The Catholic Home, Episode 6: Health and Healing with Herbs

Saint Hildegard Von Bingen writes in Causae et Curae:

“It happens that certain men suffer diverse illnesses. This comes from the phlegm which is superabundant within them. For if man had remained in paradise, he would not have had the flegmata within his body, from which many evils proceed, but his flesh would have been whole and without dark humor [livor]. However, because he consented to evil and relinquished good, he was made into a likeness of the earth, which produces good and useful herbs, as well as bad and useless ones, and which has in itself both good and evil moistures.”

In this episode of The Catholic Home we welcome Jacinta and Stephen Mocko of Eureka Wellness, Australia, who share some of their specialized knowledge as to which herbs are good and useful for various ailments.

There is no need to be victim to the “mainstream medical paradigm” with all its harmful side-effects given God has provided us a wealth of plants for our food and our medicine! As an introduction to the subject of herbal medicine, we aim to share a few extremely-effective herbal-remedies for the more common health challenges that tend to arise. It is our hope that in addition to providing some immediately useful knowledge, that you will be inspired to expand and build up a comprehensive natural-medicine arsenal in your own home, for the benefit of your own family and your local Catholic community.

If you haven't experienced success in your attempts at utilizing herbs for healing, in this episode you will find out the reason why this may be the case. You will also learn how to render “the common cold” no longer common for you, treat bee stings even for the most allergic, and hear a few other secrets from the experts.
