Bermuda grass a reliable saviour
“OUR PERCEPTION OF WEEDS is just really a cultural perception. There’s no particular reason why many of these plants are called weeds except they are kind of growing in places that we don’t necessarily want them to grow.”
– The value of weeds Landscape architect, David Seiter
ON SATURDAY, I felt relaxed as I drove behind the coaches escorted by the outriders of the Royal Barbados Police Force. I viewed the occasion as a spiritual journey where I had the opportunity to contemplate, pray relentlessly and connect with Mother Nature.
I reflected on Mother Mary and the rosary and all the Holy implements that I have received as I strongly believe we must embrace our spiritual journey. Hence, the Fatima Pilgrimage, organised by the church through Father Vibert Stephens and his team presented this opportunity.
In the words of the youth, “the pilgrimage was the bomb”. I was even taught a new language. However, what made my day more exciting was the opportunity the Holy Spirit took to minister to me about silent doctors. I was inspired to reinforce to readers the need to stop destroying our herbal kingdom with harmful chemicals. As Barbadians and people
of a vibrant landscape, we must embrace all the medicinal plants that surround our homes and businesses and stop calling them weeds. It is time to understand these medicinal herbs and see them as economic saviours. If I did not “wise-up” I would not have benefited economically like my counterparts in the United Kingdom. In essence: “Stop spraying every grass you see around de place.”
Cynodon dactylon linn
One of the so-called weeds that we should embrace is Cynodon dactylon linn. It is also known by many names such as creeping fingers, Florida grass, dub grass or couch grass. This grass, often mowed and discarded as useless lawn grass, is used in other places to treat toothaches, acidity, anaemia, warts, headaches, cancer, inflammatory conditions, haemorrhoids, epilepsy and kidney stones. It can enhance the immune system. Google https://www.
Finally, in many recent researches, it has been proved that Cynodon dactylon has a hypoglycaemic effect, thus is helpful in controlling blood sugar levels and reduces fatigue. Bermuda grass helps prevention of disorders and conditions associated with diabetes.
It can treat more than 25 disorders.
Bermuda grass is crème de la crème and a reliable economic saviour.
