Bush Medicine
Sorrow looks back! Worry looks around! Faith looks up!


Scaevola Spinescens, (Maroon Bush, Murin Murin, Prickly Fan Flower, Current Bush


This Plant grows in semi arid areas throughout much of Australia except Tasmania and Victoria .  It is a medium sized shrub, 
with stiff upright branches, thin leaves in a long oval shape, which come off the main stem in clusters, with spines which 
make it quite prickly.  The flowers are creamy/white to yellow with petals spread like an open fan.  The flower is followed 
by small purplish berries or currants containing a single seed.    It is important to find the correct bush as many plants can 
be toxic. It is illegal to pick scaevola spinescens without a permit.
 
To make the tea:  Simply soak 50gm potbag in 2-2.5 litres of water for at least 24 hours (in fridge in Summer). leave the tea potbag in until you have used the tea up....  When soaked place the pot of tea/water containing the teapot bag on the stove and bring to the boil.  Simmer for 30 minutes or longer. For a stronger tea leave the pot over the heat just steaming, not boiling until the water content reduces.  An extract can be made in this way for treating skin conditions.  Literally steaming off the water until you end up with a black substance like treacle.  Be very careful at this stage not to burn the pot dry. 
Keep tea potbags dry while in storage.
 
People I know talk of 100ml doses three or more times per day.   Use common sense – if unusual symptoms occur discontinue, or modify the dose.  You may be best to begin with a small dose and gradually increase it.  Taking the tea in dark grape juice makes it more palatable – and grape juice is very good for you too. Some people use it with apple juice or other juices.  I also prefer it hot, so add boiling water to the cold tea to suit.                             Keep regular medical checks with your Doctors.
 
 
Scaevola Spinescens is an Aboriginal bush medicine and has traditionally been used by Aboriginal people
for the treatment of cancer, heart disease, intestinal trouble, urinary problems, kidney trouble and general
illnesses.  It is believed by many to be beneficial in the treatment of cancer.   There are no guarantees,
however I sincerely hope this plant improves the quality of your life. 
Please remember – to use it is your choice!

                   Some Natural steps to health

        The information presented here is intended to guide you in things you can do and use in conjunction with the Maroon Bush Tea. Scaevola spinescens, commonly known as Maroon Bush, Murin Murin, Prickly Fan Flower, Currant Bush and Gurrburu tea is an Aboriginal bush medicine and has traditionally been used by Aboriginal people for the treatment of cancer, heart disease, intestinal trouble, urinary problems, kidney trouble and general illnesses.  It is believed by many to be beneficial in the treatment of cancer.  While there are many success stories it is not a proven cure and no medical trials have been done.
        I have used Maroon Bush tea for some time, and have heard many examples of its benefit for health.
 
        Why is the incidence of cancer increasing?  We live in an imperfect world where we are subjected to environmental hazards at every turn, often with chemicals in the air we breathe from herbicides and pesticides, plus vehicle and industrial pollution. 
        Much of our food is loaded with preservatives, antibiotics, artificial flavours and colours.  Many chemical fertilisers, herbicides and pesticides are used to grow our food?  The influence of these may go right through the food chain - vegetables, fruits, grains, nuts, dairy foods and meats.  Take-aways and fast food are often highly processed foods containing high fat, sugars and food additives.
 
 

Things you can do for your body

Maroon Bush tea.  I have had excellent results using the Maroon bush tea for my health, and there are a large and growing number of people who have used it as an aid in treating cancer. It is an Aboriginal bush medicine and has traditionally been used by Aboriginal people for the treatment of cancer, heart disease, intestinal trouble, urinary problems, kidney trouble and general illnesses.  It is believed by many to be beneficial in the treatment of cancer and may boost the immune system.  While there are many success stories it is not a proven cure and no medical trials have been done, however research shows anti-tumour activity (Dr P. Kerr & Prof. R. Longmore, Curtin Univ. 1991, Dr P. Kerr is now at Charles Sturt University)  Begin with small doses at first and increase it slowly.  Discontinue or modify the dose if you notice any unusual symptoms.        

        Reduce Stress and any negative response to it  The effects of worry, anxiety, fear, pressure and the hectic pace of life are a major contributor to sickness. 
        Adequate Sleep is very important.  Readers Digest, July 2006 page 124 & 125 quote research that suggest adults need between 7 and 9 hours per night, and if you don’t get enough you may compromise your immune system.

Eat healthy and Cancer fighting Foods

Fresh, uncooked fruit and vegetables
Flax Seed Oil - Keep refrigerated.  Do not heat or cook with it, add to salads or foods after they have been cooked.  Flax seeds can also be sprouted and eaten as any other sprout.  (the Cottage Cheese / Flax seed oil diet has been reported to help with fighting cancer, I have a friend who testifies it turned his prostate cancer back to normal).
Olive Oil - Extra Virgin, un-heat processed olive oil.
Avocado, coconut, coconut cream or milk 
Beetroot: This is best raw grated or as an additive to juice.
Pomegranate 
Noni Juice and Goji Juice  
Dark skinned grapes (some people eat the seeds as well)
Grape Juice   
Blue Berries
Other purple skinned foods you can use are, red cabbage, and purple onions.
Garlic 
Brazil nuts: sprouted or soaked– a good source of selenium if grown on soils containing selenium.
Almonds
Apricot kernels have been used as a cancer treatment, however check carefully as they may also cause harm.
Papaya as a food
Use the almost mature green papaw that just turns yellow inside. Preferably use with the skin. You can juice or grate the fruit too and mix with salads or blend into a drink
Lemons 

Foods and things to avoid or to have in moderation
Cooked and processed foods (sugars and refined flours)
Foods high in phosphorus
Heated fats and oils - especially deep fried foods, processed/trans fats in commercial cookies, chips.
Avoid high heat frying especially if heat makes smoke.
Chlorinated water
Smoking and passive smoking should be avoided
Many of us have taken on bad dietary habits and should seek to find ways to correct them.
Alcohol, yes even Alcohol.  In recent years we are hearing reports that Alcohol may actually cause some cancers.
