This is an interesting subject. People seem to confuse using the 40 vital nutrients your body needs with herbs which can help the body heal, but is really doesn’t go to the cause of the problem.
In 1920, a report was done in order to “standardize’ medicine. It was called the Flexnor report after the person who did the “research”. The new standard was drugs and surgery. Before that time, medical schools taught the traditional medications – herbology and homeopathy.
Herbs are natural (not a chemical made in a lab) and have healing properties.
Here is the article.

This is a special blend of oils. Why is it called Thieves?
The story of this blend of oils all centers around one event, the Bubonic Plague. During that time, there were four thieves who went from house to house to rob those who had died of the plague. After these thieves were captured and tried, a judge offered leniency if they would share how they were able to rob them but not be affected by the illness. It seems they had formulated a special combination of oils. They had been spice traders but when the shipping trade was blocked by the government, they chose to steal but they knew how to formulate protection from the plague.
Thieves offers it as an essential oil blend and as an important ingredient in a full range of home cleaning and personal care products, from dish soap to toothpaste.

I’ve heard and seen things about Aromatherapy. I never paid much attention to it and felt it was creating nice odors that people wanted in their house or felt it relaxed them.
Then I found out that in 1937, a french perfumer gave that name to essential oils which is actually traditional plant medicine.
Now that was something I’d be interested in finding out about. It is now called essential oils and is becoming popular again. Plant medicine has been around for thousands of years and was the only medicine until the 1880s when the drug companies were formed to make pharmaceuticals.
So what can plant medicine do? A lot of things, and its safe and works well.
Why do the essences of the plant create change? And what can it do?

Yes. I never knew how much cleaning my house made me feel tired and … well, I just didn’t want to do it. It was the chemicals that I used. Even when I bought brands in the health food store that were more natural then the many very toxic chemicals normally found on the shelves.
Here is an article on a Cleaning Product derived from a mix of essential oils (plant essense). I have used it myself and I enjoy using it. It not only cleans well, but it smells great.
Cleaning with Essential Oils, Cleaning without Toxins
How? One way is not to eat anything with toxins. Interesting idea isn’t it.
So one of the dubious foods that are toxic, or worse, we don’t know that interfering with food will do. I’m talking about GMOs. Genetically Modified Organisms, doesn’t sound very healthy to me.

There are a lot of remedies on the market that includes herbs. Of course, the first thing you should check is the quality of any supplement whether herb or vitamin. Cheaper brands are not necessarily going to give you quality ingredients that will give you results. Here is an article on this Buying Less Expensive Supplements – Is it Worth It?
But on the subject of herbs especially regarding neuropathy, one needs to know the following.
Herbs cannot be taken in some cases with certain medications. You need to check with your pharmacist to see if the herbs and your medications are compatible. Pharmacists have a database that they can check.
As an example: There are no clinical trials showing that any herb can help repair the nerve damage that is neuropathy. Nor can it build healthy nerves. They do have some value in increasing blood flow, or calming the body, but not in the actual repair of the nerve which is what causes the neuropathy symptoms.
There are many products being advertised as helping neuropathy with 4 or 5 different herbs extracts in them. It is questionable whether they have been tested together, and since there are no trials regarding neuropathy, questionable as to whether they will help or not.
A number of herbs taken together often causes stomach problems, such as heart burn. They can create more problems.
Check out all the herbs in a formula. Remember, this is not like a herb tea, made by boiling the herb leaves, or sprinkled in your salad. These are herb extracts in much more potent amounts then found in nature.
