Don’t you think we are an over-medicated nation? We spend so much money on prescription drugs every year. These drugs are definitely saving lives, but sometimes these drugs are not fixing the root cause of the health issue. That’s where nature comes into the picture. Here is a list of 12 healing herbs and supplements that doctors now prescribe to their patients!

1.Heart Disease – Aged Garlic Extract

1-AGED-GARLIC-EXTRACT
Garlic has the ability to lower your blood pressure by causing your blood vessels to relax and dilate. This allows blood to flow more freely and reduces blood pressure.

2.Heart Disease – Red yeast rice

2-RED-YEAST-RICE
Red yeast rice can significantly lower levels of total cholesterol and specifically LDL, or “bad” cholesterol.

3.Arthritis – Fish oil

3-Fish-Oil
Fish oil is rich in Vitamin A and omega-3 fatty acids. Fish oil treats rheumatoid arthritis. It also reduces inflammation and morning stiffness.

4.Arthritis – Turmeric

4-TURMERIC
Turmeric is naturally anti-inflammatory. It contains anti-oxidants that help keep bones and joints healthy. Turmeric also detoxifies the body to remove free radicals that contribute to arthritis pain.

5.Headaches – Butterbur

5-BUTTERBUR
Butterbur has the substances petasin and isopetasin. They work to reduce spasms and reduce inflammation. These actions are thought to help prevent migraines and reduce migraine headaches

Magnesium plays an important role in keeping your metabolism running efficiently. Higher magnesium intake reduces risk of impaired glucose and insulin metabolism and slows progression from pre-diabetes to diabetes.

7.Depression – Ashwaganda

Ashwaganda, with its calming, relaxing, and sedative effects helps treat and relieve anxiety without having to use a prescribed medication. It has anti-anxiety, antidepressant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-arthritic properties that may be effective in reducing stress caused by physical and emotional fatigue.

8.Depression – Rhodiola

This herb helps in fighting depression and improving brain function. Rhodiola increases the sensitivity of your neurons, including two neurotransmitters serotonin and dopamine. These two neurotransmitters are known for increasing focus, memory, pleasure, and improving mood.

9.Irritable Bowel Syndrome – Fish oil

9-FISH-OIL
You can ease certain types of chronic pain by consuming foods or supplements that are high in omega-3 essential fatty acids. Omega-3s, commonly called “fish oil” because of their primary source, reduce the pain caused by inflammatory bowel disease and menstrual cramps.

Probiotics help in improving irritable bowel syndrome symptoms. They can regulate bowel function including motility, sensation, and immune function.
