The HERBAL MEDICINE CHEST
Republished April 18, 2017
Hello All- Just sharing some secrets for fighting infections, inflammation and viruses. As a prior health food store owner, we recall how we would sell out of goldenseal too, because even drug addicts have learned that it is so effective that it can remove traces of illegal drugs from the urine. Now while I certainly don't recommend it for this purpose, it is noteworthy that if a drug addict knows about goldenseal, surely you should be able to use it to head off colds and virus! I even use at the first sign of a dental infection. What you may not realize or remember is that all pain has at it's root infection of some kind, unless a sports injury or something like that. So if you suffer from fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis or other medical challenges ailment like that, this is still your go-to herb combination.
Thus, in my humble but accurate opinion (lol) , no kitchen should be without these herbs in both forms. They are a little pricy, so buy a small amount to store in advance of need.
