Herbs and Herbal Remedies
You may or may not know it, but they have originated from plants and herbs.
Knowledge of plants has been handed down through the ages and in more recent times, scientists have begun to study them too.
They found that they can extract some of the natural chemicals from the herbs and also to artificially synthesize chemicals which have "similar" properties (in theory).
Whilst this is laudable in many cases, much of this "progress" has been brought about in the search for profit. Many drug companies sought to control stocks of certain herbs so that they could control the market following their amazing discovery and patent.
Anyway, philosophical ramblings aside, herbs contain the planets
health remedies and their popularity has grown immensely during
the last 20 or 30 years.
For this reason we encourage a common sense holistic approach, and this includes, a healthy diet, gentle regular exercise and natural health products to supplement your lifestyle when necessary.
We believe that any herbal remedy should contain the full spectrum of natural chemicals found in the herb, and not have them extracted out using unnatural methods such as heat or "standardization".
All herbs we supply are either organic or wild harvested. These
are harvested from replenishable sources and confirmed to have
no detrimental effect upon the environment and are free from pesticides
or other man-made chemicals.
We strongly suggest that you do your own reading regarding the
potential benefits of herbs and of following a healthy lifestyle.
We also think that it is important to follow an organic lifestyle
as much as possible.
