The KNOWLEDGE of Nature and HERBS is ultimately HEALTH.
Have you ever wondered why today’s prescription and over the counter medicine encompasses such a variety of harsh and sometimes dangerous side effects?
Well, the answer lies in nature—until mid-1980’s over 88% of our medicine sold in the market were made from herbs, plans, roots, spices and fruits. Today, only 15% are such like; the rest are synthetic.
Synthetic means: Artificial, Copied, Unreal, Man-made, Imitation ….
No wonder it contains such variety of unexpectedly odd and dangerous side effects. Our bodies know it is not real; therefore, it reacts and responds to it.
Nature has created remedies for our ailments; granted, a physician must diagnose the ailment before looking into the proper herbs, healings and remedies. An herbalist, by law, cannot diagnose anyone but can guide and teach you to find a way to health through nature.
Background: Since 2008, I have had the privilege of studying under several Master Herbalists such as Michael Tierra of ‘The East West College of Herbalism’ and Karta Purkh S. Khalsa, who is an herbalist, nutritionist, yoga teacher and the head of American Herbalists Guild. He is author of over thirty (30) herbal books. Growing up in Asia, herbal healing has been an undying and everlasting part of my life.
