Plants have been used for thousands of years across every continent as medicine. But with the development of modern technology a lot of people have abandoned herbal medicine in favor of modern chemical medicine. Many people believe that herbal medicine ‘doesn’t work,’ ‘takes too long,’ or ‘is dangerous.’ While Modern medicine are ‘advanced,’ ‘dependable,’ and ‘have been tested properly.’
This couldn’t be further from the truth! Research shows that side effects from modern medicine can cause you more harm than the illness itself!
Herbal medicine is focused on treating the whole person while modern medicine is more focused on the disease.
Prevention is a key component in Herbal Medicine. Instead of waiting until you get sick to be healthy focus more on an overall healthy lifestyle.
The amazing thing is that we have the power to prevent many illnesses from occurring just by the daily choices we make.
Stay tuned for some healthy plant suggestions to incorporate into your diet!
