Herbs calm the mind and heal the body
There was a time when most people knew how to use the plants that surrounded them to heal life's common ailments. When it came to problems they could not deal with themselves, they turned to a village herbalist. Those good ol' days may not be so far gone.
Herbalism has made a resurgence in recent years. People have finally come to realize that most of western pharmaceuticals originally came from plants. Why pay exorbitant prices when, with a little knowledge, you can learn to heal yourself and those around you with the nourishing benefits of plants.
Herbs work differently than western medicines. Western medicines act upon your body. They make it do something. The resulting side effects can sometimes be as bad, or worse, than the original illenss. Herbs work differntly in that they support your body's innate ability to heal itself. Because plants contain so many buffering phytochemicals, they are much less apt to cause side effects.
