In this modern age, there are few things as important as managing our health in the most healing and beneficial way possible. The problem arises when we flush chemical, manmade antibiotics into our bodies to try to get rid of infections and other problematic issues our bodies face.
"short and to the point!"
The idea of prehistoric medicine is a thought-provoking subject. What kinds of plants did people, before modern medicine was around to lean on, use to cure themselves and fight through illness? While it is true that our lifespan on average has increased over the years with newly emerging technology, the fact remains that there are times when nature's cures may be a lot more beneficial to us.
"I love how this brings prehistoric plants back!"
I am tired of relying on pharmaceuticals and chemicals to deal with every day common illness, from a cold to a headache to high blood pressure. Every medication we use, no matter how common or well-researched, comes with intended and unintended effects. Some of these effects, such as the intended effects, are desired, like pain relief when taking pain relief medication. The problem is the unintended effects these medications cause in the body.
The world is full of people who just take medicine at every minute sign of sickness. Doctors prescribe antibiotics after five-minute checkups because their patients' symptoms could possibly need antibiotics for treatment. Aspirin has become a regular part of most people's diets: one in the morning, one at night. And if you are feeling a little lively that day, maybe you'll take another at lunch.
"I didn't know that there were so many plants!"
There is endless wisdom in the medicinal practices of ancient civilizations. People who didn't have the opportunity to rely on modern technology were not capable of the same chances at longevity and health that we are in modern times. However, it is important to remember that the drugs we are using now are still in their infancy, and may come with more problems than solutions in some cases.
"So many easy to find herbs, multitudes of uses!"
Essential oils have been known for centuries to help people with their common health problems and beauty needs. They are a reliable and natural way to bring a vibrant glow of health and beauty to our bodies and help us to deal with our problems. They are even known to help problems like insomnia, which is mostly a psychological issue.
In this modern age, there are few things as important as managing our health in the most healing and beneficial way possible. The problem arises when we flush chemical, man-made antibiotics into our bodies to try and get rid of infections and other problematic issues our bodies face. If we don't take care of ourselves and take a lot of preventative measures, we have to resort to high-functioning chemicals that not only kill the bad bacteria in our bodies, but also the good bacteria that helps us to stay healthy.
Buddhism is general not considered a religion by its Abrahamic counterparts because of its spiritual and individual nature, rather than following a strict deity. Even the name Buddhism doesn't mean that they really pray to Buddha, but rather try to emulate the ways of Buddha - the man that reached enlightenment. In fact, the world Budhi means to have awaken which in Buddhism means to reach enlightenment.
"Buddhism is something I am going to try!"
Every day, more and more Americans make unhealthy decisions that cause their health to falter. Even those who try to live a healthy life have no choice but to suffer from the additives and unhealthy processed nature of food today. The best thing you can do for yourself however is to learn how to prevent illness before it starts, and doing so has never been easier than by learning which plants are the best natural cures - things that have proven tried and true over the centuries.
"definitely will use daily with 5 kids!"
Why is ancient medicine the best medicine? Simply because it's been around for so long. Most drugs that your doctor will prescribe are produced in a lab and sold by large drug companies. Of course, these drugs have their place and do save some a lot of people from death or chronic illness. However, what is concerning is that so many ailments can be healed and so many symptoms can be eased by merely checking out what is already in your spice cabinet.
"Herbal plants are so beneficial!"
In the past many people considered herbal remedies to be folklore, old wives' tales, and overall ineffective remedies. We became reliant on medication for everything and less focused on the effects of the chemicals we were putting in our bodies. Maybe it can be attributed to the influx of international information that is now readily available through the Internet; maybe it can be attributed to the diversity that the United States is now enjoying due to modern immigration, or maybe it is more of a need to simplify.
"I love natrual cures!"
I am tired of relying on pharmaceuticals and chemicals to deal with everyday common illnesses, from a cold to a headache to high blood pressure. Every medication we use, no matter how common or well researched, comes with intended and unintended effects. Some of these, such as the intended effects, are desired, like pain relief when taking pain relief medication. The problem is the unintended effects these medications cause in the body.
