The Healing Power of Herbs
May 2nd was herb day, so let’s take a quick look at why herbs are such a vital part of our cooking, nutrition, and healing.
Believe it or not, herbs have been used for thousands of years for their powerful healing properties. It’s traced all the way back to ancient civilizations like the Greeks, Chinese, and Egyptians. Today, many people still put their trust in herbs, using them as a natural alternative to modern medicine, or to support a multitude of health goals, since they have the power to treat a variety of ailments.
Herbs have many active compounds that enhance healing. For example, ginger contains a powerful anti-inflammatory compound called gingerol, which helps reduce inflammation throughout the body and reduce pain. Turmeric, on the other hand, contains curcumin which offers both anti-inflammatory and antioxidant values, protecting the full body from damage from free radicals.
However, it’s not only powerful for our physical health. Herbs and plants like chamomile contain apigenin which helps reduce anxiety, improve sleep, and promote relaxation in the body and mind.
The biggest benefit of herbs is that they can be consumed in a variety of ways, like teas, supplements, applicable creams, or in cooking. They generally don’t have any side effects, offering you a powerful way to promote health and wellness in your body by using natural ingredients that are easy to integrate into your diet.
