1. Oats (Lat. Avena Sativa) is one of the most famous and loved grains in the world.
In the past, it was not appreciated as, for example, barley or wheat, but over time its benefits became known to all.
Oats thrive best in temperate climates, and are now most grown in Russia and Canada.It has been used in folk medicine since ancient times where it has been used to regulate the menstrual cycle, treat dysmenorrhea, osteoporosis, and urinary tract infections.
Although most popular in the form of oatmeal, real oats are those in their original grain form, which has not been processed.
Such oats are nutritionally much more valuable, which is why they have been the subject of numerous studies confirming its broad medicinal properties.
Oats are rich in minerals phosphorus, potassium, calcium, iron, magnesium, zinc, copper and manganese.
Vitamin contains B complex vitamins: thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid, vitamin B6 and folic acid.
Oats are the source of many antioxidants, the most important of which are vitamin E, phytic acid and phenolic compounds, among which avenantramides are nowadays a frequent subject of nutritional research.

2. Equisetum (horsetail, snake grass, puzzlegrass) is the only living genus in Equisetaceae, a family of vascular plants that reproduce by spores rather than seeds. Equisetum is a “living fossil”, the only living genus of the entire class Equisetopsida, which for over 100 million years was much more diverse and dominated the understory of late Paleozoic forests. Some Equisetopsida were large trees reaching to 30 meters tall.The genus Calamites of the family Calamitaceae, for example, is abundant in coal deposits from the Carboniferous period. The pattern of spacing of nodes in horsetails, wherein those toward the apex of the shoot are increasingly close together, inspired John Napier to invent logarithms.
A superficially similar but entirely unrelated flowering plant genus, mare’s tail (Hippuris), is occasionally referred to as “horsetail”, and adding to confusion, the name mare’s tail is sometimes applied to Equisetum.
Despite centuries of use in traditional medicine, there is no evidence that Equisetum has any medicinal properties.
Prepare horseradish tea and drink it instead of water.
The horseradish tea stimulates urinary excretion (diuretic action) which makes it effective in kidney and bladder diseases.
3. Ruins (Lat. Cotinus), a small plant genus from the Ruves family, to which 7 recognized species of native shrubs and trees belong.
The Latin name of the genus uses more Plinie for one shrub that turns purple. In Balkan, the common rust of C. coggygria is known, a medicinal species spread throughout Europe and east all the way to China. It is poisonous and toxic, causing vomiting and diarrhea. This plant is a lifeline for urinary and kidney diseases and even cancer.
Prepare tea from the ruin plant and drink it instead of water. Always take breaks to cleanse the body.
Tea must be used under medical supervision or on the advice of herbalists, and by no means alone, although the plant is not at all toxic.
Preparation: 1 tablespoon of dried dry Rujevina wood, and 0.5 liters of cold water. Boil the contents for 5 minutes and then strain. Let it sit for another hour. During the day, take 3 times a glass of tea.
A slightly stronger tea is made for a bath or liner. 50 g of leaves of wood and 2 l of boiling water. Cook for 20 minutes, strain. Let it sit for another hour – and pour into the tub.
