Natural herbal treatments

 

First, some basics of making herbal formulas:

 

Herbal formulas are a great way of addressing the

many different aspects of a condition with one

preparation. For example, a good formula for heart

disease would probably include an herb to strengthen and

protect the heart, one to nourish the tissues, one to

thin the blood and increase circulation, one to regulate

the heartbeat, and one to lower cholesterol and clean out

the arteries (the elimination organs should also be

cleansed).

 

Formulas are also good to use because people are

all different and while one might respond best to one

herb, another might get better results with a different

herb. I find that one of the herbs that relaxes me the

best is chamomile; it puts me right to sleep, and

valerian root just calms me down. My mother is the

opposite - valerian puts her to sleep while chamomile is

mildly relaxing/calming for her.

 

By combining 2-3 (or even more) herbs that have the

same general effect, or work on the same part of the

body, you will have a preparation that will supply the

needs of a much greater number of people. One person

might respond best to black pepper, another to ginger,

and yet another to fennel, but if you combine the three,

you'll have a preparation that will give them all

marvelous results.

 

These formulas are a great asset and healing tool,

but they are not the only tools in your healing tool box;

they are not an entire program, and you must address the

root cause of a problem for healing to be complete and

permanent. This course makes a great beginning to your

healing journey, but please don't think that this is all

you need to get well. Lifestyle changes and other natural

treatments are also in order.

 

Also, these formulas were designed so that you can

make them entirely from the herbs in this course and

while you will certainly see results when they are used

properly, there are many other herbs that I normally use

in such formulas to make them even more effective, that

are not included here because I wanted to make these

formulas easy and affordable for everyone to make and use

(not everyone has access to or can afford Gymnema

sylvestre or wild American Ginseng for making their

formulas).

 

Don't be afraid of designing your own formulas

either, just research and learn about the properties of

different herbs and put together a combination of herbs

that address different aspects of a particular problem.

You don't need a degree and you won't hurt yourself, just

listen to your body and use your common sense, and you'll

come up with a wonderful formula. And if you have any

questions, please don't hesitate to email them to me.

 

Parts - "Part" just means an equal measurement. It

varies according to how much of the formula you want to

end up with. So if you have a formula that calls for 3

parts of one herb and 1 part of another, and you want to

end up with 4 ounces of the formula, then each part would

be one ounce. In other words, you would use 3 ounces of

the one herb and 1 ounce of the other.

 

Also, it is more accurate to measure parts by

weight than by volume, in other words, use a food scale

instead of a measuring cup if you can. If you can't get

one, just estimate and don't worry about it, but if you

are going to be making large amounts of these formulas,

you will find a scale to be of great help.

 

Once you have measured out your herbs, you can mix

them together and then either powder them, tincture them,

or do whatever kind of preparation you want to. Remember,

the instructions for making preparations are in my free

ebook that you can download right now. If you haven't

already, you can do so by following the link at the top

of this email.

 

Some (rather inexperienced) individuals say that

people shouldn't take multiple herbs at the same time

because they are "risking side-effects from unnecessary

medications." This simply is not true. These people are

making the mistake of thinking that herbs operate in the

same way that drugs do. They do not.

 

Drugs have harmful side-effects because they are

toxic foreign substances that interfere with the body's

normal way of functioning in order to control/suppress a

symptom of an illness. Herbs, on the other hand, are

entirely natural substances (foods) that were designed

specifically for our body by our all-wise Creator and

they work with the body, encouraging and supporting its

natural processes and supplying it with what it needs to

correct the cause of illness and heal itself.

 

This is why herbs do not have the side-effects of

drugs and why it often takes longer to feel results with

herbs than with drugs; it takes longer to heal a problem

permanently than to simply ignore it.

 

The effects of herbs are very different from those

of drugs because their mode of action (the way they work)

is different. Healing herbs, when used with prudence and

skill, will never have ANY harmful or damaging side-

effects of any kind, regardless of whether they are taken

in combination with other herbs or not. Your body has the

ability to take only the parts of herbs and foods that it

needs and discard the rest. It cannot do this with

synthetic chemicals and drugs; they are absorbed

according to how much you take, rather than how much you

need.

 

Herbs also contain many nutrients (“raw materialsâ€)

to help your body build and repair itself and strengthen

it so it can defend itself against disease; there is no

synthetic chemical drug anywhere that does this.

 

So don't worry about taking formulas with several

herbs. Herbs are foods, and saying that herbs are harmful

in combination, when they are not harmful alone, is like

saying that people should not eat salads because

combining cucumbers and lettuce with tomatoes might

produce harmful side-effects. Give me a break!

 

Drugs can interact harmfully with each other and

sometimes with various herbs and foods, but herbs will

not interact harmfully with any other herbs or with live,

natural, wholesome foods. Herbs are NOT drugs, they do

not operate in the same way, and they do not produce the

same kind of effects/side-effects.

 

The worst thing that can happen to you if you

overdose on an herb that I (or another good herbalist)

recommends, is that you would do a little vomiting.

That's the worst case scenario and it's nature's way of

making sure that you don't get too much of the herb at

once. How awesome is that!? A medicine with a built-in

protection mechanism against overdose! No drug can do

that!

 

One note on preparations: you can take these herbs

in capsules, but you will get better (and faster) results

from liquid extracts like teas, syrups, tinctures,

glycerites, oils, and vinegars. See my free e-book for

instructions on how to make these.

 

Here are some suggested dosages:

capsule: 2 caps 3 times a day

tincture/glycerite/vinegar: 2 dropperfuls 3 times a day

oil: apply liberally to the affected part

tea: 1-2 cups 3 times a day

 

In emergencies or extra severe situations, take 4

times the normal dose or even more if necessary. For

animals, children, etc. figure the dose by putting their

body weight over 150, the average adult weight. In other

words, an adult of 150 pounds would get the normal dose;

a child or pet that weighs 50 pounds would get 1/3 of the

normal dose; an overweight person of 300 pounds would get

twice the normal dose; and a horse of 1,500 pounds would

get 10 times the normal dose. This gives you a good

starting dose, but keep in mind that you can go up or

down from there depending on what the person's needs are.
