1 – I don’t believe God would create this world without a means to heal ourselves.
I don’t know what you believe about the formation of our world, but if you believe, as I do, that it was created by a loving God, then we really need to follow the logic.
Would a God who loves us create us and then just drop us here on the earth alone to experience lives of sickness and suffering without the means to heal ourselves?
I don’t believe in that god. I believe in the one who created our bodies with an amazing ability to heal themselves. We only need the fuel to do so.
And what did God create on the earth for us? Plants. They are both our food and our medicine.
2 – It has worked for thousands of years.
Modern/western medicine has only been around for a relatively short period of time. Yes, it is all that most of us have known, but a couple hundred years is a tiny fraction of the span of human history.
How did people survive without the medicines we know today?
They used what the earth provided. Plants have incredible powers to keep us healthy and give our bodies what they need to heal. Whether it was peppermint tea for an upset stomach or aloe on a burn, our ancestors knew which plants were good for which ailments, and they weren’t afraid to use them.
Some of the “old remedies” we scoff at today actually hold a lot of truth, and if we gave them a chance, we might be surprised at how effective they are.
3 – It has worked for me.
So knowing something once worked for other people is only worth so much, am I right?
We need personal experiences.
I get it. I was a skeptic too … until I tried natural methods.
I reached a point where it was either try the natural ways, or I was going to be medicated for probably the rest of my life. I had nothing to lose, so I did some research and gave it a shot, not really expecting a whole lot.
But it worked!
And then I tried a natural remedy for something else, and it worked. And then for yet another ailment, and it worked.
It has literally been a string of success after success after success. Sure, those successes don’t always come immediately. Sometimes, I have to try a few different things, but that’s okay because I know my body is actually healing and not just having symptoms masked by a drug.
I am 38 years old, and I have not taken a prescription drug in more than 10 years. For that matter, I have not taken and over-the-counter drug in several years.
I feel better than I did in my 20s with fewer headaches and more energy.
That is the power of plants.
