Spices And Herbs Can Offer Safer Relief From Ills Than Pills


Most Americans are brainwashed by the medical establishment. They believe that the only relief available to them comes from a pill.

At the first sign of a medical issue they turn to allopathic doctors who are mostly just pill pushers for Big Pharma. But there are dozens of herbs and spices that are recognized as having the ability to naturally set our bodies back aright when the natural functions get out of whack. Here are five:

Lemon balm— This highly versatile herb is useful to help anxiety sufferers, to boost the immune system, help with digestion and relieves cold sores. It also helps soothing teething pain in children. (Don’t use if suffering from hypothyroidism.

Ginger— Ginger tea or ginger ale is excellent at settling distressed stomachs. Ginger boosts the immune system and has antimicrobial and pain-relieving properties. It serves as an expectorant and diaphoretic, which makes it a great source for relieving the symptoms of colds, coughs or fevers. Cooled or cold ginger tea can be applied to burns to help relieve pain.

Tumeric— This spice helps with heart health, digestion, liver function and to fight Alzheimer’s. It can be applied to the skin to treat eczema.

Dandelion— This weed is a superfood that is edible from root to flower. Its sap can be used topically on warts. Its leaves make a great tea or salad. It helps liver health and is a diuretic.

Elder— The plant’s berries (elderberries) make a nice wine and also serve to strengthen the immune system. Some like to make a syrup from the berries to use when cold and flu season arrive.

    You are so right! But I read something recently about alternatives not being allowed under the Obamanoncare Act–patients must stay on the doctors’ regimen of medicine or face fines or loss of insurance?

      Typical of someone trying to destroy the United States. Stick with conventional western Medicine and die. They are so far behind and are so slow to acknowledge that something besides drugs work. The facts are that drugs work rarely and have terrible side effects. So we are talking about a mega billion dollar industry against an affordable alternative. That actually works.

      • TexasOlTimer

        Well, gee, if it works, then we have to get rid of it! Isn’t that Obama’s viewpoint? The drug companies make no money off of herbal or alternative remedies. They pay big money to give doctors samples and put ads on tv for symptoms that we’ve never heard of before – but here’s the drug to cure it – if it doesn’t kill you first.

          You have the right idea Texas. If cures you and only costs a little bit of money, what good is it. Our profits have remain in 10 to 20,000 % range or we can’t take those vacations and stay in the penthouse. No young women and champagne either. Can’t have that. Can’t pay the politicians their cut, and what about the communist president?
