It’s very rightly said that if Nature has created the problem, it has also created the solution. You just need an observant eye to catch on. In the mountains of Himachal Pradesh where I’m from there is a famous saying that the antidote of a poisonous tree grows right beside it. One just needs to find out which one the cure is.
Similarly, if Nature has created disease and pathogens, it has also created natural products and herbs which can help us to manage them. Herbs like Turmeric, Mushroom, and Cannabis are being used in India since Vedic times to cure various types of diseases. For example, Turmeric has excellent anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties. It is used in different forms as a food additive, natural antibiotic, and in paste form to take care of ailments ranging from common cold and fever to skin problems. Recent research suggests that the active ingredient in turmeric known as Curcumin is a potent antibiotic and antioxidant which can be used not only as an antipyretic and for accelerating muscle growth but also for treating diseases like Cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, and Dementia.
Curcumin, fortunately, is just the starting. Many herbs, natural supplements and food additives like Lycopene, Wheatgrass, and Mistletoe can be used to take care of the side effects of Cancer treatment as well as cure the disease. The use of these herbs and natural compounds can also improve your lifestyle and take care of many day-to-day problems. The most important thing? There are no side effects of these herbs which mean you can use them without any fear. Even if they don’t actually cure the disease, they can atleast take care of the fringe effects and help you to manage the impact of the ailment on your body.
