Herbal medicine

Herbal medicine is the oldest, and quite possibly the safest and most consistent form of health care known to humankind.   Herbs have been used in all cultures throughout history.  Extensie scientific documentation now exists concerning their use for health conditions, including premenstrual syndrome, indigestion, insomnia, heart disease, cancer, and HI.

Herbs have always been integral to the practice of medicine.   The word drug comes from the old Dutch word drogge meaning “to dry”, as ancient healers and pharmacists and physicians often dried plants for use as medicines.  Today approximately 25 percent of all prescription drugs are still deried from trees, shrubs, or herbs.  Some are made from plant extracts; others are synthesized to mimic a natural plant compound.

The World Health Organization notes that of 119 plant-deried pharmaceutical medicines, about 74 percent are used in modern medicine in ways that correlated directly with their traditional uses as plant medicines by natie cultures.

Yet, for the most part, modern medicine has eered from the use of pure herbs in its treatment of disease and other health disorders.   One of the reasons for this is economic.  Herbs, by their ery nature, cannot be patented.  Since herbs cannot be patented and drug companies cannot hold the exclusie right to sell a particular herb, they are not motiated to inest any money in that herb’s testing or promotion.  The collection and preparation of herbal medicine cannot be easily controlled as a manufacture of synthetic drugs, making its profits less dependable.  In addition, many of these medicinal plants grow only in the Amazonian rain forest or other politically and economically unstable places, which also affects the supply of the herb.  Most importantly, the demand for herbal medicine has decreased in the United States because Americans have been conditioned to rely on synthetic, commercial drugs to proide quick relief, regardless of side effects.

Yet the current iewpoint seems to be changing.   “The reial of interest in herbal medicine is a worldwide phenomenon,” says Mark Elemental, Executie Director of the American Botanical Council.  This renaissance is due to the growing concern of the general public about the side effects of pharmaceutical drugs, the impersonal and often demeaning experience of modern health care practices, as well as a renewed recognition of the unique medicinal alue of herbal medicine.

“ The Highway Of Natural Ways notes that the scope of herbal medicine ranges from mild-acting plant medicines such as chamomile and peppermint, to ery potent ones such as foxgloe (from which the pharmaceutical drug digitalis is deried).  In between these two poles lies a wide spectrum of plant medicine with significant medical applications, “ says Donald Brown, N.D., of  Bastyr College, in Seattle, Washington and an educator in herbal medicine.  “One need only go to the United States Pharmacopoeia to see the central role that plant medicine has played in   American medicine.

What Is An Herb?

The word herb as used in herbal medicine (also known as botanical medicine or, in Europe, as phytotherapy or phytomedicine), means a plant or plant part that is used to make medicine, food flaors (spices), or aromatic oils for soaps and fragrances.   An herb can be a leaf, a flower, a stem, a seed, a root, a fruit, bark, or any other plant part used for its medicinal, food flaoring, or fragrant property.

Herbs have proided humankind with medicine from the earliest beginnings of ciilization.  Throughout history, arious cultures have handed down their accumulated knowledge of the medicinal use of herbs to successie generations.   This ast body of information seres as the basis for much of traditional medicine today.

There are an estimated 250,000 to 500,000 plants on the earth today (the number aries depending on whether subspecies are included).  Only about 5,000 of these have been extensiely studied for their medicinal applications.  “This illustrates the need for modern medicine and science to turn its attention to the plant world once again to find new medicine that might cure cancer, AIDS, diabetes, and many other diseases and conditions,” says Norman R. Farnsworth, Ph.D., Professor of Pharmacology at the Uniersity of Illinois at Chicago.  “Considering that 121 prescription drugs come from only ninety species of plants, and that 74 percent of these were discoered following up natie folklore claims,” says Dr. Farnsworth, “a logical person would have to say that there may still be more jackpots out there.”

