This site is the consequence of my close encounter with CLL. Within four months of the diagnosis, there was a rapid deterioration in the condition of a loved one. The doctor suggested starting treatment. But at 75, we wanted to spare him the pain, side effects and discomfort of the treatment. Having nothing to lose, we scoured the internet for anything that would help us. We came across various reports that suggested that wheatgrass helped CLL patients. That started my journey into the exploration of herbs and their effects on our health. This site is the result. I am happy to say, he is doing fine. He is not cured, but we have definitely been able to keep it in check. It is almost eight years now, and we have not had to start treatment.
More on natural remedies to manage CLL

In the search for natural ways to deal with CLL, I came across a wealth of information. I realised that each of us are individually responsible for our health. Man is essentially a product of nature, and he can best maintain health by living in harmony with nature. Disease results when this harmony and balance is upset. While modern medicine places more importance on treatment, I found that herbalists respect the body and try to help it heal itself. Herbalists believe that the body holds inherent self-correcting tendencies to heal. Herbs are perceived as acting in synergy with the body to effect improvement and sometimes even cure.

Herbal medicine is a universal practice among all of the world's traditional medical systems. Herbalists believe that everyone can benefit from using herbs. They believe that one need not use herbs only when sick. Instead, people can evolve towards a state of wellness and improved health by using herbs on a daily basis, in which case a person is likely to have fewer chances of being ill. Natural remedies help even in the case of serious diseases like cancer. Even though the primary treatment for cancer rests with modern medicine, herbal therapy provides a cancer patient with significant relief from the symptoms. By adopting a herbal lifestyle, we can decrease the incidence of the disease, and help the person suffering from cancer, achieve some degree of tranquillity and harmony.

Natural Remedies

Virtually all societies and cultures have used herbs for their medicinal properties. The interest in, and the need for using herbs and natural remedies, has been growing enormously. Respect for the human body is at the root of all herbal treatment. Herbs are often seen as the last resort - once all other avenues of treatment have been exhausted. This is where we are wrong. Natural food when taken on a regular basis, helps to stimulate the body's own healing abilities by cleansing and rebalancing. The advantage of natural medicines is their ability to return the body to a state of health without any risks and damaging side effects. The use of medicinal herbs in healing is not exclusive to humans; when an animal in the wild gets sick, it is said to stop eating and chew on some healing herbs until it feels better.

While modern medicine attempts to cure the problem, natural medicine goes to the root of the problem and tries to cure the cause. This is why it takes longer but it is most effective. Natural remedies are best used as a preventive measure. The ayurvedic tradition believes that your lifestyle - eating habits, work, social life, and even sexual activities are all major determinants of health. Hence, we need to adopt a holistic approach towards our health.

This site is an attempt to provide information and knowledge about various herbs and their health benefits. I have also added information on some health issues and natural remedies that can help treat them. Any feedback is most welcome.
