The Medicinal Benefits of Herbs
The medicinal benefits of herbs have been known for many centuries by Native Indians, Persians, Romanian, Greeks, Chinese and Egyptians. However, during the 20th century, more and more Americans have become dependent on synthetic and commercial drugs for curing diseases. But in the last 15 years, the side effect of synthetic drugs and the desire of many people to be in charge of their own health have led to new discoveries and new scientific research about herbs and their power of healing.
WHAT IS SPECIAL ABOUT HERBS?
Nature is full of abundance and many herbs in nature have rich compounds and organs that can be effective for treating, preventing and curing many diseases including cancer.
The medicinal herbs are divided into two categories: tonic herbs and stimulating herbs.
Tonic herbs help the organs, tissues or cells in the body to keep a balance or tone throughout the body by delivering essential nutrients and helping the body to function properly.
Stimulating herbs are much stronger than tonic herbs and should be taken for shorter period of time and in smaller does. The recent research and studies indicate that “Phytomedicinals” are the true healing power of herbs.
Phytomedicinals refer to the power of the herbal plant as whole, not a single isolated chemical compound.
Phytomedicinals are very well known in Europe and in Germany they are known as “ethical drugs”. In US, Phytomedicinals are sold as dietary supplements in health food stores. The good news is that, more and more Americans are discovering the power of medicinal herbs and today nearly over 50 million Americans use herbal supplements.
Today, based on the studies by the World Health Organizations over 80% of the world population depend on plants for treating common illnesses.
