When life calls you to “stay at home” find your green thumb, plant more gardens, create Cottage business build crafts money making hobbies. When I am not in nature I fill my greenhouse bins with fall spinach, red Cale, broccoli and Brussels.  We built a rental base project, and more gardens. One caveat for fall planting in cold climates do it early. We are at sea level in Champlain Islands so we have longer growing season,, we need a lot of veggies that’s how e eat.

Plant at least 6 weeks before frost time when the ground will freeze. The biggest draw back is for your plants not having enough time to produce some sweet crops. When planting your mums for them to come back in spring, plan proper depth means  dig deeper holes and mulch a whole lot.

Hemp in the Body 

About 20 years ago, researchers discovered that cells through-out the body contained receptors for endocannabinoids. ​These substances help control all physiological functions, including how the brain responds to stress. Researchers also learned that stress itself can,turn ,upset endocannabinoid levels within the brain,causing a downward spiral in which the body's ability to employ these substances properly  becomes more and more impaired.​ Scientista found in addition the hemp contains phytocannabinoids, which interact with the same cell receptors. As a result hemp acts within the body in a similar fashion to endocannabinoids, helping to maintain a healthy state of balance, being.

     Hemp's pytocannabinoids are particularly useful when factors such as stress and poor diet cause a state of endocannabinoid deficiency.

The Medicinal benefits of Herbs have been known for centuries. Records of Native Americans, Romans, Egyptians, Persian and Hebrew medical practices show that herbs were used extensively to treat practically every known illness.

Many herbs contain powerful ingredients that, if used correctly can help to heal the body. The pharmiceutical industry was originally based upon the ability to isolate these  ingredients and make them available in apuer form. Herbalists, however, contend that nature  provides other ingredients in the same herbs to balance the more powerful ingredients. 

These other components, though they may be less potent, may help to act as a buffers,  synergists,or counter balances working in harmony with the more powerful ingredients. Therefore, when you use herbsin their complete form, your body's healing process utilizes a balance of ingredients provided by nature.

In these United States, Herbal remedies were used widely until early 1900's, when what  was to become the modern pharmaceutical

began isolating individual active componentsand producing drugs based on them....

American medicine became almost exclusivelycommitted to a nedical system some practitioners call allopathy.,​whichseeks to treat illness by producing a condition in the body that does not allow the disease to thrive or  live. Over the years, n=most Americans have become conditioned to rely on synthetic, commercial drugs for relief.

Today however, Scientists' have taken a second look at herbal remedies. Particularly the last twenty years. Today's renewed interest in herbs reflects increasing concerns about the side effects of powerful​ synthetic drugs, as well as the desire of many people to take charge of their own health, rather than merely submitting themselvesto a sometimes-impersonal health care system. We are also rediscovering the healthful benefits of tasty herbs for cooking aromatic herbs for enhancing and helping to balance mental, spiritual , and physical health.

Nature's Pharmacy

Nature's pharmacy is an abundant one. Many herbs are rich in compounds that have beneficial effect on certain tissues and organs, and , therefore, can be used as medicines to treat, cure, or prevent disease. Herbal remedies can helpnourich your immune system, stimulate the regeneration of cells, damaged live tissue, build the strength of the adrenal glands, counter the adverse effects of chemotherapy,balance the endocrine system,stimulate milk productiona, improve night vision, among other things.

Basically, Medicinal Herbs fall into two categories ​tonic and stimulating.

Tonics help cellsm tissues, and organs to maintain tone, balance, throughout the body. some tonics activate and invigorate bodily processes or parts. Other tonics supply important nutrientstha cells, tissues and organs need to function properly. Tonics ordinarily are taken regularly for three to nine months at a time to gently strengthen and imporve overall health.

Stimulating herbs have much stronger actions and are used t treat particular ailments. theshould be taken in smaller doses than tonic herbs, and for shorter perieds of time. To be continued....

The  Healing Power of Herbs

Ancient cultures had no idea why herbs worked-they simply knew that certain plants produced certain desired results. Only in the last hundred years or so have chemists and pharmicists been isolating and purifying the beneficial compounds in plants to produce reliable pharmaceutical drugs. About 25 percent of the prescription medicines sold today are ( or originally were) derived from plants. For example:

, Morphine and codeine come from the opium poppy.

, Aspirin originated from willow bark.

, Digitalis, a heart muscle strengthener, is derived from the   

   foxglove plant.
