This is my grandma's recipe. It has to be Italian parsley, she said other parsley might not work. She also strongly insists that the stems are used as well. She told me that the stems are the most effective because they are closer to the earth. Effect on what, you might ask?
My grandma used to make this for herself and me once every 4 months. This is great for cleansing our kidneys. I figured that they might be great for gout too as our kidneys cannot function properly to flush out excess uric acid from our bodies. She warned that this is NOT to be consumed on a daily basis; just once every 4 months.
PS: This is not a miracle tea. Please consult a doctor for your kidney and gout problems.
