Product Description


In his book On Writing Well, William Zinsser describes a particular display on view at the National Baseball Museum and Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York.  It is a piece of slippery elm bark from Clear Lake, Wisconsin, birthplace of pitcher Burleigh Grimes.  During the games, Grimes chewed this kind of bark “to increase saliva for throwing the spitball.  When wet, the ball sailed to the plate in deceptive fashion.”

Now, unless you are a totally committed baseball buff, you would probably agree with Zinsser that “this would seem to be one of the least interesting facts available in America today.

From the Cayce readings, Mrs. B.C.’s letter indicates that she allowed the slippery elm bark drink to stand for three minutes before serving it to her son.  This agrees with Cayce’s suggestion, which states that slippery elm, should be prepared about two to three minutes before it is drunk.  It should not, however, be taken after it has stood for more than twenty or thirty minutes.  We can safely assume therefore, that the drink should be taken anywhere from three to twenty minutes after preparation but under no circumstances should it be taken after standing for more than thirty minutes.  Beyond that time it may become rancid.

Although Mrs. B.C. continued to give her son slippery elm with his dinner, best results are obtained by taking it first thing in the morning if possible one-half hour before breakfast.  The saffron tea, on the other hand, is taken in the evening.

The Chinese have long enjoyed the many benefits of slippery elm.  They considered it one of nature’s most excellent demulcents and nutritives, and employ it for its ability to absorb foul gases in the body, for its gentle, soothing action and because it is soothing, mucilaginous nature makes bowel evacuation easier and more effective.

From these accounts, as well as the Chinese influence, we can conclude that the slippery elm acts as a coating along the inner lining of the upper and lower intestinal tract.  This can, not only prevent seepage of toxins, but helps the healing process of the thin, porous intestinal walls as well as aids in evacuation.
