Quick disclaimer… I’m not a doctor, scientist, or herbal specialist, and I am not telling you to stop your medications and flush them down the toilet or to eat mushrooms out of your yard. Please consult your doctor, not google, if you are unsure about the side effects of supplements or medicinal plants. Everyone’s body is different. Therefore everyone reacts differently to things.
Treatment with medicinal plants is proven very safe as there are minimal to no side effects.
Now, moving along…
As I said in my visions for 2022 post, there will come a time where you may not be able to get medications due to shortages or price increases. What would you do if you couldn’t get your needed blood pressure medicine or your heart medication due to shortages? It’s good to have a backup plan just in case.
People don’t realize how bad it will get….
In several visions, I’ve even been shown medicinal plants for keeping sickness and disease away. When covid first started, I was shown that a large dose of Vitamin C and garlic regularly would protect against and aid in the healing of covid.
I’ve used and researched supplements and healing herbs for years and have found really great benefits. So I’ll share some of my favorites, their healing properties, and their benefits with you.
People trust/rely too much on science, and pharmaceuticals. What happens when you don’t have these to rely on? Prepare…There are other safe and effective healing methods out there.
Medicinal plants, also known as medicinal herbs, have been utilized since prehistoric times and even used in traditional medicine for their healing properties. So cool, right?!
Make sure pets don’t get into them; some medicinal plants may be toxic to pets. Just double-check.
