One of the main reasons why I like working with natural health remedies is the aspect of working with plants and herbs to create healing.

What can be more ‘natural’ than working with the natural world to cure our ills – and this is a very traditional way of looking at health and healing – taking advantage of what nature has given us.

Centuries and millenia ago, humans (like animals) would have maybe known instinctively which of the plants around them could be used to heal… and the knowledge was passed down through generations…

Somewhere along the way, we seem to have lost touch with this intrinsic relationship humans have with plants, but I think it would be all to the good to try to re-connect with these old reliances and knowledge of the natural world around us.

When you make your own herbal remedy from fresh green leaves, it gives you a wonderful feeling of reconnecting with nature…

This may not always be possible, but still, whether you use fresh or dried herbs, grown in your own garden, bought commercially (as dried herbs) or already within a tablet, tincture, ointment or oil, you are in some way carrying on the long tradition of using herbal and holistic remedies to treat health problems.

I find it very useful to have a good working knowledge of what particular herbs are used for… it is so much easier to go into a health food store or pharmacy, and pick out the very herb you need, for a start…
…and you will soon start to learn what the main properties of each herb are, and what they are best used for, and be able to help your own health, and the health of your family.

I will be adding herbs regularly to this section, so please do come back and learn about another herb soon. See all recently added herbs
