This page that I just discovered is superb and an absolute “must read” for anyone interested in herbal remedies! I had to share – and am sure that this will be a popular post. There are 55 remedies – each one for a different complaint – so the list of ailments covered seems to include everything under the sun! The link is below my commentary.
One thing I really like about the original post is that they have sought to include remedies for which there has been actual scientific research done and some significant conclusions drawn. Their descriptions include summaries of scientific reports and the commentary of eminent persons in the field – although, I have to say, I would have liked to see reference links to the actual studies for that final touch!
Anyway the list of herbs includes many well-known herbal favorites – such as lavender, ginger, gingko, garlic, cranberry, chamomile, evening primrose, St. John’s wort, ginseng, tea and turmeric. There are also a few lesser known herbs including black cohosh and chaste tree.
Here’s something to consider: It is very difficult and expensive to obtain “scientific proof” that a remedy works. Partly for this reason, many of these ancient herbal remedies, despite having been in popular use for centuries or even thousands of years, are considered “unproven”. But would people continue to use a herb for a thousand years for a specific purpose if it didn’t do anything? It just doesn’t seem very likely to me.
Anyway without further ado, here is the amazing list of The 55 Best Herbal Remedies (For Just About Anything)
