There are herbs, which are best used in a health issue situation. Others can be used as food and for prevention.

I will share here some of the ones I use on a regular base and start with nettle. I like it because it is a blood cleanser and very nourishing. Nettle cleanses the blood by removing uric acid waste products from the system in using protein building blocks, so they do not pass useless into the system and so relieving strain the organs. Many issues start with the body being overloaded and can show up in symptoms like allergies, acne, eczema, gout, arthritis, rheumatism, urinary problems and more.

The good thing is that we don’t have to wait until we have one of these problems. Nettle being also a nourishing food, can be added several times a week to parrot food. Some of my parrots just love tea. So when I have a nettle tea, they get some of it. The birds, which are not so crazy about tea, get it sprinkled over their fresh food a few times a week. Nettles can also be prepared like spinach or as a yummy soup and shared with your parrots.
