Over the years I have had several businesses. It seems I can't get away from seeing if a certain herb or essential oil can help a fellow human and that's usually how it starts. So now, I am in Arizona, I was asked again if I would be interested in starting another herbal biz!! So we now have Herbs 4 Health!! Numerous herbal blends....single essential oils...essential oil blends....supplements....tinctures all to help the body to heal itself.
The information in these blogs is not meant in any way shape or form to plagiarize, for I have never said this is all MY work. It is a compilation of reputable informative websites, my 'go to' books I have always depended upon & my own knowledge. I gather & put together information to help people learn & this way they can come back here to help remind themselves of said information instead of 'where oh where did I find that on the world wide web'. Seems to me it's just better & easier.

Celery.....and we thought it was only good with peanut butter!!!
In Ayurvedic remedies, celery seed is commonly used as a diuretic, since fluid retention aggravates high blood pressure and other problems such as gout, arthritis, pre-menstrual syndrome and congestive heart conditions. It is also said to help in recovering from the common cold, coughs, sinus congestion, respiratory infections, bronchitis & laryngitis.
~Caution should be taken as the celery seed could cause stomach upset or diarrhea, in which case discontinue use. Pregnant women should not take celery seed without seeing a medical professional because of its strong diuretic properties.~
Celery may help in the treatment of arthritis and rheumatic disorders. It stimulates the thyroid & pituitary glands. It is believed to clear uric acid from painful joints.
Raw celery can help reduce high blood pressure even tho it is high in sodium & to act as a tonic for the liver. You can use grated, raw celery as a poultice for swollen glands.
The juice or an infusion of the seeds may be drunk to alleviate conditions such as sciatica. The juice can also help the body adapt to extreme heat conditions as well.
Celery root claims to be an aphrodisiac.
