(NaturalNews) Why are mental health issues like anxiety and depression on the rise? Conventional wisdom would suggest factors such as, the financial crisis, an aging population, or - when all other options are ruled out for the individual - the rising stress of living in the 21st century. But, there is a real health solution - largely ignored by western medicine.
Herbalism has the power to cure! In order to prevent, even reverse disease - one must address the underlying mental, emotional and spiritual issues. Although a bit surprising, to those never taught this concept, all diseases stem from nervous system imbalances caused by poor diet, environmental toxins and lifestyle habits. On the next NaturalNews Talk Hour, Jonathan Landsman and Llynn' Newman, MS, CN will talk about how to reverse disease with herbal medicine.
The pharmaceutical industry makes it nearly impossible for the average physician to understand herbal medicine. I'm not making excuses for the complacency of individual doctors - but the fact remains that medical students are poorly educated about herbs. Yet, most pharmaceutical drugs are derived from plants.
In reality, there are plenty of herbs designed to protect the heart; lower cancer risk; minimize the threat of radiation exposure; reduce stress; improve sleep patterns - the list goes on and on. For example, raw garlic is great at boosting the immune system. Ginkgo can improve cerebral circulation and ginseng is a great adaptogenic herb to help us cope with stress.
If you're looking for a more natural way to sleep better, lower stress levels and enhance your spirituality (or connection with nature) - don't miss the next NaturalNews Talk Hour with Jonathan Landsman.
Living proof that herbs boost physical and mental powers
Rhodiola has been used in Russia and Scandinavia to cope with the cold Siberian climate and the stressful life that comes from living in harsh conditions. In recent times, athletes have been known to use adaptogenic herbs to boost aerobic endurance and performance. For example, rhodiola minimizes oxidative stress-induced muscle damage in athletes for 24 hours after strenuous activity.
Rhodiola has been used by populations living high in the Himalayas to enhance their resistance to the effects of oxygen deprivation. This herb can actually help to increase oxygen to working muscles - which boost exercise capacity and overall conditioning.
Would you like to improve brain function? Brahmi is a wise choice to help rejuvenate the brain and nervous system. While supporting our intelligence, this powerful herb can improve our capacity to focus and withstand emotional stress. Gotu kola can improve brain function by improving blood flow and memory. Naturally, essential oils and other lifestyle habits like meditation can dramatically improve the quality of your life.
