Natural herbal remedies have been used for their medicinal properties for thousands of years by Africans, Asians, Indians, Native Americans, Italians, Spaniards, and English people, you name it. With the invention of big pharmaceutical companies, the benefits of herbal remedies have been systematically quieted as to not interfere with the profit making ability of big pharmaceutical companies.

Many of us have lost the understanding of the value and the benefits of the health supporting herbs and foods that life has blessed us with.

When sickness did happen to overcome us, botanical material was used as herbal medicine to successfully treated illness.

Many modern synthetic drugs like aspirin, morphium, and tamoxifen, were derived from herbal (botanical) sources used in herbal remedies to treat the same illnesses the herbal remedies were used for.
