Let Food Be Thy Medicine?
What Are Medicinal Herbs?
Did you know that most all modern medicines originally came from natural plant sources called Medicinal Herbs? Shamanic cultures all over the world have been using plants as medicine for thousands of years successfully. Our current medical model began using natural plant sources as the basis for all their medications.
Yup, that’s how it all started. Unfortunately for all of us that’s not the way it works anymore. Most prescription medicines that you get from your doctor are made in laboratories using chemical compounds instead. They are made up of an “active” ingredient that is supposed to be a magic bullet to take care of what ever symptom we are experiencing.
Now that is all fine and dandy, except that they frequently lead to taking even more medicines to get rid of the harmful side effects of the medicine you were prescribed. Don’t get me wrong, they can be a Godsend in emergency situations and can even save your life. They are just not good for chronic conditions or long-term usage.
Healing Herbs and Flowers
Very commonly the side effects of the chemical medicines are far worse than the symptoms you were looking to get relief from, and many times even fatal! You can grow your own medicine in your own garden, watch this video showing you how to use flowers as natural medicine:
Make sure you use Distilled Water to make any herbal or plant medicines, as it is an “empty water” that will draw the nutrients into itself! Plants have an inner wisdom to them and their medicine works best when taken together as a whole, not just the isolated active chemical. As Dr. Deepak Chopra says “Modern medicine takes some knowledge from plants, but throws away the wisdom in it.”
In fact, Hippocrates, who is the father of holistic medicine said “Let Food be thy Medicine, and Medicine be thy Food.” All medical doctors today still take his oath to “First, do no Harm,” and I’m sure we can all agree that they pay no attention to what Hippocrates said, or to the oath they currently take, as traditional medicine is now “first do harm.”
Most modern medicines kill healthy and unhealthy cells alike. In modern cancer treatments they use Chemo, Radiation and Surgery as their first line of defense. Chemotherapy and Radiation actually kill healthy cells and Cause Cancer! If you are dealing with cancer then you might want to check out our page on Herbs for Cancer before you get another treatment.
Invasive techniques and medicines are not the best way to heal your body. Your body is “on your team” and you should work with it and give it what it wants to heal itself, that’s what it’s been made to do.

Your best bet for keeping yourself youthful and healthy over the long haul (and yes, we will all get there eventually) is to eat nutritious plant foods, preferably organic or wild crafted (found out in the wild in an untouched and unsprayed with chemicals) form. They are full of life and have a very high vibration (as tested under a darkfield microscope or Kirlian photography). Don’t eat GMO Foods, as they have viruses and pesticides in them inside and out!
Is Organic Better?
Organic Herbs, Vegetables and Fruits are so rich in many vitamins and minerals that are absent in conventional produce and herbs found in your local supermarket. Organic is far superior in nutrition and will give your body energy, not rob it from you. You can even have healthy organic foods delivered to your home from Amazon home delivery service in a lot of areas now. If you are not getting them organic, then you are getting them with pesticides like glyphosates that cause cancer and leaky gut syndrome.
If you’ve been eating them for a while you should do a pesticide detox and get them out of your body before they cause you serious problems! You can do that by taking the following natural supplements:
- PectaClear – Removes environmental toxins like pesticides like Glyphosates
- Zeolite Powder (Natural heavy metal detoxifier, anti-viral & cancer killer)
- Bentonite Clay (Food grade clay, taken internally to help flush toxins from digestive tract and intestines.
Even taking a standard multi-vitamin will not do the trick because most of them are also chemically formed and are not only hard on your body but they don’t even work! They actually rob your body of nutrients because they can’t be assimilated by your body, because your body doesn’t recognize them as anything, and will create an immune response to these “invaders.”
I take vitamins because our soils have been depleted of minerals and are vitamin deficient. If you do take vitamins try and get the Best Organic Vitamins! These are all Non-GMO, and mostly Certified Organic Vitamins and Supplements that are from plant based whole foods, not toxic chemicals your body has to detox later. You want to take vitamins to help you look and feel your best, not poison your brain and organs.
I use them every weekday, and take the weekends off to let my body flush any excess it doesn’t need. I have more energy and strength than most people half my age, and am often mistaken for being 10-15 years younger.
Organic Food Stores
Organic Food Stores are increasing by the day now, as people are discovering the benefits of organic food over processed, pesticide filled and GMO Foods. You can find plenty of stores that carry organic foods, herbs and supplements. Trader Joe’s, Sprouts, Aldi are good places to go to. Whole foods used to be but they are now mixing in too many GMO foods to be safe.
Go to your local farmers market or search for a local farmer’s market near you! There is no comparison when you taste real organic food and produce. There is a big difference that you can taste. No chemical residue aftertaste or stomach problems later. You can even just learn to grow your own organic food! And you get the benefit of all the vitamins and minerals present that will clean, detox and energize your body.
You will feel like your tank is filled with the best premium octane fuel and you will feel so much better. Not only will you feel better but your skin and hair will show their natural radiance and you’ll look years younger again. If you choose a medicine for a specific condition you are experiencing, try natural plant source ones first (like herbal remedies or homeopathic medicine).
