Choosing Herbs For Diseases Before Medication

Herbs for diseases can provide an alternate way to think about your health.  It is unfortunate, but illness is a fact of life. The main problem that comes with most illnesses is a compromised immune system. The stronger an individual is, the more they can fend off illnesses. That means taking every step necessary to building a stronger immune system and thus, preventing diseases as much as possible. However, that said, even the strongest and the healthiest of people can succumb to any sickness, but the difference is that they can avoid it from taking a serious toll on their health. Whatever the case, choosing herbs for diseases before medication or in combination with traditional medicine is a viable option.

As we all know, there are different types of diseases that affect humans. Nature is set up in a way that can provide relief of the symptoms or even cure the given disease. It is important for people to search out the natural treatments and cures which have little or no side effects, rather than pharmaceutical solutions which are loaded with side effects. Below are some helpful herbs for the various sicknesses that affect the human body.

For the common cold, instead of reaching for cough syrup, opt for thyme which is readily available, even in grocery stores. Simply prepare a tea and by letting the thyme steep in boiling water for about 5 minutes. It could be drunk unsweetened or sweetened with some honey. Instead of decongestant nose sprays, use saline solutions and a humidifier with eucalyptus leaves to open up the passages.

Far too many people suffer from a variety of digestive problems, which include constipation, gas, and bloating. The digestive system is a very important part of the body and needs to function properly to ensure good overall health, as well as a sharp mind. In order to help it work better, prepare a tea made with sage leaves or chamomile flowers.

For the more serious conditions, like diabetes for example, there is help as well. Firstly, food should be cooked in a healthy fashion and that includes using certain herbs and spices that will help to control blood sugar levels. Find recipes where garlic, onion, cinnamon and ginseng can be used to add flavor and provide the health benefits for this life-threatening condition. As well, caffeine and flaxseed have proven to be helpful to diabetics.

Stress is another huge problem which is directly related to diseases of all kinds. Instead of allowing it to get out of control and negatively impact your life, treat this problem rather than the disease that may develop from it such as depression and anxiety. It can be treated naturally with St. John’s Wort, whose use dates back to the ancient Greeks for treatment of depression, anxiety, sciatica and many more ailments.

It is known through different studies to have anti-depressant properties and help to improve the mood of individuals. St. John’s Wort also has anti-bacterial properties making it helpful with healing wounds and burns.

While herbs for diseases are a better option in most cases, and even though they are all-natural, their use should be discussed with a doctor to ensure there is no interference with other medications you may be taking.
