Herbalism is a word used to describe the belief that herbs and God’s perfect creations are here for our healing. This word indicates that the sun and the energy of plants is enough to heal our bodies.

Years ago, there were numerous books and studies written about the benefits of plants and herbs for our health. There was once a time when we could assume that no matter what the ailment was, there was a plant that will cure it.

At one point, you did not even have to put the herb on the body or in your system, you can walk by a tree or a plant and the energy would heal you.

So, what has happened?

Over the years, people want to find something easier and quick to do the same thing that God already had in place, so they started creating medicines that mimicked the herbs.

In turn, we removed the natural element and began walking in chemical based, fake elements that were created to do the same job.

We changed our diets to more meat than plants and that opened up the door to many sicknesses and diseases that we were never supposed to be plagued with.

Thank God, it is never too late to go back to the goodness that God created.

There are so many herbs that are so beneficial and are easily accessible with no side effects and no problems. We must first educate ourselves with what is what.

Over the next few weeks, I will be sharing many herbs, their benefits and how to make them beneficial.

It is time that we use our intelligence to learn what has been given to us for thousands of years instead of trying to create medicines that cause more harm than cure.

It is important that we acknowledge the healing behind herbalism and remember the father of western medicine, Hippocrates. He instructed his apprentice to treat all diseases with one of 49 herbs.

Hippocrates was born in 460 B.C. During this time, many of the ailments we face now, are no longer problems we face regularly.

“Leave your drugs in the chemist pot, for your food shall be your medicine and your medicine your food.” – Hippocrates
