Herbal Medicine

I would like to start out by saying a verse from Genesis 1:29-30 “And God said, behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat. And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to everything that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.”
This verse from the bible has a powerful, but simple meaning; all herbs shall be taken in to our body as the meat for healing. I not only believe in herbs because it is said in the bible, but because herbal medicine has the power to prevent & heal. Why?, well, its quite simple really, our bodies are organic, so, why would you want to take in something that’s inorganic, would it not be wiser to allow the body to heal with organic products. That’s exactly what you are doing when taking pain relievers, heparin, and antihypertensive medications just to name a few. In herbal medicine, the patient is empowered, and since herbs are certainly more convenient, without prescriptions or limitations, more patients can enjoy their benefits. The benefits which I’m speaking of is the ability to prevent & heal. Let’s take cardiovascular disease for example, which just happens to be the leading cause of death in the U.S., and according to Dr. David Vastola in his book To your good health, he wrote out a section with a natural alternative for CAD and hypertension, how, well he says by taking in Omega 3, L-Carnitine, and Coenzyme Q10, that these 3 things can help a person to cope with CAD, and as for hypertension all they have to do is either to take Coenzyme Q10 or Hawthorne. Have we all here heard one time or another that ulcers are cause by stress, well, the NIH said that ulcers are caused by the helicobacterpylori bacteria, not by stress, and the NIH said that they can be “cured” with a combination of the trace mineral bismuth and tetracycline. The number two cause of death in America as we all know is Cancer, well, the NCI (Sept 1993) and Harvard Medical School performed a study on cancer patients, and the results were that they found an anti-cancer diet. The study was done in China for five years with 29,000 people, and in this study they found one specific group showed positive results. In this group they had Vitamin E, beta carotene, and the trace mineral selenium. Results in this group were that 13 % of all cancers survived with those three nutrients.
I believe in nutritional wellness because it is the natural and cheapest alternative to healthcare, after all, isn’t healthcare about caring for the patients, not making money off them.
