Food isn’t the only way to use herbs. They can also be very beneficial for enhancing your spiritual path and for healing the mind, body and spirit. People have commonly used herbs to treat illnesses and analyze how herbs benefit their health and lifestyle.
Many years ago, herbs were used for medicine and magic, mainly because they are connected with nature and the universe. The ancients believed that all things were connected with nature and the universe, with each being comprised of the four elements (fire, earth, air, and water) and dual energies (male/female). Also, the human body was seen as a replica of our solar system, and with each body part, it symbolically represented a sign and a planet.
Today, many traditional herbs have been put to the scientific test, and many have proven to possess remarkable, healing powers. Herbs are often proving to be effective and safe alternatives to dangerous and costly drugs.
