Pine trees, are everywhere! And pine needle tea is a must have for every apothecary and kitchen cupboard. My family uses evergreen tea quite often, and has been for a long time. The main purpose for us to use evergreen tea is at the first hint of a cold or flu. I had already wrote a separate blog post regarding the use of spruce needle tea during the winter months, you might want to go have a read here
Pine needles have much of the same effect, and many of the exact same benefits as spruce tea, in face, I often mix them together for a combination brew for maximum benefits.
So the main focus on this blog will be very specific towards pine needles.
So what does Pine needles have to do with Suramin and Shikimic acid? Let me link you over to two very important articles, that I recommend you read in FULL. There are alot of scientific evidence that backs up the fact that the new MRNA RNA vaccines , have the potential to "transmit particles of the spike protein to others after someone has been vaccinated. The manufactures know this, and this was concluded in their own studies and vaccine trials. They actually required that non vaccinated individuals who came down with specific symptoms after having close contact with a trial participant to report the side effects within 24 hours. Alarming? So what are the potential documented side effects?
Side effects included:
micro-clots and sudden bruising throughout the body
exceptionally heavy menstrual cycles among both the young and post menopausal
reduction in breast milk
sterility among both women and men
household pets dying shortly after the owners get the shot.
Please note that these are all recorded adverse events that are being recorded through the USA Vaers ( Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System ) for vaccine injuries related to the covid shot. And now, people from all over the world are experiencing these symptoms even though they DID NOT take the shot. Now I always like to encourage my readers to do their own research, and this is no exception. I want every one of you to go online and start researching this information, weather you got the shot or not, it doesnt matter to me becasue I like to believe that we should all have a choice as to what is injected into our own bodies. When you do your research, stay away from facebook, google, and other major social media giants, as they like to really censor the information that we consume. If you want to use a search engine that is not as censored, use Duck Duck Go, or my favorite, Quant. You may even see the difference in search results when you compare the same topic searched on different engines.
Alright, back to the topic at hand... Suramin. So what does suramin have to do with all of this ??
Suramin has inhibitory effects against components of the coagulation cascade and against the inappropriate replication and modification of RNA and DNA. Excessive coagulation causes blood clots, mini-clots, strokes, and unusually heavy menstrual cycles. You might notice that these are the same side effects being seen in post vaccinated and close contacts of the vaccinated ! Mind blown yet?
Here is the article that you have to read regarding the spike protein and its effects on vascular cells, revealing that the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein is what’s actually causing vascular damage in covid patients and covid vaccine recipients, promoting the strokes, heart attacks, migraines, blood clots and other harmful reactions, this study was done by the Salk Institute (here)
So what does all of this have to do with Pine trees? Suramin is the possible antidote to the effects caused by the inappropriate replication and modification of RNA AND DNA, and this antidote can be found all over the world, possibly even in your own backyards....PINE NEEDLES.
As we already know, pine needle tea has very high anti-oxident properties, and is well known to treat things like cancer, inflammation, and respiratory illness. Pine has been used for centuries as sources of vitamin C and other phytochemicals that Native Americans used to treat respiratory infections and other ailments. Vitamin C is a known cure for scurvy, as scurvy is a disease of vitamin C deficiency. Pine needles contain many other substances that appear to reduce platelet aggregation in the blood, potentially preventing blood clots that lead to strokes, heart attacks and pulmonary embolism diagnoses. Read more on this amazing article by Mike Adams (here), he also has the published studies posted on his article, and as advocates for your own health and bodies, i know that you will read them thoroughly before coming to any conclusions regarding anything that is posted in this blog post. Because really, dont take my word for anything, look it up and research it yourself too! We truly do need more critical thinkers in the world who will take spoon fed information and confirm it for themselves first before taking claim that it must be true.
Now lets talk about Shikimic acid- something else that Mike Adams speaks about in his article. Shikimic acid is the molecule found in a Chinese herbal medicine used to treat the plague and respiratory illness, and is also found in pine needles! Researches know about this have worked to come up with a way to extract this molecule and is now used as a key ingredient in the flu drug, Tamiflu. Tamiflu is a known anti-viral medication used to treat.. the flu ! These researches found that-
Shikimic acid can be removed from the needles of white pine, red pine and other conifer trees simply by boiling the needles in water, said chemistry professor Ray Fort Jr.
