NaturHeal

Where people share stories on natural health and wellness for the mind, body and spirit.

New NaturHeal Website

Dear WordPress friends:

We have moved!

After starting NaturHeal from WordPress.com and realizing how much more we could do using WordPress as a content management tool, we’ve finally decided to migrate to an independent WordPress.org installation and ultimately a more permanent home for all natural health and wellness enthusiasts. 

Our new website is at:

 http://www.naturhealonline.com

Feel free to peruse the remaining content you see on our WordPress.com site, but of course all new posts, articles and user comments will now appear at our new site.

Thanks for reading and I hope to see you at our new site soon….

Friendship – The Daily Tonic

Oats

A re-cap of the healing powers of one of the regulars on millions of breakfast tables today provide surprising and insightful “food for thought” (no pun intended). 

Oats are known for its properties as an antidepressant, as a nervine for all stress, and a sedative to help you sleep better.  Oats can also used as a tonic for impotence; and as a tonic for strengthening cardiac functions.
 

Buchu

South AfricaNative to South Africa, the word Buchu is from the Hottentot word for the plant, bookoo.  The leaves are mixed with oil and used as a perfume in Africa. Buchu is part of the cultural heritage of the San and Khoi people. 

In the western world, Buchu is well regarded for its medicinal properties of acting as a diuretic & urinary antiseptic.  It is also used to treat acute catarrh; Cystitis, urethritis, and prostatis. Buchu is a low, white or pink-flowered shrub. Buchu leaves are mainly collected while the plant is flowering and fruiting, and are then dried and exported from Cape Town.

The bulk of the Buchu exported to London from South Africa eventually finds its way to America, where it is used in certain proprietary medicines.

To prevent the wholesale destruction of the wild Buchu plant, the South African government has mandated that no person is permitted to pick or buy Buchu without a valid license.
