HERBS ARE NATURE’S MEDICINE . . . . . and should be YOURS

Although “herbology” may not be an active term in your vocabulary, it is a reality in your life.  The mustard on your table and many of the spices in your kitchen come from herbs; most of the vegetables in your salad are herbs, and if you have a yard/garden, many of the plants growing there (whether by your or their own design) are also herbs.

Herbs act very similar to our foods, in that they provide our body with nutrients and other components that enhance organ functions. The same way we take food to strengthen bones, build our blood, feed our nervous system, reduce cholesterol, etc., herbs are used in the same way to feed, rejuvenate and regenerate our organs.  Here are some herbs for specific organ systems, which when taken as tonics can help restore and maintain your energy balance: for the Nerves: skullcap, lobelia, valerian, fu ling; for the Liver: dandelion, sassafras, cascara; for the Gall Bladder: oregon grape root, wild yam, parsley, golden seal, and for the Urinary System: sok day, fu ling, gravel root, uva ursi.  Herbs also have specific energies, tastes and directions (rising energy; lowering energy; contracting energy and disbursing energy) that affect a healing change.

Different parts of the herb heal different parts of our bodies. In fact, the physical, mental and spiritual embodiment of man is perfectly reflected the root, stem and leaves of a plant, in that all the chemical constituents of which our bodies are composed are contained in the roots, barks, leaves, flowers and fruits of herbs, and are put here by the Divine Creator to serve us.  We just need to ask them, harvest them, prepare and take them, and live more in accord with the cycles of the universe, our seasons, days, and our bodies’ own three 8-hour cycles.

Most times we forget that “herbs are nature’s medicine,” though we know the source of most pharmaceuticals come from herbs.  Because man-made drugs are an adulteration of the source herb, they do not contain any life force and therefore are unable to heal, restore balance or vitality!  (Healing is the natural process by which the cells in the body regenerate and repairs itself to reduce damaged or necrotic tissue – which herbs facilitate).  Although modern medical drugs greatly influence and improve our states of health, they do not possess the same holistic healing qualities as herbal preparations. A single molecule pulled out of a plant manufactured in a laboratory does not have the same healing properties of the whole plant. In some cases, another vitamin or enzyme that occurs naturally in the plant is essential to trigger its action; or conversely, may have an adverse effect when isolated or “taken out of context of the whole!”  A plant, berry or piece of bark may contain up to 20 chemical constituents which interact to produce a healing effect and when the whole herb is used all the other chemical constituents that naturally occur within the herb acts as ‘buffers’ and ‘catalysts’ amongst themselves, bringing a natural safe synergy to the whole herb – a safeguard that can’t be reproduced in the isolated chemical that we pop as a pill.

In taking this course, you will learn how to select the right herbs for the right symptoms in the right proportions to make safe and effective formulas right in your kitchen.
