It is medicine season! Seriously. I am talking about all the goodies popping up from the earth, wild for the most part, that just might serve to heal our woes.
We know that diet is important and we know that laughter is important. Sleep and exercise are also keys for great health. But sometimes, even the strongest and mightiest of us may fall prey to a little bug or perhaps a wound or what have you and we need a little something extra to boost us up and get us through quicker and stronger.
Kind of amazing to think that our medicine could look like this:
This, my lovely herb lovers is where my heart lies with herbal medicine. As I brushed over in the video, I do find it interesting that in mass media there is this weird attitude of peeps being suspect of natural means of healing. Someone even posted a comment on my youtube page asking why I endorse homeopathics (which I don’t do and am not trained in) if it is all just placebo. Then there are the conventional medical types who claim that herbs have no affect on our health, can’t really benefit us but then give lists of herbs to avoid due to potential effects.
My question then is this, if herbal medicine, supplementation, homeopathics, energetic healing, crystals and the like have no real affect (which they do) and only work because of placebo- isn’t that an effect? Isn’t a placebo a measurable benefit that has zero side effects?
Herbs are my supplements of choice. I like them whole, I like them in tea form, I like them as tinctures. You can be sure that the herbs that grow wild are going to be hearty and healing. Take a look around. You’ll be amazed at the fields of medicine that surround us- fluorescent light and prescription free.
Remember how easy it is to make a tincture?
