Welcome to my blog!!! I have been an herbalist & an aromatherapist for over 20 years!! My blog is over 10 years old & there are over 100 informative blogs here. Not only do I have hopes of teaching the masses, I too, have learned a lot during my research on different topics! There's always new & updated information in the herbal & essential oil worlds. There are blogs on herbs, essential oils, nutrition, supplements, different modalities of healing and just a little bit of everything!! Maybe in reading my blogs, just one person will come away with a bit of knowledge that they might be able to help themselves or another human being, I would consider that to be a great blessing.....

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. I am now in Arizona and I was asked again if I would be interested in starting another herbal business!! We now have Herbs 4 Health!! Providing numerous herbs....herbal blends....single essential oils...essential oil blends....minerals....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.

DISCLAIMER: All the information in these blogs do not diagnose, treat or heal any type illness or disease.

What IS a Trophorestorative????

New term? Old term? Not sure which it is, but I found this information valuable! Kinda makes me rethink some of the herbs I use in the blends & for myself!!
Trophorestorative by definition is an herb that is a nutritive restorative. It is normally associated with an affinity for an organ, or an organ system. It rectifies the deficiency and/or weakness pertaining to that organ. The effect is not necessarily temporary. The nourishment it provides results in a permanent restoration. It is a tonic, period. It rebuilds and strengthens. A true trophorestorative cannot harm or product side effects. You should be able to consume it for long periods, safely. Many herbs are nutritive, only some herbs are trophorestoratives. They are unique. They can actually restore a physical funciton of a debilitated organ or tissue.
Some examples of trophorestoratives are: nettle seed, land caltrops & crataeva nurvala. They can all restore the functions of a damaged kidney. I hadn't heard of these last 2 and now I know why, they are part of TCM and in the Ayurvedic herbal 'family'!

Avena sative (oatstraw), velvet beans (again in the ayurvedic system) & valerian are best suited for nervous systems.
Ashwagandha, licorice & astragalus take care of the endocrine system.

Trophorestorative herbs help in nourishment and restoration of organs. Various herbs are used for treating malfunctioning of an organ. But the use of herbs depends on the indication shown by them, you first have to judge the problem & the origin of said problem and give the herb accordingly.
There are quite a few highly effective trophorestoratives: avena sativa, blue cohosh, chickweed, dandelion, korean ginseng, horsetail, licorice, milk thistle, bilberry, burdock, damiana, false unicorn, hawthorn, indian pennywort, meadowsweet & spanish needle. We know, as herbalists, what organ or system these herbs target! Just keep in mind how beneficial they can be to the human body!!!
