Several websites have shared the news about an incredible map known as Herbal Cures Map that is more than 80 years old This map describes the popular medicinal herbs and plants used in 1932 and how they were used.
According to the text found on the map, it is crucial for the general public not to forget that pharmacy, dentistry and medicine are professions that provide important services and that these professions should not be affected by commercial changes and trends. Both the people who work in these fields and the public will feel equal negative consequences in case the services lose their basic purpose.
It turns out that only a small number of people understand the importance of herbs, plants and minerals in the field of pharmacy and how important these items are when it comes to public health. 7 out 10 medicines are based on plants. Of course, these numbers were relevant in 1932.
If we take a close look at the situation today we will notice that the modern medical system mostly depends on protected chemical solutions and biological compounds that have almost nothing in common with the pharmacy based on plants practiced more than 80 years ago. According to many experts, the FDA itself doesn’t support the use of substances and compounds that come from nature and pharmaceutical drugs have become a standard.
That’s why we should share this incredible map and increase the awareness of popular herbal medicines used in the past that didn’t come with any side effects and were almost equally efficient as today’s chemical drugs.
What is even more interesting is the presence of Cannabis Sativa on the map. Sadly, this plant is illegal in many states today which is another proof how Big Pharma affects our lives.
