Herbѕ are plants with savory or aromatic properties that аrе used for flavоring and garnіshіng food, mediсinal purpoѕeѕ, or for fragrancеs; еxcludіng vegetables and other plants consumed for macronutrientѕ. Culinаry use typically diѕtinguiѕhеѕ herbѕ from spices. Hеrbs generally refers tо the leafy grееn оr flowering pаrts оf a plаnt (either fresh оr dried), whіle spices are usually drіed and produced frоm оthеr parts оf the plаnt, іnсludіng sееds, bark, rооtѕ and fruіtѕ.

It’s clеar that science ѕayѕ hеaling herbѕ can treаt a varietу of hеalth problems, but wе alsо wanted to call on the exрertѕ. Keep reаding for everything you need to know аbout hеaling hеrbs here.  

The first “W” I want to focus on is weight. It’s a struggle for most of us to get that slide on the scale to move in the right direction. I’m still in the process of trying to lose weight also. I believe the most important thing to do is eat if you want successful weight loss. Yes, read the sentence again – you read it correctly. You must eat to lose weight! You say, “What’s the catch?” Ah, you are clever. There is a small catch. It’s all about what you eat, not necessarily how much.

If I eat the right kind of food, it’s amazing how much of it I can consume! Don’t go off half-cocked and eat fourteen grilled chicken breasts! Common sense should come into play. The frequency of meals is also important. You don’t want too much time to pass between meals and snacks. I know it sounds backwards, but if you keep a regular schedule then your body won’t go into starvation mode and begin to store everything as fat. Five small meals a day is preferable to three large meals.

The second “W” is water. We all know that eight 8-oz. glasses of water a day is the recommendation. But what you may not know is when you should drink your water:

You should drink 16 oz. of water when you first wake up. This will help get your internal organs in gear for the day.

If you drink another 8 oz. before every meal (not snack), it aids digestion.

8 oz. of water before you take a bath or shower will help lower your blood pressure.

Before you go to bed, you should drink another 8 oz. of water to avoid a stroke or heart attack.

The final “W” is willpower. Mr. Webster defines this often misunderstood word beautifully. Willpower is a noun that means, “energetic determination.” Alright, so what is a noun? No, we’re not in English class, but I’m trying to make a point. Just play along – humor the old woman writing the article, okay? A noun is a person, place or thing. So, when I noticed that “willpower” is a noun, it baffled me. Is willpower a person, place or thing? It didn’t seem to fit.

I delved deeper for clarification. A noun is also an abstract idea. Ah, now we’re getting somewhere! So, willpower is not something solid, but abstract. You can’t touch it, taste it or smell it – yet, it exists.

I don’t believe that willpower means you have clinched teeth and spend every waking moment fighting off demons, as some think. It is, rather, an individual’s personal choice to embrace freedom from those same demons. Willpower is one’s ability to rise above and take the high road. We exercise willpower every time we choose to forgive, or love in spite of having been hurt. Willpower is spiritual – just as spiritual as faith itself.

It takes time to orchestrate all three of these “W’s” effectively, but with practice and patience on your part, you can do it!
