Natural Health Miracles in Your Garden
A great way to save money and take care of your health is to have your own herb garden. You can actually learn how to grow your own food and make it available for you anytime.
Few tasks can be more rewarding and therapeutic than growing and preparing your own herbs. These are, after all, fascinating plants as each comes with its own traditions and folklore.
More than that, it also comes with medicinal and culinary uses. Put them on a sunny windowsill so that they will survive.
Make sure that they get at least five hours of sun each day. A window facing south or southeast would be the best choice.
Position them away from drafts and use a soil-less potting mix to avoid diseases. Also make certain that the mix is light so that water drains out well.
A good herb to have is oregano. This is commonly used as a culinary herb, but there’s more to it than you think.
It has also been used medicinally for decades. Tea from oregano can treat indigestion, bloating, urinary problems, and bronchial problems.
It also relieves fever and diarrhea. If you’ve been a smoker all your life, you know that your lungs are now getting the care that they badly need.
Spinach is also something you can consider. It grows best with ample moisture and a fertile, well-drained soil.
Grown for its edible leaves, this vitamin enriched plant is a great source of calcium, iron, and protein. Think about the good you can do to your bones when you have spinach in your diet.
Osteoporosis is a big health issue among the older members of society. You can finally do your skeletal system a favor by giving it all the calcium it needs to stay strong.
Lastly, the mugwort. This has many uses and was traditionally utilized as a remedy for digestive disorders and a tonic for various ailments. It improves one’s digestion and increases appetite.
Keep this around if you are extremely sensitive about the food you eat. If you need to gain weight because you are constantly getting sick, consider putting mugwort in your diet.
While you now have free time in your hands, you need to make sure you optimize this. Try to enjoy the taste of herbs.
In fact, with the right combination, your food becomes tastier and eating becomes a more pleasant experience. Eliminate the excessive need for prescription drugs.
When it comes to your health, natural is still the best choice. Get to know your herbs better and try to see which one helps you most.
