X X Xi-omHevveUynsivioüno.gnBook, J974 " PrLTcomPaed by Tom - Jevve, VSf tff In today 's modern society with countless synthetic I VlK drugs, the question may well be asked: Why use herbs? vJP) But after experiencing the plethora ofside effects of AVI synthetic medicines, people today are remming at last 1 J to the valuable remedial properties of herbs and fruit )jA and vegetable juices. Nature's cures are the herbs and rh their seeds that grow naturally all over the earth and (f with which the human form has evolved inseparably rW J over countless een tunes. Sf Herbal healing predates recorded history. lts mev& thods, handed down from generation to generation, v 1 were the basics for the witch lore of the past, and sup. si plied, as well, the flrst medical advances in the treatYSff ment of most human disease. f w Unnecessary, profit-motivated advertising has turned n A People's heads toward the quick acting pain relieving UA drugs ofscience that elimínate the body's symptoms fXiJ and warning signáis, but do not eradicate the cause of w the disease. Herbs are food for the human body and YvA ney contain tne v'tomins, minerals and other t nu tri tional factors necessary to the balance of the QJJ body 's systems, as do the other natural foods we eat k( (vegetables, fruits, grains, etc). The purpose of a remedy is to help the body cure itself. When certain organic minerals and vitamins necessary for balance are lacking in our diet, disease results. Herbs supply the body with the essential elements it needs to rebuild the areas weakened or damaged by disease. Synthetic drugs kill disease organisms, but destroy as well the necessary and benefwial organisms that promote absorption ofnutrients, vitamin BI 2 synthesis, and protection against invading disease organisms. Moreover, synthetic drugs do not correct thé underlying nutritional imbalance so that although the manifestation of disease is removed, the patiënt is rendered susceptible to new disease, which inevitably reoccurs. Natural herbs have an'advantage over modern drugs. As they are living energy-matter, herbs contain an organic combination ofsubstances in the proportions needed by the human body. In their natural form the body can easily assimilate and convert them into healing remedies. Moreover, because of these elements, herbs can be used effectively as an aid to the body in preventingas well as healing disease.
