Herbal Alternative Remedies

Herbal Alternative Remedies have been used successfully used for over 5000 years in many cultures. Traditional Chinese Medicine is an excellent example. I used Chinese Medicine when I began looking for natural ways to heal my many ailments constantly feeling fatigued, moody, emotional, angry, bloated, gassy, body pain, constipation, seasonal allergies and asthma. I began with acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Remedies,  along with Whole Food Therapy, and it was working! 

Herbal Medicine is common practice in Europe. The German Commission E  is a publication of 390 monographs which evaluate the safety and efficacy of herbs for prescribing in Germany. The scientific review board which is the governing body for herbal medicine in Germany, is the “Bundesinstitut für Arzeimittel und Medizinprodukte”.  The Commission E became known beyond Germany in the 1990s and is used as a reference book for doctors and herbalists.

Herbal Alternative Remedies

When using herbal alternative remedies to assist well-being, I start with addressing digestion because in my experience most people have digestive and liver stress.  Digestion is the foundation to our entire well-being. It feeds the body, which feeds the brain, which allows healthy, mindful thoughts and feelings. This gives us confidence and strength to pursue what makes us feel whole and connected.

Our digestion physically keeps us fueled, nourished, and in part cleansed through the gallbladder, which helps eliminate toxins through our bowel movements, thus cleansing our colon. Our gallbladder is needed to secrete the bile that helps us digest our fats. The beauty of herbs and food are they have five flavors and those flavors aid in healthy digestion among other things for good health. Bitter, Pungent, Sour, Sweet and Salty.

If there are gallbladder concerns then looking into a gallbladder cleanse would be very beneficial

Cleansing the gallbladder will also help with liver health. Bitter herbs and foods commonly used in both gallbladder and liver cleanses.

How to cleanse your liver with herbal alternative remedies

In today’s world we are exposed to so many different kinds of toxins and stress; environmental and some just from daily life. Because the liver has so many responsibilities I like to do a gentle liver cleanse daily. I drink a cup of Liver, Skin & Candida Free blend before one of my meals to aid in digestion. I drink Super Green Energy Blend in some fresh raw organic apple juice or water to allow my liver and blood to be gently cleansed and to provide me with lots of nutrients which are easily absorbed.

Cleansing foods such as soup broth, fresh vegetable juices, lemon water, and fermented foods; (raw sauerkraut, rejuvelac, and apple cider vinegar) for as long as I feel the need. When I finish cleansing, I slowly add protein and fats back into my diet and continue to drink the Liver & Candida Free Blend before my heaviest meal and my Super Energy Green Blend in the morning. This helps me feel focused and clear and gives me steady energy so I can move through my entire day without having a crash between 2:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. Our body has an internal clock known as the Circadian Rhythm.

If I feel the need to do a deeper cleanse I omit most fats and proteins and focus on more cleansing foods
