...there was a world in which people had a close relationship with plants and the land. They knew that special plants called herbs could help them feel better and heal their ills.
Then people discovered science, and many good things were learned. But some very important things were almost lost, including appreciation for the natural benefits of herbs.
A new day has dawned and people of that world mentioned above
— you knew all along it was our Earth, didn’t you? —
are taking charge of their health again, rediscovering the importance of herbs in keeping us healthy and happy.
The other essential part of the Herbal Cocktail is, of course, herbs!
Herbs have a long history of being an integral part of keeping us healthy. They have been used the world over for millennia.
As mentioned at the beginning of the page, science and modern medicine have helped us a lot. But they also temporarily led us away from the close relationship between herbs and our good health.
Interest is growing, though, as it is shown more and more that a lot of pharmaceuticals do not actually heal — they help, but they just mask the symptoms of the problem.
Why not help our bodies stay as healthy and strong as they can, naturally, the way Mother Nature intended? Who needs to spend so much money putting unnatural things in our bodies — things that have a high monetary as well as side-effect price tag?
Let Mother Nature lead us to the highest realization of our health. Her greatest helpers in this area are herbs, as well as fruits, vegetables and legumes.
Researchers are proving what indigenous people have always known — herbs and good health go hand-in-hand.
Here are some of the health benefits to herbs:
The first “herbal experience” I had was when at the neighborhood co-op. A helpful employee showed me how a couple drops of peppermint oil can help keep post-nasal drip at bay.
I had suffered with that for years, so it was truly a relief to find this out!
And I was glad to let Mother Nature help me, rather than resorting to a human-made pharamaceutical that would wreak havoc with my body while it may or may not have helped with the problem.
Not too long after that I made an even more important discovery regarding dairy products.

Here is a list of organizations that have much information to offer regarding medicinal herbs and extracts:
There are plenty of studies that validate the many health advantages of herbs. Some herbs work well alone, or in combination with others. The synergistic effects of special herb combinations I call Herbal Cocktails can work wonders.
