In ancient times, when our great-grandparents fell sick, they would prepare remedies using herbs and plants from their backyard. These plants were more than just food but have amazing healing properties that restore our health and vitality.
However, many of us living in the modern world have lost our connection with nature and its ability to heal.
Now, with growing concerns on the abuse of over-medication and side effects of pharmaceutical drugs, more and more people are going back to their roots of natural based medicine.
