People think that if they are taking a herb, a plant and not a prescription drug then the herbal remedy is not powerful. According to many, herbal remedies were created by God and drugs were created by mortals. Who is more powerful? If you don't understand that herbs can be very powerful then have a salad of hemlock. Then take 2 aspirins and call me in the morning.
When antibiotics were discovered they were called the greatest breakthrough since the invention of the mp3 player. They were hailed like Caesar. Salad. The antibiotics killed a part of us, bacteria, and kept many alive who would otherwise have died. This is why in the past two thousand years the population of the earth has grown from 1 million to 6 billion. It is projected to hit 9 billion by 2050 at which time we will have eaten all of the herbs and will be forced to live exclusively on man made food. When Karl Benz invented the automobile 150 years ago it was thought to be the greatest discovery since Lana Turner at the soda stand. Without cars we wouldn't be invading the Middle East today for their oil, and the greenhouse gases would not be melting the Arctic and the Antarctic. The Ocean would not have risen 50 feet and Kevin Costner would not have blown a bundle on Waterworld. Who knew?
The bad news is that antibiotics have horrible side effects. Imagine that your body is a large salad bowl. Take my salad bowl. Please. Inside of this salad bowl there are white flakes, your healthy bacteria, your flora and fauna, and black weeds, unhealthy bacteria, poisonous germs. When the antibiotic goes into your stomach and then your colon and into your bloodstream, it kills the germs. The bad news is that it also kills off the healthy bacteria, the white flakes. After you are done taking the antibiotics for a week, only black weeds, fungi, yeast remain in your salad bowl. These yeast fungi are live animals which then begin to have their own population explosion. Soon they have taken over your colon and they begin to eat their way through your colon into your bloodstream which then takes them to every cell in your body. The yeast candida then begin coating and eating through your organs until you develop every illness in the book. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure especially when there is no cure.
You may begin to develop depression, fatigue, yeast infections, emphysema which is where your lungs look like swiss cheese and you sit in agony in a wheelchair wearing a mask attached to oxygen tanks. You are quite welcome Doctor Frankenstein. You may not believe that your Doctor would do this to you. If not then ask why Doctors are handing out Paxil to suicidal patients when they are quite aware that Paxil makes the patient more likely to commit suicide. Or you may ask why your mailbox is filled with Viagra ads when your doctor knows full well that Viagra causes blindness. The list of prescription medicines with side effects causing death in the near and long term is endless. It's all about money. This is why Jesus overturned the tables of the money changers and called the Holy Temple a den of thieves. Your local drug store is no Holy Temple. It may not even be located in Jerusalem.
Sometimes antibiotics are fabulous to kill bacteria which are about to kill you. If you have to take them then after you are done then begin to take acidophilus. Acidophilus capsules contain billions of the healthy bacteria. These healthy bacteria are also found in yogurt. These herbal remedies, flora and fauna begin to multiply and fill your salad bowl with white healthy flakes and leave the black weeds nowhere to grow. Also take grapefruit seed extract pills which kill the black weeds. Most importantly being to take oregano.
Nature's most powerful antibiotic is oregano. The herbal remedy oregano has been clinically proven to kill off bacteria which the strongest antibiotic cannot, viruses, mold, fungi, yeast, and the black weeds in your salad bowl. The herbal remedy oregano comes in several forms. It is sold in your Health Food store as oregano oil, and oregano capsules. You can use the dropper to put some directly under your tongue, or into a bit of grapefruit juice. The good thing about oregano is that it does not kill off the white flakes. Instead it promotes their growth as it kills off the black weeds.
Many people suffer from sinusitis. Sinusitis is often just a bunch of mold which is naturally in the air we breathe, and bacteria, and fungus and parasites in your sinus cavities. Oregano often kills them off and cures your sinusitis. Many children and adults suffer from allergies. Often this is just airborne mold reproducing in the lungs. The oregano goes into the blood stream with sage and cumin, other herbal remedies in the same capsule and kills off the mold reproducing in your lungs, uprooting the cause of the allergy and ending the asthma, bronchitis and emphysema.
Millions of people are caught in a vicious circle. One medication leads to new diseases which require new medications which cause new diseases which require new medications until you are standing at the pharmacy counter with a shopping bag filled with pills in terrible pain and choking to death. The reason that the big drug companies do not advertise oregano is because it grows wild in nature, they cannot patent it, and they can't make money off of it. This does not mean that you should not run to your health food store immediately or online and buy these herbal remedies and kill off your poisonous black weeds and begin to cultivate your flora and fauna. This is the parable of the salad bowl. Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy Bowl season. Go Bruins!
