Herbs have long been considered as food for the body. They are a valuable source of natural nutrition and contain varying amounts of vitamins and minerals. When used properly, they may have specific healing effects. Even though we know that every plant was put on the earth for a reason, it does not always mean that it was meant for our bodies to ingest, take daily or rub on our skin.
Just because poison ivy is a natural plant, does not mean that we eat it, nor do we rub it on our skin. This is exactly why herbs must be researched carefully, studied and taken sporadically.
Enjoy reading about herbs and always check with your holistic or traditional health care practitioner before trying anything new.
