Natural medicine has always been a passing interest to me. Natural medicine just makes sense to me. Creation is perfect, so doesn't it seem logical that there would be things created that could ease our aches and pains and keep us healthy? My dog knows what plant to go eat when his stomach is upset. Why don't I?
The interest has been passing, mostly because I haven't had the need to find out more about it. We are healthy for the most part. The kids really don't even get more than a runny nose very often, but I've been thinking about health care this week.
I'm glad to have modern medicine. It has its place, but I think that some of the old ways that have been forgotten maybe are the better options. Many of you know that one of my hobbies is foraging for wild foods. The " Wildman" book that I use lists medicinal uses of wild plants. I thought I'd share some of the medicinal uses of plants that I've talked about before.
