God has provided us with everything we could ever need, and centuries of history and natural healing prove that alternative (or, shall we say, ‘traditional’) medicine works. Even modern day clinical studies have shown natural medicines to have surprising success rates for people with conditions such as cancer, high blood pressure, cognitive deficiencies and emotional imbalance. The right combination of diet, physical activity, mental and psychological focus, and understanding of natural medicinal properties is all we might ever need to cure the majority of disease and sickness.
The following is a list of nature’s medicines. You don’t have to just add them to a supply storage. You can start using them regularly in your daily life to live longer, happier and healthier.
We tend to look to God as a source of all healing. It is said that He has provided all that we will ever need:
Herbs are a wondrous thing. They not only assist in flavoring dishes and filling the air with delightful aromas, but they also hold medicinal properties that promote healing. Those of you who have herbal gardens of your own, no doubt have a few of these herbal friends already planted.
Plants have been revered through out history for their magical healing powers. In a dire situation where over the counter medicine is no longer available, many will be forced to turn their backs on modern medicine and reacquaint themselves with more homeopathic and natural forms.
In this type of situation, many will be turning to alternative medicines to alleviate and assist some of the more chronic health issues such as high blood pressure, menopausal symptoms, migraines, anemia and arthritis.
1. Cayenne Pepper – (Capsicum minimum)
“Cayenne pepper is a powerful stimulant, producing a sense of heat in the stomach, and a general glow ove r the body without a narcotic effect. A few grains in hot tea will aid in sluggish digestion and flatulence.” (Source – Herbal Medicine: The Natural Way To Get Well and Stay Well)
2. Chamomile – (Anthemis nobilis )
3. Dandelion – (Taraxacum officinale)
5. Marigold– (Calendula officinalis)
6. Peppermint – (Mentha piperita)
7. Sage – (Salvia officinalis)
9. Tea Tree– (Melaleuca alternifolia)
10. Thyme – (Thymus vulgaris)
Although garlic is not considered an herb, I would like to list this as another medicinal must have for the medicinal garden because it all its healing and health properties.
5. Garlic – (Allium sativum)
As many are gearing up to buy seeds for a survival garden, please do not forget to purchase medicinal herbs. Keeping a body as strong as possible from viruses, colds and flu’s will only help a person in the long run. And supplying a home with organic healing medicines can, in an extreme emergency assist in saving their lives.
