Ashitaba - Tomorrow's Leaf

This page contains articles and links to articles about Ashitaba - a miracle herb that I personally grow in my little garden at home.

HISTORY:
Tomorrow's Leaf was discovered in Hachijo Island (Japan). The plant grows richly in great abundance. Once you pick one today, tomorrow you will see it start to grow a new life. An 80-year old medical doctor who was suffering in his last stage of lung cancer found this plant during his trip to Hachijo Island. He became curious with the leaf until he picked some, ate it and noticed that the leaf gave him great improvement in his health until he was finally cured.

He did deep research and discovered that the leaf has abundant organic elements. He wrote all the data of his research including his experience with Tomorrow Leaf. He found out also the value of the leaf – as herbal medicine, that can cure a lot of other illness. It is also being used in different varieties of daily food preparations.

INDICATION:
Tomorrow's Leaf is considered effective in treating the following disorders:
Lungs / Cough / Asthma / Disgestive System / Intestine / Kidney / Kidney Stones / Urinary Tract Bleeding / Liver / Gall Bladder / Hepatitis / Gall Bladder Stones / Help Suppress Growth of Cancer Cells / Hemmoroids / Constipation / Diarrhea / Vomitting / Blood Poisoning / Septicemia / Fertility Problems / More Balanced Blood Cells / Help in Recovery of Bone Injuries / External Wounds / Skin Allergy / Rheumatism / High Cholesterol Levels / High-Low Blood Pressure / Diabetes.

PREPARATION:
Prevention:
Option 1: use 1 or 2 fresh leaves, wash with salt water, rinse with clean water, chew the leaves and drink water
Option 2: use 1 or 2 fresh leaves, wash with salt water, rinse with clean water, cut in small pieces, add to fruit juice. Drink a cup of it 1 to 2 times a day

  13. Hello EVERYONE.

    Hope you can help me out here (e-mail me at mvtuazon@yahoo.com).

    I Googled the term "ashitaba" to see how it looks like.

    I'm a bit confused at it showed me at least 3 different kinds of plants ... different shapes of leaves and actual plant appearance.

    1) One plant has a somewhat elongated leaf;
    2) Another plant has leaves looking like celery;
    3) some others i can't even describe;

    Question is ... what is the real ashitaba plant ... don't want to eat something that is not ... or even worse ... poisonous! Here's the link where I saw the pictures ...

  27. Great post about ashitaba though I figure from the picture posted that these plants featured are actually gynura procumbens. For the real ashitaba from Japan, please share your thoughts when you spare some time reading my articles at www.ashitabaplant.com