One study published in ResearchGate confirms that shikimic acid offers antiplatelet-aggregating activity, meaning it helps halt blood clots. You can read about this study (here).
So what does this all mean ? Shikimic Acid can be used as a potential antidote for stopping blood clots and viral infections- it inhibits viral replication inside the body. Now lets be clear, I am no doctor, not even a herbalist, and so i cannot make any claims regarding the medicinal uses of any herb or supplements. I can however share with you educational information and encourage you to look further into the topic. One thing that is for sure, is that I have been making evergreen tea for my family for a long time, first signs of illness, we drink it. I have also shared this information with friends who get sick, and they have cured their own respiratory illness by using certain trees from their back yards. Not only is it great to use during an illness, it is also a great way to prevent an illness. Using in moderation as a daily drink, or a few times a week is a great way to keep your bodys immune system primed and ready for battle. There are a few precautions when using pine needle tea, and evergreens in general, which i will share with you right after i share with you my way of making pine needle tea!
Take a medium sized pot, that holds about 6 cups of water. Fill it with water and bring to a complete boil.
Throw in your Pine needles. For 6 cups of water, You can add in about 4 tablespoons of dried chopped pine needles. Allow the water to boil for another minute( do not over boil !!) then reduce the heat to a simmer. Leave the water to simmer for a few hours. The longer it simmers the more constituents that are pulled from the needles. You can add more water as it evaporates, or you can leave it and drink it as a concentrated decoction. I leave mine to simmer for 4 hours. Then you can filter out the plant material and pour into a jug. Drink hot or cold. For myself, i will pour a cup and then refrigerate for the day and drink it as needed. Discard any unused tea after 24 hours and make a new batch.
There are some serious precautions to consider when using pine needles. First and formost, DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH and remember that it is important to consult your trusted doctors before attempting to use any herbal remedies, supplements or natural products.
Second, please thoroughly research whatever herbs you are taking. The information that is provided here is not intended to treat, diagnose, or cure any illness or disease. What works for my family, might not work for yours. What works for my body, might have different outcomes for your body. Pine needles should not be consumed by pregnant women to be on the safe side. There are a lot of articles out there that claim that certain pines are toxic, and cause abortions in cattle, more specifically ponderosa pine.
For a safe alternative for pregnant and breastfeeding women, check out this study here about Dandelion tea . Another study performed by Science Direct demonstrates that "Dandelion (Taraxacum officinale L.) root components exhibit anti-oxidative and antiplatelet action." According to the Salk Institute, the oxidative and platelet actions of the SARS-CoV-2 is the cause of vascular damage in covid patients and covid vaccine recipients which includes strokes, heart attacks, migraines, blood clots and other harmful reactions that have already killed thousands of Americans. What the Science Direct study demonstrates is that Dandelion has the ability to be an 'antiplatelet' which "blocks protein to protein interaction of spike S1 to the human ACE2 cell surface receptor, INCLUDING five relevant mutations/variants".
A few other types of pine that are known to be toxic in livestock are Yew pines and Norfolk island pines, both of which are easily distinguishable and do not look anything like the pine trees you find in the forest. If you want help to identify certain pines, i will be making a blog post in the future to help others identify certain pines near me. I hope that this article has given people a good reason to start researching pine needles! Speaking of, I am going to go and brew myself a few cups of pine tea right now. Happy foraging and stay healthy !
Great place to read more about Suramin and Shikimic acid below :
There seems to be a lot of misconceptions regarding which pine needles to use, and I would like to set the record straight ! While I cannot account for which pine shave the most suramin and shikimic acid, ALL PINES CONTAIN THESE COMPOUNDS. Many people are seeking out Eastern white pine as the gold standard, however, all pines are great to use, aside from the few toxic varieties as mentioned above. In comparison, I will tell you about nettles. While all nettles are not the same, they all have similar compounds, some more or less then others, the same goes with pine. Enjoy!
