What an awesome weekend here in Indiana.
I did a lot of gardening and was amazed again by all the white "sap" or latex that oozes out of lettuce when you break off the leaves.
So Rebecca and I made a GardenCast to tell about the interesting sedative effects that lettuce chemicals contain. My searches online kept coming up with content about "Lettuce Opium".
The Hopi tribe used to actually dry and smoke the sap before sleep to induce more lucid dream states.
But you can use the power of this amazing chemical in lettuce to calm your nerves and heal your body in the process.
This alkaloid compound also helps to block substance-P, which is the chemical that transmits the message of pain to your brain. (I didn't mention that on the video).
But there's lots more to learn, so join us in our back yard garden for a short but very important lesson!
See you there!
P.S. I also talked a bit about magnesium, "earthing", and meditation to be sure to check it out and let me know what you think in the comments below!
