Your Garden as Your Pharmacy




Do you long to be free of aches and pains, the sniffles, allergies, and a host of other ailments that keep you less than a 100%.

You garden may well hold the key that unlocks the knowledge you need to make changes that will bring much welcomed relief.

A good maintenance plan is worth a million trips to the doctor's office.

*( please note, I'm not attempting to offer medical advice in any manner. If you have major health issues, I would suggest getting medical attention from your prefered source before adopting a self made plan.)

That being clear we can go forward.

These are a few plants/herbs that have long been used and trusted for medicinal uses.

Bee Pollen
Belladonna
Chamomile
Calendula
Cider Vinegar
Eucalyptus
Echinacea
Garlic
Grapefruit Seed Extract
Ginseng
Horseradish
Honeysuckle
Lavender
Lemon
Olive
Pineapple
Potato
Rose
Sage
St. John's Wort
Swedish Bitters
Tarragon

This a very short list and there are as many different methods of use.

Therapeutic Tea, Aromatherapy, Soaks, Supplements, Massage, and Culinary.
These are the methods we can use daily and make our own decisions and conclusions.

For a more official regiment of use-Homeopathy, Hair Analysis, Autohemotherapy,to name a few.

Each little natural thing we do for our body will reward us with a better immune system. This is the key to fighting off major illness if it should visit you.

An herbal soak, a cup of hot herbal tea, a good book and who needs more.
(Well, let's not forget the computer.)

To good health at a price we can afford.

Thanks for sharing this. I've always wanted a herbal garden and has been in my head for quite sometime now. This is surely an inspiration and hope I'll act on it.

Bea, this is a very informative blog about the use of nature to heal what aches and pains us.

My gradmother would go into her garden and pull various herbs etc and heal me where prescription meds were ineffective.

I had no idea about alot of the things on your list that carry various healing properties.

Thanks for sharing, your garden in awesome.
