Blacks and Health: A Natural Way to Heal Part 3

Therapist: What brings you here today, Truthbetold?

Me: Something is happening to me. Being around white people…their energy makes me sick…depressed. I can’t get out of bed. I’m nauseous. Dizzy. I’m sinking into myself and can’t shake it off.

Therapist: (silence)

As I uttered those words to my white, female therapist, I thought if only for a moment that perhaps I should bite my tongue.

St. John’s wort is an herb that can be grown in the summer and winter. As old as ancient times, this flowering herb was used for tea to treat:
Depression
Anxiety
Insomnia
Headaches
Wound healing (when made into an ointment)
Today, Australia produces 20 percent of the world’s supply. St. John’s wort was given its name because it blooms about June 24th, the birthday of John the Baptist. “Wort” is an old English word for plant. Several countries, including Japan, the United Kingdom and Canada, are in the process of including drug-herb interaction warnings on St. John’s wort products due to the active ingredients hyperforin and hypericin. As with any plant/root/herb interactions, care should be used if you take other drugs for pain, depression and are pregnant. It is wise to do research on plants and side-effects before you take any natural medicines.
I’ve used this fantastic plant on and off for years and for me, with the combination of sunlight and The Most High, I’ve felt better than I’ve ever felt in years.

  2. good thoughts, plan on looking into the best program for me of juice and raw foods along with some serious me time pampering. feel like dried up scare crow after this farm season lol … it’s almost over

  3. My crops weren’t the best this year either. I’m writing a post about us farmers and the Obama Administration that I think you’ll love (or hate) but it affects us all.

    After you made that statement I wonder what was going on in your therapist’s mind. We can only imagine……

  5. Negress,

    I also found the tincture/extract very helpful in relieving rheumatic and arthritic pains. The oil is also very good for healing sunburns.
