“Everything on the earth has a purpose, every disease an herb to cure it, and every person a mission.”
For many centuries, countries like Iran, Egypt, China and India have been using herbs as medicine for improving mental and physical health. Persians (current day Iran) have been known to have compiled the first records regarding herbal remedies more than 2,000 years ago. France later copied and re-wrote from those compilations during the 17th century due to the effectivenes of the Persian herbal remedies which were found to be more effective that the medieval and archaic medicine of 17th century France. The French re-write was later translated and used by other European countries all the way to present-day knowledge of herbal medicine in the West.
Here are some useful herbs that have been used for their healing and medicinal properties:
Celery Seed: Celery seeds are good for gout and arthritis. The compounds in celery seeds are anti-inflammatory.
Bay Leaf: Bay leafs are good for migraines and diabetes. Bay leaves have compounds called parthenolides that are pain killer. Bay leaves can be added to both food and hot drinks (tea or hot water) but should not be taken by themselves.
Garlic: Garlic is good for heart, lowering bad cholesterol level and reducing high blood pressure. Garlic dilutes the blood and has blood thinning effect that is good for lowering the level of cholesterol and reducing the chances of heart problems. Many doctors recommend aspirin as a blood thinner and to reduce the threat of a heart attack. But aspirin causes gastric ulcers and interferes with vitamin metabolism. Garlic is an excellent alternative as a blood thinner without side effects.Garlic also cleanses the body and prevents the growth of bacteria and fungi.
Licorice: Licorice is really good for enlarged prostates and controlling urinate. An important compound in licorice called glycyrrbizic doesn’t let testosterone to convert itself to dydrotestosterone. Licorice can help both prostate enlargement and frequent urination. You might think that munching licorice candy might be good for health, but keep in mind that Licorice candy sold in the US is made of anise, and not licorice. You can add a piece of licorice root in your tea for its health benefits. Be aware that using too much licorice can increase blood pressure and heart problems and should be taken in recommended dosage.
Rosemary: Rosemary has been known to be a great remedy for Alzheimer disease. The breakdown of acetylcholine causes Alzheimer and rosemary contains several compounds that prevent breakage of acetylcholine. Many researchers and scientists believe that rosemary can be as beneficial as Alzheimer’s drug called “tacrine”, without having many side effects that “tacrine” has such as liver damage. Rosemary can also be absorbed through the skin, therefore you can rub real rosemary solution on your skin.
Ginger: Ginger is really good for stomach pains, poor circulation and cold. In many parts of Asia, ginger is considered a medicine. Ginger tea with lemon is used for treating nausea, motion sickness, vomiting, common colds and poor circulation (for cold hands or feet).
