HealedwithHerbs.com is aimed at providing information on the medicinal uses and effects of herbs, spices, essential oils, and more. We provide instructions for preparation of teas, tinctures, tonics, as well as body products such as soaps, lotions, and sprays. Our mission is to provide comprehensive and accurate information for herbal, and other natural remedies, to medical issues normally treated with pharmaceuticals. It is our feeling that, many of today’s health ailments are caused and exacerbated by a life style that has been socially accepted as “normal” and “healthy”. As more research comes to light, we find that what has been deemed as healthy lifestyle choices, aren’t necessarily true. For instance, taking prescription medications might be helpful, and even life saving, for many cases. However, it has become apparent that many doctors are quick to prescribe medications with long lists of side-effects, for ailments that are both common and easily treated with the resources earth gives us straight from the ground. Sometimes these medications are grossly overpriced, take the 2015 Martin Shkreli/Daraprim debacle, for example. Herbal remedies may not be covered by insurance, but they also don’t cost hundreds of dollars per dose.
We want everyone to feel their best and to live a happy and naturally healthy lifestyle. When you choose to heal yourself with natural ingredients, you are not only supporting your own personal physical health, but also the health of the planet and those who live on it. Pharmaceutical companies use environmentally devastating methods to create their products, and by reducing our use of these medications, we hopefully reduce the demand and thus the production for supply.
Medications produced by pharmaceutical companies have high toxicity rates, devastating side effects, and are easily over-dosed. Plant medicine, whether it be from whole herbs or extracts, are generally gentler and less toxic, thus harder to overdose. That’s not to say plant medicine is without it’s flaws, and we implore you to understand the health risks associated with any ingested or topical treatment, regardless if it is considered natural, herbal, or otherwise.
If it has to do with plants and how they can make you feel better then we’re here for you!
We hope you that you find the information to help you feel whole again on our website, and we encourage you to email us with any questions or suggestions you might have!
