Natural Remedies

Modern life has become so complex and demanding, ever since the emergence of modern day drug medicine “grandma's” home remedies have become old- fashioned right? The times we are living in have certainly changed, but home herbal remedies are still being used and are still much better than over the counter drugs and medicines.

Simple herbs were given to us by Our Creator, and having a knowledge of them could help in times of sickness. Natural remedies not only have natural healing properties, but they also have restorative properties. If more people could cooperate with nature, most of today's diseases could have been prevented.

Pure air, sunlight, abstemiousness, rest, exercise, proper diet, the use of water, trust in divine power,--these are the true remedies. Every person should have a knowledge of nature's remedial agencies and how to apply them.

Most people would rather use drugs because they provide a “quick fix”, however; their impact on the body leaves it overworked and often has side effects which in most cases leads to other forms of disease. Drug medication is expensive and often out of reach for those who are poor, while most natural remedies are accessible from our homes and from ordinary stores.

For years plants like peppermint, known to the Basotho people as “kwena” have been used in relieving colds and flu, morning sickness, nausea, some nervous disorders as well as an helping to alleviate pain. Among other functions, the herb affects circulation and also serves as an anesthetic.

Charcoal is another powerful property from nature because of its adsorbtive (binds with) nature. Charcoal binds itself to poisons and neutralizes them. It can also be taken to stop intestinal gas and is also good for diarrhea.

Aloe Vera, a broad leafed plant with a bitter taste and gel inside, commonly known as “lekgala” to Africans living in South Africa, is used to help the skin in cases of acne and helps to clean the colon and also lubricates the stomach.

Cayenne pepper is a stimulant, and is antispasmodic. It affects the heart, circulation, stomach and kidneys. Dr. Christopher, a well known herbalist of the mid-twentieth century said that if he only had two herbs, he would select charcoal and cayenne. Cayenne is helpful in atherosclerosis and bleeding varicose veins. Cayenne should however; not be taken excessively for prolonged periods as it can induce kidney damage and should never be cooked because it becomes an irritant when this is done.
