What do MULLIEN, GOLDENSEAL, FENUGREEK, WILD CHERRY BARK, THYME, LICORICE ROOT & PLEURISY ROOT have in common? Give up?? Well you will just have to tune in to my radio show on Saturday to find out. But I will give you a hint… We will be discussing the benefits of HERBS!
Four scores and seven years ago…oh wait, that line has been used already!
A long, long time ago… Nah, those lyrics were used by Don McLean!
Since human consciousness began… Yes, that is it!
Long before pharmaceutical companies were created, humans instinctively knew how to heal their own bodies. There were no scientific data or commercials promising “happiness” if you took their “pill”. Somehow, somewhere along the way, we were programmed to believe that “healing” was outside ourselves. That if we ignored what our bodies were telling us, a pill would make us better! That philosophy has lead us to where we are today; victims of our genetics and our world!
What if I told you that YOU have the power to not only heal yourself but you can also reverse many diseases!
What if I told you that “genetics” play only a small role in who you are?
What if I told you that herbs can work better or as well as “a pill”, would you believe me?
My husband and I went to visit his family up North for the holidays. On our last night there, I started developing “allergy like” symptoms. Later, on the airplane these symptoms felt more like a full blown cold…
Being diagnosed with chronic asthma as a child, any respiratory symptoms would lead to bronchitis. In fact, I have used so much hand sanitizer that I have rubbed off my fingerprints! (Good news if I were planning to rob a bank! 😉 ) When I got home, I prepared my herbal tea, increased my Vitamin C intake to 15,000 mg/day and did my saline sinus cleanse… The next day, I was well!
My goal is to heal myself naturally and get off all my prescribed medications… I tell myself “I AM HEALTHY” many times throughout the day and visualize the cells in my body working towards that healing. These thoughts allow me to act healthy. (A POSITIVE MIND WILL PROMOTE HEALING IN OUR BODY… SO, NEVER UNDERESTIMATE THE POWER OF YOUR MIND! 🙂 )
For over 15 years I have been on Synthroid for an under-active thyroid or Hypothyroidism. But, my mostly raw vegan diet may have caused my thyroid to not need as much medication and become overactive! Because of this, I began the process of weaning off my Synthroid. The medication was too much for my body. It was a good time to first lower and then get off my Synthroid altogether. I started taking an herb called Maca Root. (My body is going through an adjustment period at this time but I believe it is going in the right direction as I no longer have a hyperactive thyroid! I will keep you posted on my progress.)
It is my clear intention to research alternative ways to balance out my body. I cannot do this alone. I have been working with a Master Herbalist and a Holistic Doctor in order to achieve my goal. (I suggest that you consult your doctor before making any changes that affect your health.)
This Saturday, January 25, 2014 we will discuss herbs and the different ways you can incorporate them into your life. The great things about herbs are that you know exactly what is in them, they have no extra additives, inexpensive and they don’t cause the same side effects of pharmaceuticals!
Oh, and one more thing… Did I mention that a positive attitude will go a long way toward achieving positive health results? It is time we take our health back and learn what works best for us! Let’s live the life we want!
