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.

Virus vs Bacteria

Do you know the difference?? I wasn't sure, but in doing a bit of research, I came upon some good information.

There are very few treatments, allopathic or natural, that can kill a virus outright. A virus is a mico organism that attaches to living cells and in replicating, spreads through the body. Smaller than bacteria, it can be just as dangerous.

Often more difficult to treat than bacteria. A virus lives inside a normal cell. Killing the virus often leads to damage to the host cell. They also can mutate, making them invulnerable to treatments that might have previously worked.

Viruses are tiny bits of nucleic acids that contain information & use our body's cells to create more copies of themselves. Smart little dudes ain't they??? They rely on a host to survive. Usually a virus must run it's course.

Bacteria, on the other hand is it's own living organism capable of growing & spreading on it's own. It also causes infection.

An antimicrobial is an agent that kills microorganisms or stops their growth. Antimicrobial medicines can be grouped according to the microorganisms they act primarily against. For example, anti-biotics are used against bacteria & anti-fungal are used against fungi.

So anti-virals can kill viruses? Anti-bacterials can kill bacterial infection? Makes sense to me!!
