There are many ailments and diseases that can be alleviated with the use of medicinal herbal remedies. Their number increases as research are conducted on the properties of already-known herbs and as others are being discovered.

Because of didactic criteria, we have followed a specific anatomical ordination when classifying herbs on this site. However, some ailments do not affect any particular organ or part of the body but act on the whole organism. Such is the case, for instance, with drug addiction, allergy, or cancer listed below.

Drug addiction is one of the present times’ more dangerous ailments—or so we consider it—. Interestingly, most addiction is caused by substances extracted from herbs and chemically processed in laboratories and factories. Thus, addiction to those toxic substances derived from herbs, such as cocaine or heroin, can be healed with other herbs.

All herbs recommended for nervousness and anxiety are very beneficial in treating drug addiction when combined with other physical and psychological remedies. Socially accepted drug addiction, such as tobacco addiction and alcoholism, will also benefit from phytotherapeutic treatment; however, these treatments are effective only when giving up Smoking or drinking and adopting a healthy lifestyle.

Plants, including medicinal herbs—and food—can produce an allergic reaction. However, as mentioned below, they can also contribute to the treatment, especially in preventing allergic diseases.

The care of cancer is one of the significant challenges to medical science. Here again, we find herbs. The National Cancer Institute of the United States has been systematically analyzing for several decades, with a strict scientific rigor, all plants on the planet in search of anticancerous substances.

Several anticancerous active components have already been identified. On the other hand, the chronic use of certain medicinal and/or nutritious plants has been proven valuable in preventing cancer.

To all reading this article, we can honestly state that there are herbal remedies for all ailments, either to heal them, prevent them, or alleviate them.

Herbal Remedies for Various Conditions

Burns – These are lesions caused by heat action on the tissues. Those of first-degree redden the skin; those of second-degree cause blisters; those of third-degree cause scars due to necrosis and tissue destruction. Herbal remedies are first applied on burns of the first or second degree to protect the skin and promote its healing. Aloe and tepezcohuite extracts are excellent wound healers, with which very satisfactory esthetic results are achieved. Its use is being slowly introduced to in-hospital surgery services for severe burns.

Allergy – The allergy treatment demands that one discover the causative agent and stop the body’s allergic reaction. Using these plants, adopting a healthy lifestyle, and following a diet with the highest possible amount of raw vegetables (milk and dairy products promote allergic reactions) can be an excellent complement to the allergy desensitizing treatment.
