The biological terrain is the internal environment of the body and is the common demonimator in the entire disease process. Understanding biological terrain is key to understanding the basic actions of herbs and how to select effective remedies. This article introduces the six tissue states and corresponding basic actions of herbs.
The Disease Tree™ is one thing that sets the School of Modern Herbal Medicine apart from other training programs. This comprehensive framework helps a person understand where disease comes from and how to approach it from a holistic perspective rather than a symptom-treatment perspective. It also gives structure to everything a person learns about disease, health, the body, remedies, and assessment techniques.
Have you ever noticed that little children and sick animals tend to shun food when they are sick? There is a reason for this. Fasting or avoiding food for a period of time is actually a powerful aid to healing, not only from acute disease, but from chronic illness as well. The famous saying of Hippocrates, "Feed a cold, starve a fever," actually means "If you feed a cold, you will wind up having to starve a fever." This article, extracted from a chapter of my book, Coming Clean, explains the many benefits of fasting.
Given the pressures of modern life, none of us are immune to stress. Unfortunately, stress can weaken our immune system, cause us to lose sleep, reduce our immune response, lower our sex drive and contribute to numerous other health problems. Fortunately, herbs known as adaptogens can help to moderate the effects of stress so that we can cope better.
One of the best things we can do for our health is to eat more dark, green leafy vegetables and kale is one of the best. It is a powerhouse of nutrition, loaded with vitamins K, A and C, as well as significant amounts of various B-vitamins. It’s a good source of manganese, copper, calcium, potassium, iron and magnesium, too. As well as being loaded with antioxidants, it's also a cruciferous vegetable, which means that it contains compounds like indole-3 carbinol that help the liver break down toxic chemicals; giving it cancer preventing properties.
But how do you get kids to eat vegetables like kale, let alone most adults? Making kale chips is one way. This healthy snack can replace potato and corn chips and be just as flavorful.
