Herb Therapy

“Our food is our medicine”

To improve the overall health of the body, herbs have been playing a major role for thousands of years.  Herbs help in healing wounds faster, make up for nutritional supplements, and also deliver a host of physical as well as spiritual benefits.  Herbs strengthen the immune system, lower blood sugar, and cholesterol, have anti-inflammatory properties, and prevent Alzheimer’s diseases and various types of cancer.  Every culture and every medicinal system, from the Native American Indian to Traditional Chinese Medicine, have used herbs for therapeutic purposes.  There are thousands of herbs with thousands of different uses, many of which are used in conventional medicine as well as for natural remedies.

Herb therapy is also particularly useful with those that suffer from a variety of physical conditions such as:

  • High Blood Pressure
  • Depression
  • Celestial Problems
  • Low Blood Pressures
  • Heart Disease
  • Cancer
  • Alzheimer’s
  • Nervous System Problems

We believe that herbs are designed to be used to treat the underlying causes of a disease in a patient.  Instead of looking at the signs and symptoms and then treating the disease, at the White Turtle Lodge we look at the whole picture, from lifestyle to spiritual imbalances, in order to prescribe the right treatment.

Once the cause of a condition is discovered, the herb is prescribed to restore the body’s natural balance.  In some cases herbs will work side by side with other treatments.  At the White Turtle Lodge we have a deep understanding in how different herbs work with the body to restore balance and health.

“Understanding our relationship with our humble herbs and spirit foods is key to a healthy life”

In Herb Therapy we need to determine:

  • Which herb is best used to cure a patient from disease or physical problem?
  • What herbs/ or spirit foods should be taken to prevent a patient from illness and disease long term and this is important?
  • The amount of herb/ or spirit food should be consumed to cure an illness.
  • How long a patient should consume a particular herb/ or spirit food.
  • How to prepare certain herb formulas – Tonic or tea form or within a dish.
  • How certain herbs/ spirit foods react with other foods if mixed together.
  • The strength of each herb or spirit food.
  • Determine blood type/ and genetics of patient.
“Remember that natural substances often work like drugs in the body”

The three important physical systems linked to herb therapy are:

The Immune System

The Digestive System

The Nervous System

“Rather just using herbs as source of medicine, use variety of herbs within your food”
