Alteratives are blood cleansing, and help the body to improve metabolic processes and thus work more efficiently absorbing nutrients, and removing wastes. Examples of herbs include garlic, burdock, echinacea, dandelion, turmeric, holy basil, and yellow dock, plantain, and red clover. Alterative herbs are best to be taken in small doses over a longer period of time, resulting in whole body wellness of organs and systems.
