We are going to discuss the medicinal effect of this plant called Kava. It has generated much conversation recently and we need to clear the air a bit. Before we do that though there are some common misperceptions that we need to set straight first.
Here are some well known facts that may not be common knowledge in America. We are an extensively developed nation with many resources and technologies, but sometimes we lack in common sense especially when it comes to medicinal herbs.
Scientists, researchers, and doctors would agree with the following statement:
Drugs treat symptoms but do NOT correct the underlying condition or cause.
We know this to be true and we accept this premise when we take a drug. Drugs may alleviate some pain or situation and may buy us some time but none of the pharmaceuticals are correcting physiological function that matches the healing function of medicinal herbs.
Medicinal herbs treat symptoms AND correct the underlying condition or cause.
You should really read that again….because I know you probably have not grasped it completely into your consciousness especially if you are the type that takes an aspirin when you get a headache…. Be honest now…smile. : )

Time For Another Brainwashing! This time let's get it clean!
We have been brainwashed to believe that "every ill deserves a pill" in the form of a pharmaceutical drug. This would be backward thinking if the rest of the planet is not using drugs, correct? Well, it's only backwards when you leave the country and see what everyone else is doing to cure their ills.
Most of the billions of people on the planet are NOT using a drug….they are using herbal medicine and have for thousands of years. These same people look at Americans and think we are insane! ….and some of us are!
We Americans have lost touch with what heals and have traded up to what sells. The sad truth is that it is killing us! Bold statement…yes and intended as such! It's a wake up call. It's time to really look at what our choices have produced by looking at the results.
Drugs have decreased our quality of life, shortened our life span, made us addicts, depleted our nutrients, destroyed tissues, disrupted normal physiological processes, and the list goes on and yet we still think it is okay to take them because our doctor tol
