So what is plant medicine really? Plant medicine comes from herbs grown in the wild. They have been used for many years to heal the body. Our ancestors knew of the healing power of plants and the many benefits of using them.

Many herbs are known for their natural healing properties. They heal our bodies while giving us nutrients at the same time. It’s natural, not chemically manufactured. Many drugs on the market today try to mimic what herbs do, they can’t very well sell an herb as a drug, because we can find it growing out in the wild for free.

The big drug companies can’t make money off that, could they?

Our Amazing Body Heals Itself

Our body is amazing and is always repairing itself when we get sick or hurt. When we eat food, we are giving nutrients to our bodies to use to nourish and help heal us. Herbs are just like a superfood, growing out in the wild for a reason. We might have some growing in our front yard if we take a look.

When we eat or use the herbal remedy. It starts working to heal us from the inside out right away. We will then continue using it until we are better or the issue is gone. It’s rather fascinating when you think about it.

It’s just like eating an apple for our health. Our bodies take that fruit and use it where it needs it to go. Some herbs are good for many things. So, we don’t need to be an expert in herbal medicine.

Plants That Heal

Just by using a handful of herbs, we can heal many things in our body.

Plant medicine of herbs fights off infection when we need it. They can help build up our immune system when we start feeling like we’re getting a cold. Herbs are anti-bacteria fighters and antiseptic and help us with our digestive system.

Herbs also can be a laxative when we feel constipated. Clear up our head when those spring and summer flowers start to bloom and make our heads stuffy.

They can help us relax and get a good night’s sleep or just calm down when we’re stressed out.

Herbs are amazing they complement our bodies perfectly. Those two, working together perfectly, like old friends.  And have no ill effects on our bodies like pharmaceutical drugs.

What Our Body Is Telling Us

Our bodies are talking to us when we start to feel ill. And telling us to take action, that our body is missing something it needs. It’s will give us a sign, like our throat, will get itchy. It’s saying, that we are getting a cold. And it wants some nutrition to help heal that itchy throat.

When we take herbal medicine. Like a tablespoon of elderberry syrup. Then our body will take that syrup and heal that itchy throat.

It’s truly amazing. Over the counter medicine just masks the problem, when that man-made medicine wears off, we’re still sick. With plant medicine, we are taking nutrients in our body that is helping to heal our body, not just numbing the feeling in our itchy throat until later.