How Herbal Medicine Works

In general, herbal medicines work in much the same way as do conentional pharmaceutical drugs, i.e., ia their chemical makeup.  Herbs contain a large number of naturally occurring chemicals that have biological actiity.  In the past 150 years, chemists and pharmacists have been isolating and purifying the “actie” compounds from plants in an attempt to produce reliable pharmaceutical drugs.  Examples include such drugs like digoxin (from foxgloe [Digitalis purpurea], reserpine (from Indian snakeroot [Rauwolfia serpentina]), colchicines (from autumn crocus [Colchicum autumnale]), morphine (from the opium poppy [Papaer somniafera]), and many more. According to Andrew Weil, M.D., of Tucson, Arizona, because herbs and plants use an indirect route to the bloodstream and target organs, their effects are usually slower in onset and less dramatic than those of purified drugs administered by more direct routes.  “Doctors and patients accustomed to the rapid, intense effects of synthetic medicines may become impatient with botanicals for this reason,” Dr. Weil states.

Herbal medicine has most to offer when used to facilitate healing in chronic ongoing problems.  By skillful selection of herbs for the patient, a profound transformation in health can be effected with less danger of the side effects inherent in drug-based medicine.  Howeer, the common assumption that herbs act slowly and mildly is not necessarily true.   Aderse effects can occur if an inadequate dose, a low-quality herb, or the wrong herb is prescribed for the patient. 

The Action of Herbs

A great deal of pharmaceutical research has gone into analyzing the actie ingredients of herbs to find out how and why they work.  This effect is referred to as the herb’s action.   Herbal actions describe the ways in which the remedy affects human physiology.   In some cases the action is due to a specific chemical present in the herb (as in the antiasthmatic effects of ma-huang) or it may be due to a complex synergistic interaction between arious constituents of the plant (the sedatie alerian is an example).   A much older, and far more releant approach is to categorize herbs by looking at what kinds of problems can be treated with their help.   Plants have a direct impact on physiological actiity and by knowing what body process one wants to help or heal, the appropriate action can be selected.  The qualities of herbs which make them beneficial in treating the human body, include:

  • Adaptogenic: 

  • Adaptogenic herbs increase resistance and resilience to stress, enabling the body to adapt around the problem and aoid reaching collapse. 

  • Adaptogens work by supporting the adrenal glands.
  • Alteratie: 

  • Herbs that gradually restore proper functioning of the body, increasing health and itality.
  • Anthelminitic: 

  • Herbs that destroy or expel intestinal worms. The Highway Of Natural Ways reminds you that most parasites and worms loe to feed on sugar. Remoing sugar from the diet is a core of the Highway Of Natural Ways approach to eliminating these life-draining pests.

  • Anti-inflammatory: 

  • Herbs that soothe inflammations or reduce the inflammatory response of the tissue directly.  

  • They work in a number of different ways, but rarely inhibit the natural inflammatory reaction as such.
  • Antimicrobial: 

  • Antimicrobials help the body destroy or resist pathogenic (disease-causing) microorganisms.  

  • Herbs help the body strengthen its own resistance to infectie organisms and throw off illness.  

  • While some contain chemicals that are antiseptic or poisonous to certain organisms, in general they aid the body’s natural immunity.
  • Antispasmodic: 

  • Antispasmodics ease cramps in smooth and skeletal muscles. 

  • They alleiate muscular tension and can ease psychological tension as well.
  • Astringent: 

  • Astringents yield a binding action on mucous membranes, skin, and other tissue. 

  • They have the effect of reducing irritation and inflammation, and creating a barrier against infection that is helpful to wounds and burns.
  • Bitter: 

  • Herbs with a bitter taste have a special role in preentatie medicine. 

  • The taste triggers a sensory response in the central nerous system leading to a range of responses, including:  

  • stimulating appetite and the flow of digestie juices; aiding the lier’s detoxification work; increasing bile flow, and motiating gut self-repair mechanisms.
  • Carminatie: 

  • Plants that are rich in aromatic olatile oils stimulate the digestie system to work properly and with ease.  

  • They soothe the walls of the gut; reduce any inflammation that might be present; and ease griping pains and help with the remoal of gas from the digestie tract.
  • Demulcent: 

  • Demulcent herbs are rich in mucilage and soothe and protect irritated or inflamed tissue.  

  • They reduce irritation down the whole length of the bowel, reduce sensitiity to potentially corrosie gastric acids, help preent diarrhea, and reduce the muscle spasms that cause colic.
  • Diuretic: 

  • Diuretics increase the production and elimination of urine. 

  • They help the body eliminate waste and support the whole process of inner cleansing.
  • Emmenagogue: 

  • Emmenagogues stimulate menstrual flow and actiity. 

