Instead of telling yourself you can't have something, start thinking about all the things you can!
- Medicinal benefits
- Effective as drugs with less side effects
- Some herbs are poisonous
- Bitter tasting herbs are medicinal & fresh are most potent
- Pleasant tasting herbs are usually less toxic and used more often (effects are subtle)
- All plant roots and bark are naturally fungicidal and bactericidal
- Roots and barks and other herb parts can retain their medicinal value for years if dried and stored properly
- Herbs are in many forms (glycerol or alcohol-based, dried, encapsulated forms)
- Alcohol free extracts are best in malabsorption patients
