WHAT ARE HERBS?
Herbs are excellent plant sources of foods loaded with nutrients (vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and more) which our body can use to achieve and maintain good health. Herbs also nourish, regulate, cleanse, and help the body heal itself. Herbs are powerful natural foods.
DO HERBS CURE?
No. They nourish. If the body has the ability to heal, it will use the raw materials found in foods to do its own healing work. Herbs do not heal, they feed. Herbs do not force the body to maintain and repair itself. They simply support the body in these natural functions.
ARE THERE CERTAIN HERBS FOR CERTAIN DISEASES?
Herbs do not address disease. Herbs have been chosen over thousands of years to feed different parts of the body. For instance, you might eat carrots for good eyesight. Are carrots a cure for glaucoma? No! But, wouldn't you consume these nourishing foods "at times of" these afflictions? History's answer is yes! Thus we get 'Historical Uses'.
IS NATURAL HEALTH A REPLACEMENT FOR MEDICAL DOCTORS AND HOSPITALS?
No. Natural health is a way of living. It's teaming to develop a lifestyle that supports and fosters health (i.e., fresh air, pure water, wholesome foods, exercise, good outlook, stress management, etc.). Joy of life is the foundation of natural health, not fear of death. 'May you never know the disease you prevented with natural health.
