Herbal Healing
 

Plants and people share the most essential element of all; the spark of life. This precious thing can neither be measured nor re-created in a laboratory.

Herbs have been used from the time of recorded history for every facet of life - health, healing, energy, creativity, work, love, birth, death, regeneration, survival, and more. Herbs are all encompassing and timeless, as nature itself is infinite and eternal.

Therapeutic herbs have a unique spirit, with wide ranging properties, and far reaching possibilities for medicinal activity. Mankind can look back through thousands of years to herbal medicinal's as a safe, readily available, gentle means of healing. Because the history of herbal healing is so rich, it allows us to see that herbs are perfectly adaptable to today's requirements, with the same focused strength and reliability. We are only beginning to scratch the surface of their forgotten truth.

Many informed men and women today realize the value of herbs as therapies that can noticeably improve their lives, and that they themselves can use safely and easily.

Herbs are concentrated foods, with the ability to address both the symptoms and causes of a problem. As nourishment, herbs can offer the body nutrients it does not always receive, either from poor diet, or environmental deficiencies in the soil and air. As medicine, herbs are essentially body balancers, that work with the body functions, so that it can heal and regulate itself.

Hundreds of herbs are available in several usable forms and at all quality levels. Worldwide communications and improved storage allow us to obtain and use herbs from different countries and different harvests, an advantage ages past did not enjoy.

Herbs in their whole form are not drugs. Do not expect the activity or response of chemical antibiotics or tranquilizers. These agents only treat the symptoms of a problem. Generally, you have to take more and more of a drug to get the same effect.

Herbs work differently.
Herbs are foundation nutrients, working through the glands, nourishing the body's deepest and most basic elements, such as the brain, glands and hormones. Results will seem to take much longer. But this fact only shows how herbs actually work, acting as support to control and reverse the cause of a problem, with more permanent effect.

Even so, some improvement from herbs can usually be felt in three to six days. Chronic or long standing degeneration will, of course, take longer. A traditional rule of thumb is one month of healing for every year of the problem.

Herbs are not addictive, but are powerful nutritional agents. Balance is the key to using herbal nutrients for healing. As with other natural therapies, there is sometimes a "healing crisis" which is also know as the "Law of Cure", and simply means that sometimes you will seem to get worse before you get better.

The body frequently begins to eliminate toxic wastes. There may be some discomfort or weakness as disease poisons are released into the bloodstream to be flushed away. Strength and relief shortly return when this process is over.

Most herbs, as edible plants, are as safe to take as foods. Occasionally a mild allergy type reaction may occur as it might occur to a food. This could happen because herb quality is poor, because it has been adulterated with chemicals in the growing/storing process.

Because of the cleansing ability of herbs, toxins from drugs may come out of the body (ex: rashes) whether from current or previous use.

Herbs work in combination better than singly. There are several reasons for this. Each formula compound contains two to five primary agent herbs that are part of the blend for specific purposes. Since all body parts, and most disease symptoms are interrelated, it is wise to have herbs which can affect each part of the problem.

For example, in a prostate healing formula, there would be herbs to dissolve sediment, anti-inflammatory herbs, tissue toning and strengthening herbs and herbs with anti-bacterial properties.

Herbs work better when combined with a natural foods diet. Everyone can benefit from an herbal formula, but results increase dramatically when fresh foods and whole grains form the diet basis. Subtle healing activity is more effective when it doesn't't have to labor through excess waste material, mucous, or junk food accumulation. In addition, rotating and alternating herbal combinations according to changing health needs allows the body to remain most responsive to their effects.

Interestingly enough, herbs can help counter the problems of "civilization foods". Herbs are rich in minerals and the basic elements missing or diminished in today's quick grow, over sprayed, over fertilized produce. Minerals are a basic element in food assimilation. Herbs simply pave the way for the body to do its own work, by breaking up toxins, cleansing, lubricating, toning and nourishing
