Breath of Life - Natural Healing: Herbal Remedies
Nature's oldest healer's are most certainly herbs. The great advantage of a herbal medicine over conventional drug treatments is that it does not have side effects. Instead, herbs have many more beneficial effects within the body.
For example: Valerian officinalis (Valerian) is used to promote a deep and natural sleep. On taking conventional sleeping pills, the patient usually feels groggy and unmotivated the following day. Aside from this, a dependency on the drug is built up and greater doses are needed to get the same effect. With Valerian, the patient wakes refreshed and more relaxed, with a clear head and plenty of energy. Herbs do not cause dependency, rather encourage the body to heal itself.
