Cymbopogon citratus, Stapf (Lemon grass) is a widely used herb in tropical countries, especially in Southeast Asia. 
This is lemon grass commonly known as mchaichai by Tanzanians. We grow lemon grass at Kelma Farm and Orchard as you can see in this photo.

Lemongrass  contains substances that  relieves pain and swelling, reduce fever, improve levels of sugar and cholesterol in the blood, stimulate the uterus and menstrual flow and have antioxidant properties.

The citric acid content in lemons is remarkably high, aiding in purifying the liver. Consuming lemongrass tea on an empty stomach in the morning assists in getting rid of all the wastes and toxins accumulated in the liver. Lemongrass has antiseptic properties and is known to prevent and treat infections such as ringworm, scabies, athlete's foot, urinary tract infection, sores and other infections that are caused due to anti-fungal and antimicrobial action. 
This is lemon grass thriving at Kelma Farm and Orchard. It's very nice for human consumption and very easy to prepare. It's prepared like 'strong tea' or tea without milk but just water.

To develop intuition, one of the things you can do is paying attention to what you eat. Eat as clean a diet as you can. Eat fresh fruits and vegetables without preservatives, without alcohol, caffeine, dyes and organically grown if possible.

 Adopting a new healthier, lifestyle can involve changing diet to include more fresh fruit and vegetables as well as increasing levels of exercise. Using lots of fresh foods, fruits and vegetables as well as helping to keep the menu buoyant. I don't know if that's the right word, but it keeps a balance of freshness and health. 

Eat food. Eat actual food. I try not to eat anything processed or sugar-free. Don't go where the tide takes you. Build your own ocean. Turn your pressure into power and your anxiety into productivity.
