In last week’s Prep Blog review I’ve told you about some good to have plants in your summer garden what led me to the topic of this week’s Prep Blog Review – reasons to grow a medicinal garden.
Knowing and growing your own medicinal herbs has many benefits. Using medicinal plants for healing purposes is as old as mankind itself. In search for cures for their ailments, our ancestors looked up for drugs in nature. Why not return to our roots?
Sleep is absolutely critical to your health, but many of us just can’t seem to get enough.
When you’re asleep, your body reboots. It focuses all of its energy on healing and revitalizing, because it doesn’t have to focus on walking, talking, thinking, eating, or any of the other myriad activities that it has to keep up with during the day.
Whether you can’t manage to get to sleep at all or you sleep lightly and/or wake up frequently, you’re likely not firing on all cylinders and your body is paying for it.
Fortunately, there are some truly effective natural remedies for sleep disorders out there, so you don’t have to depend on manmade sleep aides that are expensive, unhealthy, and may not be available if SHTF.
OK, so this is a huge topic that seems to divide people.
Within the year prior to this post, Florida became one of the 28 states to legalize medical marijuana.
Do I think that’s a good thing? Yes, but this is an article about whether or not you should grow medical marijuana, not about what my (or anybody’s) political views are. Good thing, right? Lately, that’s a powder keg that will blow up any family reunion.
We’ll simply discuss whether or not marijuana is a good crop to grow for medicinal purposes in your survival garden. And to that end, I’m going to discuss it just like I do any other medicinal herb – does it have enough benefits to merit a spot in your garden?
Finally, it’s on you to decide what suits you!
Before Europeans discovered the Americas and introduced such diseases as chicken pox, the flu, smallpox, and measles, Native Americans were relatively disease-free and, for the most part, lived long, healthy lives, unless of course famine struck.
Native American remedies for existing illnesses were made of indigenous medicinal plants, many of which were highly effective.
Unlike modern medicine, sick patients weren’t just handed medicine until they either got better or died. Instead, Native Americans took care of their health holistically; it was strongly linked to spirituality.
