Before the cold winter months take hold, I always take stock of my herbal stash inventory and place an order to replenish. It is no secret to those who know me, Herbal teas are my choice of remedy. In fact, I can’t remember the last time I popped a painkiller but it’s been at least 15 years.
I keep hearing in the news of mostly empty shelves in the fever and pain medications’ aisles at stores all across the country. This shouldn’t be the case, but here we are and what are the alternatives? I’m a big proponent of Herbal medicine, however balance is the key to using herbs for healing and although herbal combinations are not addictive, they are powerful nutritional agents that should be used with care. Diet and lifestyle changes also play a huge role for natural healing which is why seeking a professional for guidance and support is always recommended.
I wonder if long gone are the days when there was that one “herbalist” that every neighbour knew of and recommended to one another…? The problem nowadays, if you don’t have a piece of paper “certifying” you as "something", you better keep your preparations to yourself.