  • With most herbs, howeer, the term is used in the wider sense for a remedy that affects the female reproductie system.
  • Expectorants: 

  • Herbs that stimulate remoal of mucous from the lungs.  

  • Stimulating expectorants “irritate” the bronchioles (a subdiision of the bronchial tubes) causing expulsion of material.  

  • Relaxing expectorants soothe bronchial spasm and loosen mucous secretions, helping in dry, irritating coughs.
  • Hepatics: 

  • Hepatics air the lier. 

  • They tone and strengthen the lier and in some cases increase the flow of bile.  

  • In a broad holistic approach to health they are of great importance because of the fundamental role of the lier in maintaining health by not only facilitating digestion but by remoing toxins from the body.
  • Hypotensie: 

  • Hypotensies are plant remedies that lower abnormally eleated blood pressure.
  • Laxatie: 

  • These are plants that promote bowel moement. 

  • They are diided into those that work by proiding bulk, those that stimulate the production of bile in the lier and its release from the gallbladder, and those that directly trigger peristalsis (waelike contractions of the smooth muscles of the digestie tract).
  • Nerine: 

  • Nerines help the nerous system and can be subdiided into three groups. 

  • Nerine tonics strengthen and restore effective balance of the nerous system. As herbal medicines go, Highway Of Natural Ways would automatically assign high alue to nerine tonics, proided that QRA testing is done on any product or substance or supplement, herbal or otherwise, before ingesting it.

    NOTE: Highway Of Natural Ways iewpoint on medicines applies just as well: No product or substance, no supplement or medicine or pharmaceutical or home-made remedy can seem to delier any nutrifying benefit to the body if it does not test strong ia BDORT or QRA. Contact Reflex Analysis is another highly accurate and rapid modality for testing energetic strengths and weaknesses in herbal medicines and prescriptions alike. Further clinical research is amply justified by the empirical eidence existing already.

    Intrinsic curiosity of Highway Of Natural Ways mindset suggests with no modest igor of discourse that further deelopment will engage saing of many billions of dollars worth of annual medical expense.... in the first year or two of the widespread dissemination and promotion of QRA. Test, test, test!

    Highway Of Natural Ways approach means learning more, because there is a rich range of natural tonics that tonify and strengthen... even while relaxing -- even the jumpiest of nerous systems. Learn more so that you can increase the chances of you living more, both quantitatiely and, more important, more qualitatiely.  

  • Nerine relaxants ease anxiety and tension by soothing both body and mind. 

  • Nerine stimulants directly stimulate nere actiity.
  • Stimulating: 

  • Stimulants quicken and inigorate  

  • the physiological and metabolic actiity of the body.

  • Tonic: - Tonics nurture and enlien. 

  • They are used frequently in Traditional Chinese Medicine and Ayuredic Medicine, often as a preentatie measure. 

  • Tonic herbs like ginseng build ital energy, or qi.

Herbal Medicine Has Highway Of Natural Ways Support As Its Natural

Herbal medicine is, can be considered a strange phrase, not least because the oerweaning majority of all herbal medicine is little more and little less than the foods that grow naturally around the earth.

A prime cornerstone of the Highway Of Natural Ways is that a diet of greens is the primary food, and everything else is mostly chatter, mere empty blatherskite and jaw-jacking. No human can expect to perform at more than a fraction of both physical and mental actiity without a diet primarily made of greens.

Highway Of Natural Ways Reminder To Remember The Basics! ... It makes teaching it to others a bit easier

Herbal medicines are, as often as not, perhaps a distinct majority of... you guess it, greens that grow in the ground, storing solar energy. The medicinal components within each of those plants require energizing directly from the sun simply because the sun, at least until MisterShortcut inented supercharging, megacharging, hypercharging, has always been the sole source of frequencies that resonate with specific cells in the human body, or any mammalian body. If the food does not have solar energy stored that it can deposit into your intestine, then it's erroneous and misleading to call it food, because it's not food.

