Last weekend we went out to look for duck flowers and to our surprise, we found a few in bloom. These flowers are highly sought-after for detoxification, as heralded and praised by Honduran herbalist Dr. Sebi, and we are pleased to have them back in stock.
When you order, you will be receiving a DRIED duck flower. Like all our herbal products, flowers are dried before sending, and therefore their size has greatly decreased from when they were in bloom. The active ingredients of the flower, however are still intact. We also have "duck flower powder" which is simply the dried flower ground up into powder". Duck flower leaves and duck leaf powder are in stock as well.
We get questions sometimes about what to expect from taking the duck. First off, it's your responsibility to seek the advice of medical professionals for any heath concerns. All we will say, is like the ingestion of most herbal products, reactions vary,
A lot will depend on your diet at the time. If you are fasting from all food or on a juice fast or strict raw/vegan eating regimen and you ingest "the duck" then your reactions tend to be more pronounced than if you are eating a "regular" diet. . But extreme reactions don't necessarily mean that you aren't detoxing. Some people don’t have any detox symptoms and feel fine. Other people experience different bathroom habits--frequent urination, loose stools and/or constipation. Also gas and/or bloating, strong body odor, swollen lymph nodes, nausea and/or vomiting, mood swings, headaches and fatigue.
I, personally, prefer a gentler cleanse so I take the duck flower powder in small amounts here and there and it provides an edge that's not too extreme, and works for me.
