Think of our ancestors hunting and gathering, all they had was what they found in nature. Our relationship to plants has changed. We admire them for their beauty and not their function. Very similar to how we view nearly everything in our culture now. Beauty is the prime directive, but what is that really worth?
With plants and herbs there is so much more than meets the eye. The medicinal benefits of the world around us and waiting for us to dig deeper.
For example, a really obvious healthy herb known to herbalists is Dandelion Root. This bitter little weed is remarkable for your liver and kidneys. Just the detox you need to keep these essential organs happy and functioning to their best capacity.
Another common herb to try for daily detox is ginger, it is probably the best thing for a disgruntled stomach. But the list of issues that ginger aids with is extensive, and the best thing about all herbs is that they affect everyone differently so it is crucial to experiment for yourself and personalize your prescription. One size does not fit all. This is not Valley of the Dolls.
To sum up, herbs are nature's gift to humans and they carry all we need within them. So before reaching for a drug you cannot pronounce, reach for your phone and google herbal remedies for your symptom.
