Bulk Herbs Promote Healthy Lives
In England and Canada it’s pronounced herbs with an h, and in America it’s ‘erbs.’ No matter how you pronounce it, the incredible value of bulk herbs for our health and well being is the same worldwide. It is difficult to overestimate their value, and here are a few reasons why.
Though both are health chemicals, drugs and herbs are used in different ways. Herbs offer a holistic approach by treating the cause, and working with the whole body. Medicines, on the other hand, tend to treat one symptom with one ingredient. Then too, while herbs are used more in preventative and healing ways, drugs are used to treat diseases or symptoms of diseases.
Bulk herbs have stood the test of time. The use of herbs can be traced back 5000 years in China for prevention, healing, and relaxation. Herbs are natural and thus they tend to yield better results with fewer side effects. At times medicines must be given to override the side effects of other medicines.
Herbs are generally much cheaper than drugs, though insurance rarely covers herbal remedies. The nutritional value of bulk herbs is increasingly being researched. Herbs contain a wide variety of vitamins and minerals that help strengthen the immune system. In a day when the cost of medicine is rising out of reach, herbs will surely regain their previous appeal.
When first discovered, antibiotics were toted as miracle drugs. However, their overuse has brought us to the frightening prospects of the return of deadly diseases in more lethal forms. This has not been true of herbs. Though, to be sure, herbs can be overused and their individual value overestimated, viruses and bacteria do not generally mutate to override their effectiveness.
Herbs are extensively used in toothpastes, shampoos, soaps, cosmetics, oils, herbal creams & ointments, sprays, lotions, tinctures, and even in cooking. This plethora of uses shows how valuable bulk herbs are for the entire body, both for our health and well being.
Those who believe in intelligent design recognize that the one who made man also made herbs for the good of man. It is common knowledge that plants and animals work together in a symbiotic relationship through photosynthesis and respiration. Thus, it is not surprising to see other interdependence in nature. Herbs are God’s gift to us for our good. As the poet once said, “For every disease we know, God provides a herb to grow.”
Finally, unlike medicine that will only deal with the symptoms, those who use herbs are more willing to deal with the social and cultural context in which the illnesses occur. For example, a set of symptoms may have resulted from stress. A suppressant may calm the nerves but it does not deal with the stress. In fact, at times, some drugs actually hinder a person from being able to think through the root problem clearly. Bulk herbs don’t eliminate stress, but they may sooth a person so they can think clearly about the root causes. And in the process, herbs won’t harm the body or mind.
Bulk herbs won’t work miracles. They are simply natural substances that can provide basic needs for the human body. The medical community today too often dismisses as folklore the proven value of herbs and natural remedies. Why not consider an alternate approach to your health needs? Why not research how herbs can benefit you naturally?
