown with something,Ē and we have no idea what it might be. I keep my set up at home handy to use at any time, and used it liberally the last time I was not feeling well; every 8 ounces of water I drank had a teaspoon full of colloidal silver in it, and it didnít take long to recover.

Note: Do not forget about the water! If you walk away, after ten minutes or longer, the water will begin turning a brown color and will not taste very good! If you need to walk away, REMEMBER to return to the colloidal silver!

Disclaimer: The [accepted] medical uses of silver include its incorporation into wound dressings to treat external infections, and its use as an antiseptic and disinfectant in medical appliances. Silver is also promoted within alternative medicine in the form of colloidal silver, although it has not been shown to be safe or effective.  The above is not an FDA endorsed concoction, of course, we're not trying to sell it either.  Use at your own discretion and at your own risk - if in doubt, go see a (government endorsed) "Health Care Professional".
