poplar

This tree grows almost everywhere, up to 90 ft. tall (30m). When sticky little yellow-brown flower buds start popping out on the tree, (look like rice) take the bud, grind it up into a powder, mix into water and drink. It contains all the vitamins and minerals your body needs. If you feel depleted or like your body is lacking something, take this, it makes a really good nutritional supplement. Bud tea used for cough and lung problems. Bud preparations are used for everything from hemorrhoids to headaches. Inner bark tea used for vitamins, cleaning blood and overall health. Peel off the outer bark, revealing the lightcolored slimy inner bark. Eat it raw or slice it into thin strips and eat it like pasta when boiled in water. FOR PARASITES- take the inner bark, cut it into small pieces, dry it, grind it into a powder, and take it with a bit of fat, oil or butter and swallow. This shakes up the parasites so much you might see worms coming out of your butt alive. It's toxic to the worms but not to humans. The poplar/ aspen tree is considered a weed tree. It is so resilient, if you cut down the tree, another one will grow out of the stump. If you take a branch and stick it into the ground, it will grow a tree !
