Guide to Herbal Remedies
Most recently, we created the Guide to Herbal Remedies. This resource makes herbal health simple by breaking down 20 herbs you should know and 20 health concerns you probably want to know more about. Choose from our list of herb profiles to learn more about standout healers such as aloe, an African succulent that can be completely neglected and still produce a cooling gel for superficial burns, cuts, poison oak and insect bites; milk thistle, a prickly plant that makes a great liver tonic; or turmeric, a golden spice that has a myriad of health benefits, including anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and astringent properties. Search through our list of common disorders to discover herbal remedies for health concerns such as arthritis (willow bark tea can help ease arthritic symptoms), cholesterol (one clove of garlic a day can decrease total cholesterol by about 9 percent) and insomnia (stuff a handful of hops strobiles into a sleep pillow).
If you’re looking for natural, healthier ways to treat common ailments, such as allergies and the common cold, or take preventative measures for fighting off heart disease, cancer, diabetes and other serious health problems, then this easy-to-use resource is a perfect fit for you. Plus, did I mention it’s free!
To start making your own herbal remedies, download the FREE Mother Earth Living library app from iTunes App Store or Google Play Store right now.
