I picked 2 mason jars worth of wild mint 2 summers ago, and thought I'd run out, I have tons left. I was a naturalist at one point in my past for the national forest, and I gave medicinal and edible plant hikes at times. I'm getting a garden together this year, I'll try adding in a few herbs, including the ones you linked to.Hey , I'm going to try it. I already have a few of those herbs in my yard. Mint for sure and don't know yet what else survived the winter.

Anyway....I would love to explore the more natural way of curing common ailments....
This is a great thread Barb!!
I have been experimenting with natural medicinal remedies because I don't have medical insurance and here is one thing that has REALLY worked!
I have arthritis that was becoming very painful so I looked up Ancient Chinese Remedies and found out that celery seed is a well known treatment. I bought a big jar of celery seed from a discount store and began putting it in almost every thing I ate. Within two days.....the pain was much less and the inflammation was almost gone!! Now....the pain is completely manageable when before.....I was totally consumed with pain daily. Praise God for His provision....
Also, I was having trouble with water retention and began using pure cranberry juice as a diaretic. I drink a cup once or twice a day. It's all but completely gone now!
Tyler....would you be willing to share the medicinal plants you know with us here?? I would really appreciate it. I don't trust the medicines the multi-billion dollar drug companies come up with anymore. The lists of side effects are as long as your arm and I have always felt that chemicals of any kind are soooo dangerous and what is making people sick. I don't even use commercial toothpaste anymore. The list of chemicals is unbelievable on everything from shampoo to soap.

I agree, I have been studying the natural way of healing for some time. I was in the first Gulf War and got very sick when I got back and it was progressively getting worse and worse, to the point where I was in so much pain that I could hardly get out of bed and my knees would give out on me when I walked. I went to various doctors and they basically said they could do nothing, or what they did do, did nothing. I decided if I wanted to live and be healthy I was going to have to cure myself. I assumed that I had been the subject to some sort of poisining and started taking herbs that clean out toxins. After finding the right herbs, I was well within a couple months and haven't been sick since.
WOW Don that's so awesome!!
Does anyone know how to do a metal cleanse?? I have worked with stained glass (lead and copper) for a few years and have stopped. I have also done a candida cleanse twice and that REALLY helped clear out my mind. I know that metals settle in joints and I want to rid myself of all the lead I must have been absorbed. Anyone know??
Good day everybody!So Tyler, if you are around we all would really appreciate your input into medicinal herbs . Thanks.
Good day everybody!
The dandelion plant and root has many uses, and it grows like a weed!
We battle with this plant every year, and one unfortunate person on the board is restricted from using the necessary means to rid their lawn of the terrible dandelion.
I'm going to start picking a dandelion plant for my 2 daily salads, they sure are bitter tasting though.

I wonder if putting cinnamon in my coffee in the morning works the same as I always do that cause I love the taste of cinnamon and I also put it in my oatmeal with dried cranberries.Arthritis: 1-2 teaspoons of celery seed per day.
Mix 1 teaspoon of honey with one teaspoon cinnamon into warm water. Drink every morning. After a month there will be a marked decrease in pain and an increase in mobility
