oak and acorns

Big strong tree up to 120 ft(40m). Fruit is acorn. The bark, leaves, acorns and branches have tannic acid, which is a very strong anti-viral, anti-tumor but too strong in its natural state for normal human consumption (read on for what to do) When used as a tea, its used to get rid of parasites, helps them come out of the blood, cells, tissues and body. The typical method is to collect acorns, sort out the good from the bad, dry them in the sun for a day or two, take the shells off, then grind them into powder and leach to get rid of the tannins (soak, then change water and soak again). To use as a parasite expeller, grind up the entire acorn, shell and everything with a mortar and pestle into a powder. Oak is an astringent (stops bleeding). Inner bark tea used for diarrhea, dysentery, hemorrhoids, poison ivy rash, cancer, tooth cavities, burns, skin diseases, inflammation. Use the tea as a skin wash to help clear up problems
