Nature's pharmacy

I am very interested in learning more about natural medicines, drugs, and herbs that have been time tested and used for generations. I feel that many of these drugs and treatments have been lost, ignored, or purposely buried.

Is it true that Willow bark is a natural pain killer if you chew on the inner bark of the tree?

The Caduceus of Mercury has become a common medical symbol in the Health care sector.

One theory is that it used to represent a stick to wind parasites around in order to pull them out of the body.

Another theory is the snake venom had medicinal purposes, and or pharmocological affects.

My one friends said he observed a Yogi in a remote forest mountain area in India trying to collect a wild cobra in a basket to take it to the temple (dedicated to cobras). At one point the man poured water into the cap of the container and let the cobra drink the water from the cap while he was holding the cap in his hand! then the yogi took a sip from the same cap. Then the yogi picked up the snake and pit it in the basket. My friend asked him why he drank from the same cap as the snake, and the yogi said it helped make him immune to the cobra bites…

I did not know that Horse racers in China and America have been busted for injecting their race horses with cobra venom, very fascinating.

At the end of this video they talk about the reseach that is being done with Copperhead venom, and how it may help destroy cancer cells and tumors.

I dont recommend anyone repeat the things done in this video. But I do find it mindblowing that there are so many unique forms of medicine that many people never hear about.

I have heard of Doctors using Bee stings to help slow the progression of parkinsons disease.

Please share any plants, herbs, animals, unique medical treatments, or anything else that uses the gifts of mother nature to help heal, prevent sickness, and promote wellness.

Although herbs can play a significant role in inducing lucid dreams, they work best to induce lucid dreams when used with other lucid dreaming techniques, especially the MILD (Mnemonic Induced Lucid Dreaming) approach. Also, it would be best to research correctly before you start consuming any herb and use that in a moderate amount."
