Best Herbal Medicines To Treat Various Illnesses (From a Real Herbalist)

Somthing that’s supremely annoying to me is when websites like Healthline get ranked in Google for herbalism/alternative medicine topics and Healthline just suggests some generic remedy that isn’t all that effective anyway (“use ACV! use Honey! use Baking Soda!”) (Worse yet is when it’s some fake blog set up to generate advertising revenue giving out BS health information…)

With AI now junking up search engines (and due to the COVID era) it seems that Google is becoming more stringent about health subjects ranking in Google.

… Even though I’ve caught universities and so-called scholarly sources using AI to generate content. I actually saw one that was promoting “home remedies” for schizoaffective disorder. (???)

I’m all about the herbal remedies but as someone with education in both the psych field and herbal medicine, I can say that I don’t believe home remedies are really effective for schizoaffective disorder.

(Although there has been research that found correlation between schizophrenia and Omega 3’s. Like many other conditions, there MAY be a nutritional deficiency responsible for some “psychotic” disorders. Although I highly doubt this is what said website was referring to.)

BUT I DIGRESS, it’s really frustrating to see a so-called reputable website recommend such bad natural remedies when so much better ones would work. No wonder people think herbal remedies don’t work!

So I decided to put together a comprehensive list of herbal remedies that I’ve actually used and proved remarkably effective OR remedies herbal teachers with way more experience than me have used successfully to treat conditions OR is so effective that research even found it effective.

This is just a list I’m going to update regularly since I am working on compiling my own materia medica.
