HERBALISM

What is Herbalism? The use of plants and plant extracts to stimulate and restore the body’s natural healing ability is known by a variety of names: Herbology Medicine, Herbalism, Phytotherapy, Botanical Medicine, etc.  Herbs help 3 important functions: digestion and assimilation, sleep, and elimination. Through Herbalism, plants & herbs serve as an alternative health medicine to prevent & treat illness.  An easy way to bring healthy, fresh foods and nutrients into your daily life is by growing an herb garden; organic herbs and plants should be an essential part of your diet.     For thousands of years, plants have been a primary source of alternative health solutions and therapeutic medication for cultures all over the world. Sumerians in the middle east utilized herbology therapies over 5,000 years ago, ancient Egyptians realized the benefit of herbology treatments by 3500 b.c. and the Chinese by 2500 b.c. Ayurveda medicine utilizes many herbs and plants dating back to 2000 b.c.  By the middle ages, herbology therapies continued to be used and The Canon of Medicine was published in 1025 a.d. listing over 800 plants, minerals and drugs.  With the invention of printing by the 15 century, many herbal healing publications were created. The first herbology medicine publication in English was the Grete Herball in 1526. By the 18th century, herbalism had grown with herbology medicine publications in Latin, Greek and English.     In the modern era, according to the World Health Organization, it is estimated that 80% of the world’s population uses herbology treatments as alternative health solutions.  Herbology medicines are grown throughout the world at a fraction of the cost of modern pharmaceuticals.  Herbal remedies are very common throughout Europe and are sold alongside prescription drugs.  Traditional Chinese medicine is long known for using herbology therapies and according to thinkquest.org, herbology medicine has been chosen by the World Health Organization for worldwide propagation to meet the health care needs of the 21st century. The modern healthy lifestyles of today are learning to include herbology therapies and other alternative health practices as part of a holistic approach to life.   We hope you have learned more about Herbology as an alternative health medicine.

Editor´s Note from Milan Perry: Our home, "the haven from the wind" the one place we can go and shut out the world. Unknowingly, we often let in unwanted germs which cause harm to our immune system in the process.

After all our skin is the largest organ on our body, so whatever touches it can be absorbed into it. Protect your temple!

Green tea continues to impress medical scientists. One of the latest result of trails conducted at the Mayo Clinic shows the effectiveness of Green Tea in treating chronic lymphocytic anemia.

Passion is such a pleasure in our lives! Many people assume that sex comes naturally. But it is well worth spending time investigating ways to enhance The Art of Love...

 

Editor´s Note from Milan Perry:  Brigitte has touched upon a subject that some people based upon culture or education consider the subject of sex as being taboo. The author makes a connection between mind and body by showing the link between the two which are inter-connected. If there is a decrease in the ability of one body system to function, it is because of a deficiency elsewhere in the body. Diet is always the first culprit to examine and make improvements. Herbs and Essential-Oils can be added into your lifestyle to enhance and enrich every sensory that needs igniting.

HERBALISM

The Gift of Plants:

by Suki Roth

In our quest to hold herbalism up to the scientific eye, trying to mold it into a clinical science, we have lost touch with the very essence of herbal healing. It is not the clinically tested, standardized medicinal constituents of the plants we need for vitality and balance, but their more obscure, subtle properties. They have an innate ability to offer us the soothing relaxation, gladdening, quieting, emotional defrosting and grounding our over stimulated minds and tired spirits are so much in need of right now.
