Herbal Remedies

Herbal remedies have a long history. Our ancestors used herbs as medicine because they had no choice.

Rather than use a chemical cosh, you can try herbal remedies to take control of your own life - look after your own health and empower yourself.

You will need to be aware of the medical implications - if you are already taking chemicals, then speak to your doctor about trying herbs as a solution - some drugs react badly with herbs and you need to know that you are not going to do more harm than good.

Many powerful modern drugs are derived from plants - digoxin for heart problems is derived from foxgloves for instance, but it is not safe to use foxgloves in their natural state as they are very toxic - you will likely die if you try to use it in its natural state!

St Johns Wort is routinely prescribed in Germany to  relieve mild depression, mint tea is a common remedy for an upset stomach - read on to find out how you can take control of your own well being, but be very cautious if you are already taking medication.
