Herbal remedies are in the common plants and weeds growing all around us; they have been provided by God for the healing of our ailments and diseases - and I'll tell you about my earliest efforts to learn about them."
Many of the plants around us, underfoot on your property, or that you see beside the city sidewalk, are herbal remedies, part of God's pharmacy to provide healing solutions for even the poorest of the poor. The animals and birds know it is there, but in North America especially, over the last 200 to 300 years, we've become convinced that only doctors with training in medicines and medical procedures and surgeries know what is best for us. I'm sure they do know a lot of valuable information, but I'm still convinced that God knows far more than we do, and He is gracious enough to provide simple answers. If only we will be open-minded and willing to learn about those resources abundantly provided all around us.
Fortunately, there is also a fast growing segment of society looking for these natural alternative or herbal remedies.
There are many herbal remedies for the same health problem. This is because God knows that not all the plants will be in our vicinity; some thrive better in other climates. So don't try to track down every plant you hear about - just find the ones within your reach, the ones you have access to use.
I don't even pretend to know all about all these herbs, though my family and friends seem to think I know quite a bit more than they do. I just get excited whenever I discover a new herb and it's helpful traits and uses for our ailments. (This is one reason for my website; I need to sort out what exactly I know, and a place to share my NEW knowledge of specific herbs as I learn.
Reviewing My Learning Highlights
As I child I had a natural curiosity about plants that had flowers or were attractive, but I can't say I sought out many of them because of being sent to the garden to weed. My parents made sure I knew the difference between a vegetable and a weed so I wouldn't hack off the wrong plant in the garden. However, in those days, weeding wasn't much fun.
I do recall being sent out to the pasture to pick wild sorrel for the borscht my Gr'ma and also my mother made. Most Mennonite families have several borscht recipes, but my favourite was this one called Summa Borscht, which in those days we could only make when the "zurrump" (sorrel) was in season. If I was called to the door and handed a pail or enamel bowl and told to go pick sorrel I would happily dash off to hunt for those clumps of plants. Supper was going to be good today!
If you want to read about a few more such learning adventures from my youth, go to Herbal Remedies on my website. I'll go into a little more detail on some herbs over the weeks to come. (I believe I'll alternate between herbs and aloe vera information).
Check out This Subscriber Tip About Iodine
Bob Malone, a fine subscriber to this list sends me great tips from time to time. Recently he sent me this link: Why I'm Taking Iodine.
I've read this long page several times and checked out the video and links on it, and I've been impressed enough that I've ordered some iodine and boron to try out for myself. When I've received and tried them out I will let you know if I think these minerals are as fantastic as they sound in this article. The author of the article makes a good case for them. You are mature enough so you can do your own reading and research, right? :)
