Ancient Medicinal Plant History:

In the beginning ...

The plant world is one of nature's mysterious wonders. The medicinal miracles of plants has been known and used for centuries. Historical evidence tells us that the Romans, Egyptians, Persians, Hebrews and the Native Americans used plants extensively to heal illness and disease.

In the United States, it wasn't until the early 1900's that the modern pharmaceutical industry emerged. This new system of medicine was born when people discovered they could isolate certain plant compounds. Later this led to the desire for ownership of these discoveries. Since plants at that time could not be patented or owned exclusively, the pharmaceutical industry set out to create their own synthetic compound versions. These "new" drugs were more profitable because exclusive ownership rights reduced competition.

Once Americans were conditioned to accept this new "medicine" and to rely on practitioners serving them, the old natural herbal remedies became a thing of the past.

However, growing awareness and concern over the harmful effects of synthetic chemical drugs has reawakened a curiosity about ancient herbal cures. Because the pharmaceutical industry has been so successful at creating a reliant and obedient population for using their drugs, it is now difficult for people to believe that herbal remedies work.

So, how do herbs help the body heal?

Nature has a wonderful way of giving its living organisms exactly what they need. Herbs are rich in compounds that are nourishing to all our body systems.

Stimulating herbs have strong action and are used for certain ailments. They are taken for shorter time periods.
Even though herbal medicine is not the mainstream in the United States, the World Health Organization estimates that 80 percent of the world's population depends upon plants for their medicinal needs.
