    Default Your Medicine Is In Your Pantry

    Karta Purkh Khalsa
    March 29 2019

    Food has been the medicine of humanity since the dawn of time. Many herbs that we associate only with seasoning our food are, in fact, potent herbal medicines.

    The distinction between herbal food and herbal medicine is actually quite subjective. There is a wide area of overlap with the two categories. If you think of all the plants we consume, for whatever purpose, as being on a spectrum, from food on one end, to medicine on the other, you will see what I mean.

    Absolutely food is medicine, especially herbal plant foods, like parsley, dill, thyme, etc. However, the enormous amounts of herbal plant food one would have to eat to provide "medicinal" benefits is a little off-putting for me. For example, 2 - 9 grams of parsley daily would be needed to experience full medicinal benefits. How can anyone eat this much parsley per day?

    Great answer...sheep! A friend gave her dog parsley to freshen its breath, which parsley is known for. But, the dog got sick. Vet told my friend too much parsley not good for dogs. Can't remember exactly why. It's high in oxalate, so people with kidney stone problems need to be careful not to eat too much.
