Age old use of herbal remedies in all cultures has been endorsed in modern times by scientific research about substantial biochemical benefits of herbal medicine for all kind of psychological, physical and physiological conditions.
Besides being a qualified Western Medical Herbalist I have great esteem for so called kitchen herbal remedies. Most herbs used for flavouring, like mint, oregano, rosemary, thyme and many others are in fact healing herbs too.
Medicinal herbs are available in various forms: fresh, as teas, in capsule or tablets form, and as tincture (disolved in alcohol).
Wild crafted and organically grown herbs are valuable because they are natural.
It is easy to grow them in the garden and even on a small balcony.
Lovingly home grown herbs have a great nutritional and healing value too since they thrive from the nurturing personal energy of the grower.
I need only a handful of my home grown herbs for a healing salad which feels lighter and more nourishing than any greens that I can purchase in the supermarket.
Each and every human aspect - mental, emotional, physiological, physical and spiritual - can benefit from this type of therapy, which helps open up the path to your health, success and fulfilment.
Appropriately chosen healing herbs enhance one's ability for spontaneous healing and help shift the perception from 'problems' to 'solution' and 'feeling stuck' to 'opportunity for growth.'
Some herbs can offer treatment compatible with all other forms of healing - medical, traditional, complementary and self-healing.
However, other herbal and herbal remedies are incompatibile with certain conditions and other prescribed medication.
Therefore it is essential that the qualified practitioner be consulted about such items.
When health is absent, wisdom can not reveal itself, strength cannot be exerted, wealth is useless, and reason is powerless.
