For many of us, when we get sick, we take antibiotics in order to combat the effects of the illness that we have. Over time, these get accumulated within the body, and soon, you have to either take stronger medication in order to beat this, or the illness will get worse. You can also have resistance to certain drugs that compounds over time until you’re not able to take anything anymore but the strongest drugs that won’t really help the body. This soon becomes a problem for just about everyone because of the fact that they can’t take simple drugs in order to beat off the illness or infection caused by bacteria.

How to Grow and Harvest a Medicinal Garden for Healing, Curing, Beauty, and Glowing Radiant Skin
There are two main classes of medicinal preparations - herbal and pharmaceutical. Pharmaceutical drugs are either synthesized or refined substances.
On the other hand, herbal medicine is defined by the World Health Organization (WHO) as labelled and final medicinal products containing parts of plants (underground or aerial), plant materials, or combinations of both, as their main active ingredient. Plant materials may come in the form of gums, juices, essential oils, fatty oils and other similar substances. Herbal drugs may also contain starch or other additives to improve the needed adhesive quality for preparing tablets or pills.
However, medicines that have plant material mixed with chemically-active substances are not considered herbal. These include drugs that contain small amounts of isolated plant constituents.
Advantages of Medicinal Plants and Herbs
In the past few decades alone, a significant resurrection in the interest revolving medicinal plants has been noticed in the field of western medicine itself. There have been various ways where modern medicine has integrated medicinal plants into the health care system. This is not surprising at all.
Given those perks, it’s clear why many have decided to start their own medicinal gardens. To be among them (and thus reap the same benefits they do), you simply have to continue reading.

Chapter 1: What You Need to Know and Do before Planting and Harvesting Medicinal Herbs
Even though medicinal plants are natural , this does not imply that it is safe to use them without looking at the possible hazards. In fact, a number of the most potent plants, while being very effective and powerful, can pose some danger if not used properly. Another rookie mistake is mistaking one plant for a similar one, which can be dangerous. To keep on the safe side, here are some essential guidelines to live by when thinking about adopting a medicinal plant lifestyle:
Chapter 2: Preparing, Growing, Maintaining, and Harvesting Medicinal Plants
Medicinal plants have a lot of benefits, but they don’t just spring out of nowhere. These require a lot of work, dedication and love. To ensure that you’ll end up having healthy plants in your garden, there are some factors to keep in mind.
Preparing the Location
Not just any area of dirt or soil will do. You need to find the ideal space for the garden. Like most plants, these have unique needs - lighting, moisture, and adequate fertilizer. By giving the plants the right environment, taking care of them becomes a lot easier.
Maintaining and Protecting the Garden
After planting the seedlings, the work isn’t over yet - there are so many elements that can affect the health of the plants. The good news is that there are a lot of things that you can do to shield them from harm.
To protect the plants from the elements, here are some guidelines:
Water often, especially during droughts. Keep the soil moist to keep the plants happy. During days where there is unusually dry and hot weather, water the plants when it is cool. This way, the plants can absorb the water easier. Think: early morning before the sun has begun to heat up the soil.
Harvesting the Plants
Harvesting medicinal plants is a lot more specific than harvesting fruits and vegetables. Herbs like these often use the whole plant, which means there is little that goes to waste. However, each part of the plant requires a unique harvesting method.
Leaves: Pick these at any time. They are versatile because they can be used right as they are harvested, such as for making tea or cooking a dish. It is good to harvest often, and when the leaves are still young. For evergreen herbs like thyme and rosemary, leaves can be harvested just before the herb starts flowering.
Chapter 3: Common Mistakes to Avoid When Growing Medicinal Plants
There are a lot of things that can go wrong when trying to grow your own medicinal garden, so we’re here to give you a heads up on what not to do:
Don’t: Plant in the Wrong Area
In Chapter 2, we talked about the importance of preparing the location before planting, but did you know that it is also important to consider the type of environment? Different plants have different requirements. For instance, plants like the rosemary that prefer dry soil will die sooner than later if you place them in humid and moist environments. If you have a garden that is properly shaded, then go for herbs that grow well under less sun. Otherwise, plants that love sunlight will just get weak and pale. If your garden is neither shady nor sunny, then try using pots instead. These can be moved and relocated whenever your needs for lighting change. Sometimes, it isn’t so much about having enough shade or sunlight, but simply about being creative with your current resources.
Now that you’ve learned what and what not to do when planting and taking care of your herbs, head on to the next chapter to learn what these medicinal plants can do for you and your health.
Chapter 4: Medicinal Herbs for Healing and Curing
Here are some of the most common but most effective medicinal plants that beginner gardeners should consider starting with:
Ginseng is one of the most common medicinal plants. Many commercial and pharmaceutical products incorporate components of the plant for a variety of reasons. The herb is great for naturally prolonging life by promoting good health. More specifically, its roots are used for treating nervous system disorders, improving blood pressure levels and metabolic rates, as well as boosting immunity and hormone secretion.
Aside from being a staple herb in the kitchen, thyme is also known for its antiseptic properties, which come in handy when treating coughs, congestion and even a gassy stomach.
Like thyme, basil is a favorite herb when creating savory and flavorful meals. But it also has great benefits for the body. For one, it is great for treating appetite loss and flatulence. It is effective in treating scrapes and cuts as well.
