“And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.  And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to everything that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.”  (Genesis 1:29-30)

Herbs are FOOD.  Many herbs can be used as medicine, and are extremely effective as such.  Overall, however, herbs work to nourish the body to do the healing itself. 

Herbs are not at all the same things as drugs.    Herbs are alive with the energy of LIFE.  They are perfectly suited to give the body the elements it needs in the perfect delivery system to help it function as it normally should.  Herbs work to cleanse, balance and nourish the body to health.  Drugs are lifeless and therefore incapable of supplying life to the body.  This is why you will find in the United States that we spend less money on food than any country, but we’re first place in medical bills!  We should be paying more attention to the healing powers of herbs and other foods.

The best way to use herbs is to eat them raw, or to drink them infused into a tea.  Herbal medicines can also be directly applied or made into a tincture or an elixir.  Taking herbs in capsules is very convenient, but if taste is part of the delivery system, as is the case with many digestive herbs, then this aspect of the herb is lost when a capsule is used. 

There is very little danger in using herbs by themselves, but when using prescription or over-the-counter medications at the same time, it is best to seek the advice of a qualified practitioner.  Nothing in this booklet is intended to take the place of a doctor’s advice.  It is simply being suggested that herbs can meet some of your nutritional needs and help cleanse, balance and nourish your body so it can heal itself, as was intended by God when first placed on this earth for our use in this way.

If herbal supplements are purchased commercially, be sure of your source.  Many herbs on the market are lifeless, cheap, adulterated with chemical additives, or grown with synthetic fertilizers and pesticides used. The very best herbs are the ones which grow naturally right under your feet.  But if you purchase your herbs, know the source and their practices.

It matters a great deal under what kind of conditions herbs are grown, harvested, stored, transported,  formulated, processed and packaged.  Most herbs are safe that grow right under your feet, and most are safe from reputable dealers.  The main concern with your source is lack of potency, though, and whether they’re truly all natural or not.  You’d be surprised  how many are not. Regulation is not the answer.  Doing your own research is. 

The above is an excerpt from the new book, "God's Gifts of Healing: The Essentials of Life!" by Dr. Jody Evans, ND.  (That's me!)  I will be releasing a whole book on herbs in the future, but for now suffice it to say that herbs are one of God's Gifts of Healing, and they can be used in so many ways!

Most people think of herbs as only a seasoning, but they are actually meant to be our mainstay food.  They are a very good source of nutrition, providing many plant nutrients that our body needs to stay well.  Each herb is specifically targeted towards various uses according to it's nutritional content.  As mentioned above, herbs nourish the body so the body can remain healthy or return to good health.  Be sure to grow them yourself or buy them organic, to get the healing power you need.  Commercial herbs are typically irradiated.  This kills the healing action of herbs and basically renders them of no more benefit than simply for taste.  This is a  big mistake for your health!

Read my book,"God's Gifts of Healing: The Essentials of Life," to learn more, about what God has given us all to stay healthy and well.  Herbs are just one of these mighty gifts.  You can also read my articles on herbs in "Notes from the Naturopath."

This is the 52nd week for our online messages!  We here at Essentials of Life Holistic Enrichment Center hope you are enriched from what you have been reading here!  Please join us for more of our acctivities at  Happy Anniversary to!  YAY!!!
