What Are Medicinal Herbs?
You hear everyone talking about herbs, but you may not know exactly what they can be used for. So if you ever asked yourself “what are herbs” then you’re about to discover a huge body of knowledge of the power of herbs. Herbs can be used as culinary herbs (herbs used to flavor foods), ornamental herbs (herbs used to make your home or garden look beautiful) or what we focus on here Medicinal Herbs (healing herbs used to heal or help your body get relief from an illness, or improve physical or mental performance.)
There is a Herbal Solution for just about every problem you face in life. there are Cancer Herbs, Diabetes Herbs, Arthritis Herbs, Anxiety Herbs, Depression Herbs, Insomnia Herbs as well as Herbs for Natural Fitness. You will find the best healing herbs to help your body perform at an optimum level and have you look and feel your best as well.
Herb Medicines are a construct of nature and/or God if you will. Actually Herbal Medicines are (and have always been) the basis for modern medicine. The only difference is that “modern medicine” extracts the “active ingredient” and discards the rest of the plant. Deepak Chopra a Harvard trained Medical Doctor as well as an Ayurvedic Healer, says that is like “taking some knowledge, but discarding the wisdom” of a living plant.
I began working with herbal remedies when modern medicine left me flat and did not have the answers to my personal health concerns at the time. I began studying modern medicine, but disagreed with the theory of endless treating, but never healing or curing anyone! I knew there was a better method and I discovered natural medicine (also called holistic medicine, alternative medicine, complementary medicine or integrative medicine).
I just refer to the whole area as holistic medicine, because it is not really alternative, as it’s the original medicine used for thousands of years. Holistic refers to the “whole” and seeks to bring the whole person back to a state of homeostasis or optimum balance. In that state peak health is achieved.
Holistic medicine includes Homeopathic Medicine, Herbal Remedies, Chiropractic, Naturopathic, as well as many natural healing therapies and technologies. I was personally inspired by Dr. John R. Christopher, Dr. Richard Schulze, and David Wolfe into the fascinating world of herb remedies.
I sure you’ll find just what you need on this site to help your body become balanced, energetic and in optimal health. Nature has an answer for every thing this world brings your way. Even the mainstream medical schools like Stanford University have seen and tested many natural herbal remedies for various conditions. Watch this presentation to see how holistic herbs can help you heal naturally from almost any condition you are facing:
Dr. John R. Christopher instituted the renaissance of herbal medicines in the 1900’s and he created the “incurables” program that he used to treat and cure many patients that traditional doctors could no longer help. Anyone fortunate enough to see him and follow his directions usually had miraculous recoveries from diseases and conditions that medical science said was “not curable.” Here is an original presentation by Dr. Christopher on how to use herbs to heal:

Herbal Remedies work well for children, adults and seniors. They have far fewer side-effects than prescription medicines and are much safer when used as directed. Try and get them as organic and wildcrafted if you can find them, as they will be much more effective and not have any chemical residues on them, like on non-organic varieties. You can even find organic vitamins and supplements online as well.
The natural herbal remedies that work for you, can be a godsend for your pet as well!
