Natural Remedies

Nature hold the blueprints and all the awards for providing remedies to help and alleviate our diseases. Most medicines are natural herbs and combinations of herbs, roots, and/or elements of nature.

As a wise doctor once told me, to eat my medicine first which means my daily food intake should provide all the necessary nutrients that provide optimum health; then secondly, if that is not enough, to use herbal medications, for they are closer to what the body knows and easily accepts. If that does not do it, thirdly, work with your professional health practitioner who may prescribe pharmaceuticals to alleviate symptoms.

Successful pharmaceuticals came from compounding, extracting, or mimicking nature; created with strict scientific protocols, many excellent medications came in to being through deeper understanding of our biological nature.

Learning and using natural remedies will aid in our rapid recoveries, and bring about that balance the body needs to heal itself. For all healing is done within the body, through the body’s natural healing processes.

We explore, examine and apply natural remedies that have passed the tests of time and usage.

Topical Remedies

Topical remedies are relating or applied directly to a part of the body. Creams, ointments, salves, teas, baths and poultices create relief and may even cure various outbreaks, and discomforts.

A topical agent is applied to a certain area of the skin and is intended to affect only the area to which it is applied. Whether its effects are indeed limited to that area depends on whether the agent stays where it is put or is absorbed into the bloodstream.
