In Touch with Medicinal Plants
In the late 1800s and early 1900s, we could walk into a drug store and find hundreds of herbal extracts for sale. Upwards of 90 percent of the population at that time knew how to use the medicinal plants growing in their backyards to treat common illness and injuries, as this was virtually the only “medicine’ available.
Nowadays we are so used to taking drugs for treating various symptoms but we do not know that those medicines would temporarily treat various symptoms but could not treat the underlying cause. We ignore viewing nature as the source of healing, as had been done for centuries, people began to view drugs and other “modern” healing methods as superior. Sometimes, we should come back and reconsider that “Human comes from Nature and Nature has its own way of healing”
