herbal tonics

One definition of a tonic – the criterion used in most ethnic healing systems – is a herb that, with long term use is “building” in some way.

Tonic herbs are a great way to begin with herbal remedies, to try something new and see what it does for you. And they can be taken throughout life. We live in such as toxic and disease-filled world that it cannot hurt to strengthen our “shields.”

By nourishing your tissues and energy the tonics help combat disease, increase immunity and enhance the quality of your life.

Many herbs and natural products are found here in Dominica. One of the reasons why Dominica boasts a remarkable concentration of very old people in good health and they’ve begun to arouse the interest of medical science.

Bwa Bande is a popular tonic, which is said to restore male virility naturally. It is found in a tea form in many of the local shop around Dominica. Cimenkontwa is another herbal tonic that allegedly rids the body of parasites, and Citronella is good for the common cold.

Just ask any Dominican for their favorite “bush” remedy…they’re always willing to share their secret remedies.

Many dominicans say that they don’t have time to relax. I once read somewhere that death is the ultimate relaxation and is nature’s way of telling us to slow down!

Obviously we need to to relax before that limited is reached!

Time for most people is not the real problem, but the issue is how to relax. Our heart has to rest between beats and with the right sort of relaxation could have a number of its other work-load pressures reduced.

Our daily activities is important to out well-being as is also our regular sleep at night. Irregularities in our health habits need to be eliminated and time set in advance for a regular relaxation slot.

As with many other things in life, practice makes perfect. But perfect relaxation is not achieved overnight. In order to survive we have to plan to relax.

I’m curious to know: How do you relax, and whether you plan your relaxation slots ahead of time? Share your relaxation ideas in the comments.
