"The art of medicine consists of amusing the patient while nature cures the disease."
Natural medicine developed out of necessity, as a commonsense, practical way to maintain health by cultures contending with the challenges of living intimately within nature. Over time, the knowledge and practices coalesced into systems that were passed down, continuously evolving over centuries of use into the world’s great natural medicine traditions.
Why Medicinal Plants?
Nature is the source of our health, and incorporating medicinal plants into our daily routines is a powerful way to stay connected to the natural world. At the heart of natural medicine is the understanding that our bodies have the innate ability to heal themselves, given the right support... Medicinal plants correctly applied have extraordinary health giving powers. Every culture with enviable health and longevity around the world invariably consumes these plants every day.
Medicinal plants contain a host of vital nutrients and unique phytochemicals that accelerate healing and repair while encouraging essential body systems and cellular mechanisms to function better. Enhancing digestion, calming the nervous system, increasing energy, improving sleep, promoting resilience to stress, reducing inflammation, elevating mood and cognition, increasing libido and fertility, boosting immunity, supporting detoxification, nourishing the microbiome, and rehydrating the system are some of their many benefits. These are necessary prerequisites both for feeling good now and generating health in the long term.
