When I came here in the States, was seven months old pregnant with our first child so I brought with me some medicines that I was comfortable using. Some of those are herbal medicines that I grew up using. In the place where I grew up in, we never really went to the doctor or hospital unless it's a quite serious situation. We always have a medicinal plants in our backyard to cure illnesses. I'll give you one specific example of the herbal plant that we used to cure wound, the oregano. We never used that plant to cook so when I came here in the States, I was surprised to know that it is being used for cooking purposes.
We also used some beauty products that are Asian in origin. I remember some of the colleagues I knew were very fond of using the Chin Chun Su cream (not sure if I remember the name correctly). It did work great on their faces so I tried it too but it wasn't something that I am comfortably suing so after a week, I stopped lol. With that being said, I would like to share to you an article I have found online about the secret of youth at the Solstice Medicine blog.
Reading this website somehow brings me back memories when I was still in my country using some products that are similar to what they have in their site. Based from what I read, Chinese believe that the secret of youth is in the oriental ginseng plant. The root of the ginseng plant is highly prized in the Chinese medicine which led me to believe that it's really a good ingredients that produces results. China is the leading producers when it comes to a lot of stuff and medicine is one of the products that they take pride of. Does anyone of you uses herbal medicine in treating some health issues?
