Herbal medicine...what is it really?

Sometimes when we think of herbal medicine, we think of vitamin and herb capsules lined up on a health store shelf.

Sometimes, folks see herbal medicine as the granny woman at a cabin in the woods, with all her herbs hung up to dry.

 But really, it is neither. Herbal medicine is simply using the plant (and in some cases animal, but I'll get to that later, so hang with me.) kingdom that God gave for it's intended purpose. True Herbal medicine, in and of itself, is not voodoo or witchcraft. Neither is it popping a pill for every little symptom.

You have herbal medicine all around you! This is how God intended it. You will notice that He created all of the plants BEFORE He created man. Hmmmm......  What a thoughtful and loving God!

You have herbal medicine in your yard. In your garden (or your neighbor's. But don't take without permission. :)  Herbal medicine in your cupboards and at the grocery!

You already use some of those things. All that you lack is learning how to use it for medicine.

This is one thing that we have lost from our ancestors! They knew the value of these things, but over time, we have come to rely more and more on allopathic medicine (Western Medical Science), thus losing some very valuable information.

Over the next few weeks, we will look at some herbal medicine that is in your world. And I will share some recipes! You will be surprised and delighted to see what you can do for the health of yourself and your family!

Remember, God did not say "Let there be pharmaceuticals." Nor "Let the Earth bring forth pills for the health of man."

But He did say  "...Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so."  Genesis 1:11 KJV

This was and is a gift to you from God! Because He loves you!
