在草药补充剂的成分列表中，酒精是很常见的。在这些产品中加入酒精（有时名字为“乙醇”）的做法长期存在，而且在继续，这是一个很大的问题，实际上这是一种古老的错误做法。因此，尽管医生、中医师或其他执业医师充满爱心地向我们提供含酒精的草药以帮助我们疗愈，请寻找替代方法。 我们应该避免含有酒精成分的草药有几点重要原因。对于滴剂等草药提取物，酒精的存在通常意味着草药的浓度较低。此外，现在草药产品中的酒精大多数都是玉米酒精，因此即使是有机的也受到转基因的污染（草药产品制造商并不了解这一点）。转基因玉米可喂养病毒、细菌、真菌和癌症，这根本上破坏了草药的纯度，抵消了草药的益处。 花精也是一样。其蒸馏应经过精心准备，同样转基因的玉米酒精会污染花精。在顺势疗法中，植物物质经稀释以增强其功效，疗愈师非常注意监控患者正在服用哪些其他草药、补充品和药品，以免干扰顺势疗法效果。但却没有人意识其中的酒精会干扰和中断草药疗法的预期疗愈效果。 请不要相信在草药产品中添加热水时酒精会被燃烧掉。首先必须沸腾速度加快的水才能使酒精真正燃烧掉，大多数人只是用温水或热水与草药提取物一起使用。 另一个重要原因是玉米酒精不会因为热力而消失。玉米酒精的问题不仅仅是酒精本身， 还有酒精留下的残留物。当我们使用含有酒精的草药产品时，这些酒精已经在瓶子中存在很久时间了，其中的酒精已经从各个方面彻底改变了草药的属性，你无法改变这一点。 因此为了保护自己，请非常仔细地阅读草药补充品的标签，并避免任何含酒精或乙醇的产品。请寻找不含酒精的版本，如果实在找到不含酒精的草药补充剂，那么以葡萄酒精制成的产品是第二选择，而白兰地酒精则次之。尽管草药产品中含有任何酒精成分仍然不是理想的草药补充剂，但上述两种替代品比转基因的玉米酒精不知道要好多少倍。
ALCOHOL IN HERBAL PRODUCTS
It’s all too common to see alcohol on an herbal supplement’s list of ingredients. The long-standing practice of including alcohol (sometimes called “ethanol”)in these products is still going strong—and it’s a problem. No one is at fault here. It’s an old practice that hasn’t yet been fixed and replaced. So while your loving doctor,herbalist,or other practitioner offers you so much other important care,and only intends to help by offering you herbal remedies with alcohol in them,it’s best to ask for an alternative.
There are a few reasons why you should steer clear of alcohol in herbal products. In the case of herbal extracts such as tinctures,the presence of alcohol usually means that there’s a lower concentration of the medicinal herb. Further,most alcohol in herbal products is corn grain alcohol,and therefore GMO-contaminated,even if it’s organic—which herbal product manufacturers don’t know. GMO corn feeds viruses,bacteria,fungi,and cancer,which defeats the intended purity of the herbs. The alcohol cancels out the herb’s benefits.
The same goes for flower essences. These distillations are meant to be so carefully prepared,so delicate—and then the “the presence of GMO corn grain alcohol pollutes it. And in homeopathy, where you have a plant substance that’s been diluted to enhance its potency, those administering it are often very careful about monitoring what other herbs, supplements, and pharmaceuticals someone is taking so as not to disturb the effects of this homeopathic process. Meanwhile, no one realizes that the alcohol used to preserve the dilution is a mutated, Frankensteined substance that’s completely foreign to the body, and interrupts the intended healing effects of the herbal therapy.
Don’t be fooled by assurances that the alcohol in herbal products burns off when you add hot water. For one thing, you have to add water that’s boiling at an accelerated rate for the alcohol to truly burn off—and most people only use warm or hot water with their extracts.
For another, corn grain alcohol is not a phantom substance that disappears when heat is applied; the problem with the corn grain alcohol is not just the alcohol content itself. You can’t get rid of whatever residue the alcohol leaves behind. Plus, by the time you use an herbal product such as a tincture, it’s already been sitting in a bottle “ for months or even years, and in that time, the alcohol has saturated the herbal content in the bottle. Being soaked in corn grain alcohol has changed the herb in every way, shape, and form, and you can’t burn off alteration to the herb itself.
To protect yourself, read the labels of herbal supplements very carefully and avoid any that list alcohol or ethanol. Actively seek out alcohol-free versions. If it’s impossible to find alcohol-free, then a product made with grape alcohol should be your first pick, and brandy is the next-best preservative. While any alcohol in the herbal product is still not ideal, these two alternatives are light years ahead of the GMO options.
