Best Herbs And Spices For Natural Healing
Herbs and spices are nature’s natural version of pills and chemical potions. They’re concentrated doses of powerful healing nutrients and their flavor packs a punch just as strong!

The Indian herbal plant Tulsi has a lot of significance in the Hindu religion. The term "Tulsi" is used in the context of one who is absolutely incomparable. Tulsi has a lot of reverence for the Hindus. In fact, people worship Tulsi every day in the morning as well as evening time. Most homes will have a plant and it’s considered sacred, not least because of its many medicinal qualities.I am now using this exceptional herb in my clinic - as it has only very recently become available as a tincture - with wonderful results. I wonder why Tulsi isn't more popular in the West as its medicinal properties are incredible, and varied. Tulsi is rejuvenating, immune boosting, helps restore our body's negative reaction to stress, removes fluoride from water, has a wonderful effect on the adrenal glands and cardiovascular and nervous systems, and is anti-fungal, so it's a great herb to treat a candida overgrowth. Traditionally, many an Indian Grandma relied on a tea made from the leaves of Holy Basil to relieve indigestion and headaches. Now the firsts test are showing it might also inhibit breast cancer. A tea made of Holy Basil shrunk tumors by reducing their blood supply and stopping their spread. To aid in breast cancer treatment, drink the tea daily. (It must be ‘Holy Basil’, not another variety of basil.) Pour 2 cups boiling water over 10 to 15 fresh holy basil leaves and steep 5 minutes Remove the leaves before consuming. Or get it as a liquid tincture. If you grow it yourself at home, add the fresh leaves to your salad, stir fry, curry and smoothies. You probably won’t find Tulsi seeds or plants at your local nursery so ask them to order it for you, or look online. You’ll find it in health food stores as a supplement, tea or liquid tincture.

Saffron is a spice derived from the flower of Crocus sativus, commonly known as the "saffron crocus". Saffron crocus grows to 20–30 cm and bears up to four blossoms, each with three crimson stigmas (threads), and it takes over 150,000 blossoms to produce a kilo of saffron spice. The amount of labor involved in harvesting, which saffron insists on being done by hand - is why it is considered one of the world's most expensive spices. The plant's beauty is striking not only for its color but also its shape and style. Saffron's use as a medicine has been documented since antiquity. The important antioxidants saffron contains can help protect our bodies from oxidant-induced stress, cancers, infections and they also act as immune modulators. It’s been known to have many therapeutic applications in traditional medicines across the world as it acts as an antiseptic, antidepressant, antioxidant, digestive aid and anti-convulsant.Saffron has traditionally been used for respiratory complaints such as coughs, emphysema and asthma, and also for loosening phlegm. Saffron is effective when treating insomnia, gas, depression, Alzheimer’s disease, fright, shock, pain, heartburn, and dry skin. It’s also a good liver tonic, is used to treat diabetes, to help reduce the withdrawal from drugs and alcohol, and a good cardio tonic. Women have used saffron for centuries to ease menstrual cramps and PMS, while men use it to treat premature ejaculation and infertility. For this reason, saffron has the reputation of being an aphrodisiac. To use at home, make the dried stigmas into a tea and drink daily or you can get as a liquid tonic from your health food store. Add the threads to your cooking to impart a sexy and unique flavor.

Turmeric is part of the ginger family, Zingiberaceae. It is native plant in southwest India, and needs temperatures between 20 and 30°C and a considerable amount of annual rainfall to thrive. Turmeric has a peppery, warm and bitter flavor, and a mild fragrance slightly reminiscent of orange and ginger. And while it is best known as one of the ingredients used to make curry, it’s looking like this golden spice may be a whole lot more than a pretty color. For starters, it may prevent colon cancer and Alzheimer's disease, and it’s a good general immune system booster due to its high antioxidant capacity - mopping up nasty free radicals. In India, where turmeric is widely used, the prevalence of four common U.S. cancers - colon, breast, prostate and lung - is 10 times lower. Thanks to its strong anti-inflammatory properties and its positive effect on the liver, turmeric can help calm digestive trouble and get your stomach feeling good again. Mix a teaspoon of dried, or a tablespoon of freshly grated turmeric into about 30 ml or so of warm water. Add a little sweetener like raw honey or maple syrup, if you like. Grow it yourself in the more tropical climates, or buy the rhizome fresh from your Farmers' market or green grocer, or take a capsule. Turmeric is used to make up Jamu Asih Kinasih, the Indonesian love potion that is said to bring a whole new meaning to the words 'love making'.
