The use of herbs to remove pathologies was first documented over 4,000 years ago in ancient Egypt. This systematic, and scientific approach to treating the body with herbs, barks, roots, and leaves became the foundation for modern medicine. Sadly, over the last century, nature's healing plants have been replaced with synthetic chemicals, with disastrous consequences.
Throughout the ancient world herbal tonics, lotions and tinctures were routinely, and successfully, used to promote health. The father of modern medicine, Hippocrates, precisely documented how to use the properties of plants to bring the body back into balance and good health.
Plants contain carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen in a format the body understands. Iron that has been assimilated into the electric and biological structure of the burdock plant is easy to absorb. But, iron straight from the earth, ferrous sulfate, binds the intestine, blocking a natural detoxification route.
Many modern pharmaceuticals are inspired by plants and extracted from nature. Pharmaceutical companies even sponsor expeditions into remote jungles looking for new medicinal plants. But, to patent and protect their discoveries, and maximize profits, they create chemical alternatives in the lab.
These synthetic alternatives are made by copying and manipulating natural substances, to enhance effects, but stronger isn't better. Plants and herbs support the body to come back into balance by restoring natural processes. Synthetic chemicals often suppress symptoms of illness, ignoring the root cause, while increasing toxicity.
Cleansing, Detoxing & Nourishing
Herbs provide 'tools' with which natural processes can be fine-tuned or regulated. By combining physical cleansing with the detoxification of impurities, and targeted nutrition, the body can restore cellular health. Dr. Sebi developed packages of herbal formulations to selectively combine precise quantities of herbs and engineer a profound rejuvenating experience.
Combining cleansing and detoxifying herbs with nourishing and revitalizing herbs creates an environment in which the body can repair damage and build healthy new cells. Cleansing the blood, bone, and spleen rejuvenates red blood cell production, enhancing oxygenation. Clearing mucus and inflammation from detoxification organs (skin, liver, gallbladder, lymph, kidneys, colon) and nourishing the immune system is foundational to ridding the body from disease.
