10 Potent Plants That Kill Pain Fast

We all hate to go to the doctor, and even more to take the prescribed medicines. Nature is so smart, it put the medicine inside our food, so it remains to us to start understanding how to use this wonderful gift. Most of the times, nature provides us plants with such a strong healing power that is hard to believe, but all you have to do is to look in your garden, terrace or in your kitchen. It is very fashionable to use plants that are extravagant or exotic in the hope that they have an incredible power. But our gaze should stop near, around us because nature is the supreme provider for everything we need. It is said that we need only six doctors; sunshine, water, rest, air, exercise and diet. Who wants more?

Today we are going to talk about food that kills pain fast and you will be surprised to discover that these plants are actually at your fingertips. You’ll learn how to use them to fight aches, sickness and even mood swings.

#1. BASILbasil

A sacred herb used for peace and happiness at home. There are over 60 varieties: sweet basil like genovese or pistou, purple basil like Rubin basil, flavored basil like lime basil or Thai basil. It is used to sharpen the memory, combat colds, flu and the herpes, eliminate infections, remove phlegm from your bronchial tubes, relieve mucus in asthma, has antibacterial properties and it is an anti-stress agent. Tasting like anise, basil is a plant rich in carotenoids, such as beta-carotene, which protects cells from adverse effects of free radicals and prevents the oxidation of cholesterol on blood vessels. Thus, basil reduces the risk of atherosclerosis and heart attack. Because of the magnesium compounds, basil relaxes the muscles and the blood vessel and thus is recommended for maintaining the cardiovascular system healthy, improving blood circulation. Basil is effective for the whole immune system because it destroys bacteria that allows the development of viral infections, colds, flu and herpes.

How to use:

Tea:

  • 10-12 leaves washed and crushed and a teaspoon of ginger rake fry in a skillet over low heat until the leaves soften. Add a cup of water and boil for a few minutes. Add a teaspoon of honey and drink 3 hot teas a day, through rare sips, after the main meals.

How to grow:

Growing Basil is relatively easy as long as the growing environment has suitable light and temperature levels. For optimal growth, basil should receive 6 or more hours of direct sunlight a day. Check your soil for moisture every other day to determine whether or not your basil needs some watering. If your soil is dry, water at the base of the plant until the soil is wet to a depth of about 1½ inches. You can start by planting yourself or buy it.

#2. ROSEMARYrosemary

Rosemary has long been believed to have memory-enhancing properties, it contains diterpene which has neuroprotective properties that may protect against Alzheimer’s disease as well as the normal memory loss that occurs with aging. Remarkably even the smell of rosemary has been found to improve memory. In addition, rosemary boosts concentration. It’s also used for muscular aches, hair growth, poor circulation, digestion, anti-dandruff and scalp nourishment, mood elevator, migraine relief, pain relief, immune booster, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, fresh breath, liver detoxification.

How to use:

Powder:

– The plant will be finely ground. Usually, a teaspoon of powder is taken 4 times a day on the empty stomach. Keep it under the tongue for 10-15 minutes, then swallow with water. The powder should not be stored for more than 7 days as its properties are altered.

How to grow:

Rosemary is easiest to grow from a cut leftover, rather than planting seeds. Visit a community garden and ask for a cutting, or ask a friend for a cutting of their plant. The best time to do this is in late spring, but if you live in a warmer climate, this can be done during early autumn as well. Strip the leaves off one inch from the bottom of the stem. Before planting the rosemary, strip the leaves off of the lower section of the cutting (about an inch from the end of the stem). This part of the plant will go into the soil. Water rosemary infrequently. Rosemary prefers a drier soil, so don’t overdo the watering. It will be happy with the average garden watering. It likes to source most of its water from rain. And don’t worry about fertilizing. This is not a herb that needs it.

#3. SAGEsage

The leaves should be collected shortly before or just at the beginning of flowering. Leaves can then be dried, but not above 95°F. Sage can be taken internally as either an infusion, tincture, or gargle. The leaves of Red Sage are often used to aid inflammation of the mouth, throat, and tonsils as its volatile oils are soothing to the mucous membranes. It can be used internally as a mouth wash to treat gingivitis, inflamed tongue (glossitis), and other mouth inflammations including mouth ulcers. It can also be gargled to treat laryngitis, pharyngitis, and tonsillitis. Furthermore, it reduces sweating when taking internally. Externally it is used to treat wounds. Do not take Sage if you are pregnant or wishing to breastfeed. When taken internally, it can reduce breast milk production and stimulate the muscles of the uterus.

How to use:

Infusion:

– pour a cup of boiling water onto 1-2 teaspoons of leaves and let infuse for 10 minutes. Drink this solution up to three times a day.

How to grow:

A lot of your success in growing sage is because of what you don’t do. Don’t over-water your sage plants. They only need to be watered at all during dry spells. And don’t over-fertilize them. Sage plants don’t really need much fertilizer. Over-fertilizing makes them grow faster but they have a weaker flavor, defeating the purpose of growing it.

How to use:

Infusion:

– put 2 teaspoons of dry and crushed herb in 250 ml boiling water and leave to cover for 10 minutes. Drink one cup a day, divided into 2-3 replicas, for one week.

How to grow:

Thyme can tolerate indirect light, which makes it perfect for the kitchen herb garden. The best results will be found when thyme is planted where it receives six hours of daylight. Once the thyme has been planted, place the container in a southern- or western-facing window if possible. A good mix of sand, potting soil, peat moss and perlite will provide adequate nutrients and drainage.

It is best to start growing your chives from seedlings instead of seeds so that you can enjoy quicker results. When planting your chive seedlings, you want well drained and nutrient-rich soil. Chives will flourish quickly in a full sun spot, but if you only have partial sun they will survive, they just won’t grow as quickly. When planting your chive seedlings, you want them to be 8-10 inches apart so they have room to stretch.

#8. LAVENDERlavender

Lavender not only has a great smell and color, but it also serves numerous medicinal and health purposes. In the composition of the plant, over 40 components have been identified which can not be obtained by synthesis in the laboratory.

How to grow:

If you are growing your lavender in pots, cover two inches of the bottom with Styrofoam peanuts or gravel. This will help make draining easier so the lavender does not become diseased or damaged. Plant one lavender per pot and keep it at the center. Water your lavender only when the soil is dry. As mentioned before, damp soil is very bad for lavender, so you don’t want to over-water it. However, under-watering can cause fungus and disease to grow.

      Well, you know from the internet what it generally looks like; Like Dandelion but bigger. It is a 2 year plant, only springing up tall the 2nd when it really stands out. If they are scarce around you, you need only find one in seed to start yourself off, they produce thousands. Hurry, though, the ones around me are about blown away now. Look in the fields for the tall ones. Good luck with that but there are online places to get the seeds.
