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.

The entire potato, inside & out is valuable & beneficial for your health, believe it or not! This plant draws some of the highest concentration of macro & trace minerals from the earth. Potatoes are also high in potassium, rich in Vit. B6, copper, Vit. C, manganese, phosphorus, niacin & pantothenic acid. They are also excellent sources of amino acids, especially lysine in its bio active form. Lysine is a powerful weapon against cancers, liver disease, inflammation & viruses such as Epstein-Barr & shingles which are behind rheumatoid arthritis, joint pain, autoimmune disease & more.
Potatoes can be your allies if you are looking to fight chronic illness, fend off liver disease, strengthen your kidneys, soothe your nerves & digestive tract, reverse Chron's, colitis, IBS or peptic ulcers.
They are a great natural source of soluble & insoluble fiber. They contain a variety of phytonutrients that have an antioxidant activity. Other health improving compounds include carotenoids, flavonoids & caffeic acids. They also have been known to lower blood pressure.
So see, there's tons of reasons to eat these lovely little dudes LOL. The potatoes themselves are very healthy, it's what we put on them that can be bad for us....oh no!!!!
