Herbal Medicine is Nature’s original medicine. There is evidence that shows that Neanderthals had a strong knowledge of which plants to use for medicinal purposes, including herbs and plants to relieve pain, as antibiotics and to support digestion. This supports the understanding that humans and animals have lived in harmony with the natural world in a synergistic, supportive way for as far back as we can trace.
Herbs are easy to absorb, particularly whole herbs, as they contain all the components and constituents that we, the human organism, need in order for micronutrients to cross cellular barriers, and be used to maintain optimal health.
Due to their natural chemical simplicity their constituents are easily recognised by the human body. This makes them very safe when used correctly and very effective when applied for the right condition.
Herbs contain a vast array of vitamins, minerals and active constituents that will quickly help you to gain momentum in healing and restore balance in your body.
They can be applied via a variety of methods, including teas, herbal formulas, poultices and in oils and balms.
The dose and herbs used can be adjusted to suit every age and stage, and they can be used in conjunction with other medicines or in many cases, in place of other medicines.
Science is constantly discovering new and valuable information about herbs, they do this through studies, comparing their use against known pharmaceutical medicines for particular illnesses, and we do this through looking at the historical use of herbs. Such as the neanderthal, using chamomile and yarrow to help their digestion.
I prefer the use of herbs in healing protocols as opposed to endless amounts of supplements, there may still be the need for a higher dose of a particular nutrient in supplement form, but how many times have you ended up with a cupboard full of supplements that you haven't taken and are not able to remember what they were for.
Herbal Formulas give us the ability to be able to give you a medicine and nutritional supplement in one easy to take form.
