This is the reason why, we are looking towards the use of natural elements, to keep us healthy and fit. That is because we have understood the fact that chemical-based drugs are efficacious on a short-term basis, but they do not heal us long-term. Besides, there is always the chance of dangerous side effects. And so our health is ruined, because we could not prevent ourselves from popping that pill.
Ancient remedies, on the other hand, have been passed down through centuries. Many of us consider these remedies to be quack remedies, because many of them have not been subjected to scientific research, and a stamp of experienced researchers telling you, all right, it is useful to add a lot of cinnamon to your diet, because that has been scientifically proven to cure 99% of bacterial and viral infections.

Best, you are going to be cured from the root, and the effects are going to be long-term.
No matter what ailment you suffer from, you can always do something with a little bit of knowledge, and a little bit of help from nature to enhance your well-being and good health.
Many of us living in the cities are terrified of picking up any useful herbal plant material growing wild and which we encounter when we are on open-air ambles, because we know that they have been contaminated from lead from vehicle exhausts, and also could have been sprayed with agri-chemicals. Also, we do not have the herbal lore, which was taught to our ancestors, by their ancestors. There was a time when every proud housewife worth her salt knew all about herbs, spices and natural remedies and had a stillroom in which she used to brew herbal remedies to keep our family healthy and happy, and natural ointments to keep them youthful looking.
Gathering herbs from the wild can only be done by those botanists and herbalists will have extensive knowledge of the beneficial points of plants. So that is the reason why a large number of the plants which I am going to describe to you in this book can be easily found in your local market.
