Some herbs and spices have more antioxidants than fruits and vegetables

 and are also are loaded with phytonutrients, which have numerous health
 
benefits. Herbs or any other natural plant life are here for a reason. They
 
have been here since the beginning of time. I truly believe that everyone
 
of them has a purpose.
 
Herbs are used for healing purposes.They nourish, clean and strengthen
 
the organs, cells, tissue, and muscles. Then the body gets strong enough
 
to heal itself. Some herbs are used to purify and cleanse the blood from
 
toxins, parasites, viruses, yeast and bacteria. We all know that we all need
 
a body cleanse once and a while. We also all should know that antibiotics
 
and penicillin break down our immune system. Sometimes it is necessary.
 
But try something natural to kill the bacteria like goldenseal, yelloweye, or
 
echinacea to strengthen your immune system so your body can fight it off.
 
You want to strengthen your immunities, not destroy them.

The reason herbs work is because they are made up of minerals, vitamins.

 antioxidants and phytonutrients. Herbs are food. We all know that our

bodies are made from the minerals from the ground. Without these in our diet,

our bodies start to get weak and deteriorate. Then we start developing

all the medical conditions because it didn't get all the nutrition that it

needed to stay strong and healthy. Most if our food that we buy is

inorganic (depleted of minerals and vitamins). Unless you buy organic

food or grow your own, you are not getting enough nutrition to keep

the body at its full potential. You need to take an organic vitamin and

mineral supplement every day and try eating healthy organic diet with

lots of vegetables and fruit.  Rembember no wheat!! Herbs to treat a

problem. Prevention is the best cure! Over the counter supplements

have chemicals and preservatives that are made with synthetic material.

Make sure you read the lables and they are all natural organic plant

derived vitamins and minerals and at least have the 16 most important

mineral that our bodies require the most.

Most herbs are not made to take on a daily basis.  If your body does not

need that certain one then you might have unpleasant side effects. Every

herb has a certain purposes.  It takes time because you are slowly

nourishing the body back to its original state. Depending on the

problem the length of the treatment may vary. But remember you

are correcting the problem (getting to the source) naturally and permanently,

not covering it up with modern medicine. Once the problem has been corrected,

discontinue the herbs and continue with eating healthy and using a natural

vitamin and mineral supplement to keep the body strong.

The skin absorbs oxygen and separates impurities from blood.  Always have liver

checked when having skin problems. The liver has over 500 functions.  If it is slug-

gish then it does not know how to filter properly. Therefore, it spits toxins

and wastes through the skin. Psoriasis is the biggest skin problem due

to sluggish liver. People with allergic reactions to poison ivy, poison oak

or any other foreign substance. Any time you touch something, it absorbs

through the skin into the blood stream. Your liver has to filter anything

traveling through the blood. If it is not working at its full potential then

it has a problem filtering it. So it spits it right back out the skin. There

are many ailments in the body that the liver can cause. Some you

would never dream your liver has anything to do with. For it has many functions.

Liver spots are the sure sign of sluggish liver. Clean your liver of toxins. Bath every

day to remove dead skin cells. See Foods and Herb page for things that cleans and

flushed liver.
