What Are Medicinal Herbs?

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.

Benefits of Medicinal Herbs

What are the Benefits of Medicinal Herbs? The side effects of 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, using Healing Herbs and Spices as safe and effective natural medicine. You can make sure it's grown organically without chemical fertilizers and pesticides that weaken your herbal remedies and can make you ill. These natural herb and spice plants can be used from culinary purposes (making food taste better) to making powerful herbal concoctions that can save your life and keep you out of your doctors office. Here is how you can use healing herbs for medicinal purposes and improve many areas of your health and life naturally:

  • Relieve chronic conditions like arthritis, fibromyalgia, IBS and Constipation
  • Reduce cancerous tumors and expedite healing (relieve side effects of medical cancer treatment)
  • Boost you immune system (prevent and heal quicker from infections)
  • Improve your cardiovascular health and performance
  • Emergency first aid for many conditions
  • Relieve asthma and allergy symptoms without harmful side effects
  • Balance heart conditions like blood pressure and blood sugar levels naturally
  • Balance your hormone levels, restore them to optimum levels
  • Improve your hair, nails and skin texture and strength
  • Improve your vision, hearing, taste and smell
  • Sleep better with more restful REM sleep
  • Improve energy levels, stamina and endurance
  • Improve mood and boost your memory
  • Look and feel like your youthful self
  • Plus heal from most every condition (there is a natural remedy for every ailment under the sun)

The best way to take herbal medicines is in a blend as opposed to isolated herbs. You can use them like that but extracts and synchronistic herbs can boost their effectiveness and safety many times over. Also make sure to 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.” These natural herbal remedies have been used safely and successfully since the dawn of time, unlike modern medicine which is only about a century old, and with many harmful side effects and problems. 


best medicine is food


Let Food By Thy Medicine

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 make profit.” If you eat healthy vibrant real foods then you won't need to see a doctor, except for injury in most cases.


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! In fact most people die from the treatment of cancer, not 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.

Food as Medicine

Food as Medicine is one of the best prescriptions for optimum wellness and peak health for the long-term. 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.


You can find specific foods that are good to help you prevent the most common diseases and conditions like diabetes, liver disease, heart disease, arthritis, gout, chronic inflammation, IBS and digestive problems to name a few. Natural organic foods 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 Food Better for You?

Is Organic Food Better for You? 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 tell if a food has given you energy or stole energy from you by the way you feel after eating it. If you feel drained or sleepy, guess what, it took more energy to digest it than it gave you.


If you feel great and energized after eating than your food gave you an abundance of energy and nutrition. Eat organic foods for a while and see how you now look and feel. Your skin tone will improve, your hair will improve, your sleeping habits will improve, your life will improve. It's not rocket science, it's just plain simple common sense. What you put into your body is what your body's cells will be made of. Put junk foods, your body will respond like junk. Eat smaller portions but better quality and you will expand your quantity and quality of life.

Where to Buy Organic

Where to Buy Organic. 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. I highly recommend starting any health program (or to boost one in progress) doing a complete GI (gastro-intestinal) system detox. It cleanses you so the nutrition you do eat now will be able to be absorbed and not simply flushed down the porcelain altar!


Are GMOs safe


Is GMO Food Safe?

Is GMO Food Safe? GMO foods (genetically modified organisms or genetically engineered foods) are not natural foods. They are created in a laboratory and injected with a virus to allow it to create new DNA or genetic information to spread to newly developing cells. Your body does not recognize these chemicals as food, but as a foreign substance that is toxic to your body. If you are not getting them organic, then you are getting them with pesticides like glyphosates that cause cancer and leaky gut syndrome.


Not only are GMO Foods harmful to your body but they lead directly to cancer, autism, autoimmune conditions, IBS, colitis, Crohn's disease, gluten intolerance “which is really glyphosate intolerance not gluten intolerance” among other illnesses. These toxic glyphosates are even showing up in organic foods due to rainwater and ground water runoff. It's a good idea to do a periodic detox to make sure it is not interfering with your DNA and causing abnormal cells to grow inside of you. For more information see: Glyphosate Toxicity.

How to Detox Glyphosate

How to Detox Glyphosate naturally and safely. To get rid of glyphosate and GMO residues in your body you need to do a Viral Detox, and a Chemical Detox all in one. It flushes your body of these harmful viruses and pesticides that destroy your health and damage your DNA and wipe out your natural immune system. What you don't see can really hurt you. 


Do a seasonal Glyphosate GMO detox can keep these toxins moving out of your body before they cause tissue and organ abnormalities. Your children and even pets can use the same natural detox with smaller amounts. Do the following GMO detox and you will feel so much better because it will flush out these chemicals and viruses that were robbing your body of nutrition and health:

  • EcoDetox (This is a holistic cleanse that is made specifically to flush toxins out of your organs and cells safely and effectively. It is made to detox glyphosates, GMO residues, pesticides, herbicides and fungicides without harmful side effects.)
  • Zeolite Powder (Proven Cancer, Virus, Radiation, Heavy Metal, Chemical, Pesticide and Glyphosate Detox supplement, with exceptional results. Not only detoxes glyphosates, pesticides and GMO’s but also protects your gut and immune system from the damage caused by them. It can also help stop cancers forming, as GMO foods and glyphosate cause cancer.)
  • Detox Foot Pads (Easy to use body detox method that allows you to detox while you sleep! It uses Far Infrared technology, with Organic ingredients including natural Zeolite Powder for a superior detox that is easy to do.)
  • Nano Colloidal Nascent Iodine (Protects your thyroid gland from uptake of pesticides and radiation).

You can use any of the above natural detoxification supplements separately or ideally together at the same time. They will make a difference you can actually feel, while protecting what you don't see against a dozen or more chronic and serious illnesses. It is always good to do a complete detox of all your organ systems before starting a new healing regimen so you are starting clean and can tell which herbal remedy is working best for you. A good place to start is with the complete GI flush. For more information click on the image below or see: Gut Health Kit.
