POWERFUL MEDICINAL HERBS FOR REJUVENATING AND HEALING THE BODY AND MIND


There is great wisdom in illness and disease.  When we leave behind the simplistic mainstream medical notion that our bodies are highly vulnerable to germs, bacteria and viruses and begin to understand that we only get sick when our body & mind are out of balance/overloaded with TOXINS. We then can begin to realize the true causes of our illness and treat them appropriately.  Seeing illness and disease from this perspective allows us to truly heal them at the deepest levels. 

HERBS BRING THE BODY, MIND AND EMOTIONS BACK INTO BALANCE

EM
Quite simply, medicinal herbs are a very powerful way to bring your mind, body and EMOTIONS back into balance.


Herbs, which have been used safely and effectively for thousands of years, aid the body in restoring balance and healing the underlying causes that lead to the imbalance and created the illness or disease we are experiencing in the first place.  Pharmaceutical medicines, on the other hand, do not actually treat the cause of the disease, merely the symptom, WHICH CREATE MORE SYMPTOMS due to the toxic level of all Drugs.

The knowledge of the power of herbal medicines is just beginning to resurface in the West.  There are tens of thousands of incredible plants that can help us heal literally any problem we are facing.  Best of all, they do not solely work on the physical level.  Herbs are truly Wholistic remedies that work on every level of the body and mind.

In Traditional Chinese medicine, herbs were classified by their effects on the whole person — the mind, body emotions and logevity.  In the West we have been taught to think of ourselves only in the physical sense and we approach medicine in the same way.  However, a person is existing on many levels simultaneously — the mental, physical, and emotional planes — and if we are to truly treat disease, illness and imbalance, all of these levels must be considered.  This is one of the biggest failings of modern invasive, pharmaceutically-based medicine — to not consider the whole person.

However, this is the incredible beauty of herbal medicine…  Although we may not always be aware to realize it, all herbs work on every level of our being — mental, physical, & emotional.

  Herbs are Wholistic remedies for healing and thus are able to truly treat the root cause of illness, which is frequently DUE TO A LACK OF knowledge and insight OF OUR CREATORS AMAZING FOODS FOR LIFE.
