Curing with Herbs: Superlative Solutions

Curing with Herbs: Superlative Solutions

Usually when someone points out the natural remedy as a solution to common ailments, we think “Immediately no,” with the assumption being that natural remedies would take days and months to work. That may not seem ideal when a trip to the corner store for a pack of Advil would only take 15 minutes. Also, if we have never tried these remedies before, where would we even find these herbs? On Amazon? 

Actually there are natural remedies for you, your neighbor, your favorite cousin and your best friend right in your community grocery store, local park and even in your community garden. 

Take a trip with me to your local spaces that you might not have known had healing remedies staring you right in your face.
