Isn't it amazing how long it has taken drs to discover the truth in what they used to scoff at as 'old wives tales'??? I am truly grateful that they are beginning to see the benefits of some of these remedies, but saddened to think about how many have been lost. I believe our vitamins, minerals and herbs will cure a lot more then drug companies want us to know about, as they do not want to be able to 'cure' people as this will reduce their revenue, much like oil companies don't want us to replace oil as an energy solution.
