How excited I am to be able to share all the remarkable things I learn every day from people that I come in contact with.

Herbs 411

Herbs are one of the most enticing and creative ways to explore non-traditional medicines. Walking down a trail is one way to become familiar with Nature's garden. There are so many common plants just growing wild that have been used for centuries as allegedly healing tools.

Native Americans are still one of the largest contributors of knowledge of the use of medicinal herbs and plants. I have categorized herbs and plants under the same heading because there will be so many interactions of the different varieties that people love discussing whether the plant is a herb or just a plant. I am going to try to appease them all.

The amount of knowledge I have acquired from just the research of these different herbs has sometimes overwhelmed me as to all the things I wish I had known at an earlier age. I look back at some of the ailments my friends and relatives had suffered from and if I had known some of the things I knew today, I really think I could have helped them so much.

I hope by my experience and my always looking for knowledge of why and how things can be used, that we can come together to enrich each others lives. I look forward to hearing from any of you who have had success stories with alternative medicine.

Nothing I pass on to you will be considered a cure, diagnosis or anything that you should do without your Doctor's consent.
