How many pill bottles does it take to cure or ease the pain of a disease? How many trials and errors are necessary to find the right drug? Why are the risks and warnings of taking medication over time so high?
These are the questions I ask myself every day.
To be clear, I’m not against Western Medicine. Of course, I’ve been vaccinated. I see my primary physician and OBGYN once a year, but I mainly turn to medicinal plants and herbs. I don’t want my body to surrender to any drug it can’t function without. I’ve witnessed it happen too many times to loved ones.
That’s why my health and what I put into my body is a top priority.
I start my days taking ashwagandha, oil of oregano, and occasionally black seed oil (sometimes I take a teaspoon of it before bed).
Ashwagandha root (Withania somnifera), has helped manage how my body reacts to stress and anxiety. I’ve seen a vast difference over the past year and my energy levels have increased.
Oil of oregano has several healing benefits. It’s a natural antibiotic and supports a healthy intestinal balance. The taste is super potent and may feel as if it’s burning your throat. I recommend adding 2-3 drops of the liquid concentrate into a small amount of water and gargle with it before swallowing or buy the liquid capsules. They are just as powerful.
Black seed oil (organic black cumin) is another great immune booster, providing plant-based essential omega fatty acids and can treat asthma, diabetes, high blood pressure, and more.
These three supplements have been life-changing since I started incorporating them into my routine. My immune system sucked. I used to get sick often to the point where it would last for weeks, and that has lessened drastically.
The last herb extract I consume, not daily though, is red clover (pictured above).
Red clover is a floral herb that can be ingested in tea, oil, and capsule form. It is said to be a blood cleanser, prevent cancer, and relieve premenstrual and menopausal symptoms. The taste is more on the herbal tea side. I enjoy adding it to my water for flavor.
All I’m saying is, what if we could get ahead of the curve and prevent what may be genetic or terminal because of our habits, environment, etc.?