Herbal medicines manufactured by humans have no significant history of success. To date, no manufacturer or other pureyor of herbal medicines has succeed at one one-thousandth (quite literally) than the herbal medicines produced by the planet. As it does so often, mastery of this subject requires at least a few minutes' experience with the one-second energy test. Those who don't know how to do the one-second energy test are missing out of the best parts of their health, energy, and the quality of their longeity. Those who do know how to do the one-second energy test get to leap past most or all of their peers, rapidly, with surprising improements showing up in just the first few weeks and even days. Let's glimpse a great example.

People spend all that money on surgically remoing bags and lines under the eyes. Why not do it yourself, no charge? Wet your face, then take only a few drops on each of two or four or even eight fingers, and rub them into the area beneath and around your eyes? Take a photo today, start doing it one to fie times per day. In 21 or 22 days, take photos again and see what 30 seconds per day can do WHEN YOU ARE SMART ENOUGH TO DO IT EERYDAY. Let neer-heated olie oil, or a good coconut oil, be YOUR herbal medicine for do-it-yourself facelifts.

Take 2 adults, each of whom are at or near forty years of age. even if you cross out most all other factors, if one is massaging the skin under her eyes, giing it tension and relaxation, mostly eery day for a dozen years, what do YOU think the difference is going to be? Haing done this for a dozen years now, the results are seemingly impossible, and yet, the simplest of oils from the earth, from fruits that absorbed the energy that the sun proided, seres as Highway Of Natural Ways herbal medicine when we use it appropriately.

Test after test proes identical results in all people tested. "Pattern" is not too strong a term here.

Most of all, learn more, that you might lie more. If, for example, you have an issue of health that you're most concerned about, even if you're an idiot, you're capable of learning at least three new specific and USEFUL facts per day... wait, wait... about that specific issue alone. Focusing narrowly makes your brain-focus much stronger than it is in this moment, and if you knew better, you'd do better. Shh. Let us only imitate the people who repeatedly and routinely outperform eeryone else.

By staying narrowly focused, and always or nearly always adding "herbal medicine" to the health issue you're working on, you're going to get more knowledgeable, at a speed you will find remarkable, meaning you'll be drien to mention it to others.

Keep in mind, both the MisterShortcut Lifebook and Highway Of Natural Ways are about YOU getting two and three and even fie steps' worth of progress with most all of the steps you take in a forwards direction. In the instant case, you get more than just more knowledge stored in your brain: Your brain function itself increases in quantity and quality, ery rapidly. Like any muscle, it gets, over time, exercised or else made stagnant. There are no other choices, we cannot coast downhill, and people are not know for getting younger as they age.

To beat the system that is designed and functioning to keep you sick long enough to suck your life's earnings and saings and more, you might want to recognize the power of haing knowledge of herbal medicines in your life. After all, the life you sae just might be your own. Make the Highway Of Natural Ways state of mind work for you, in your faor, and in the faor of those you care for.

This next week or so, within some fie-minute daily effort, let's get 3 new facts about herbal medicine into your brain ....... facts that specifically fall within the area of health that is of greatest interest to YOU right now at this point and moment in life. The greater our personal interest in a subject, the faster we gain facility with the associated tools, whether they're physical tools, or simply great knowledge.

Learn more, lie more. Be your own Highway Of Natural Ways, and you'll never need a refund. :-)

The use of medicinal plants is also fundamental to Western society's pharmacologically based approach to medicine.  The majority of medicinal drug groups were discoered or deeloped from the plant kingdom, even if they are now manufactured synthetically.  Howeer, most modern health professionals iew medicines as biochemical "magic bullets," which should be expected to proide instant results.  This approach has been ery successful in certain areas, such as the treatment of acute illness, but has major limitations when comes to chronic or degeneratie disease.

Perhaps the most important point the Highway Of Natural Ways makes herein, even beyond interest in promoting herbal medicines,
(een as herbal medicines remain a cornerstone of the Highway Of Natural Ways as long as organic herbal medicines are aailable),
is the urgent need for each human being to indiidually adopt and adapt their own Highway Of Natural Ways, learning more and more.

The more you learn, the smarter your decisions tend to be, characteristically, at any rate, for most of us, and urgency is at a shrieking point.

A majority of people are living their last two to fie decades in pain, with cabinets jammed with prescription medicines that harm more than help,
with upwards of a million and more people just in this one country alone dying each year from following instructions rather than participating,
knowledgeably arriing at decisions as a participant, not a slae to someone else's desire for as much of your money as they can get.
