What are Herbs ?

Herbs are plants and roots also known as foods that keep our bodies strong and healthy because of their dense nutritional values. Nutrition means there are vitamins, minerals, antioxidants. fatty acids and other important nutrients in the foods and herbs so that the process of healing and healthy cell replication can take place once they are consumed. The herbal products used in the Donna Roth Paw Paw cancer program are all Nature’s Sunshine products which have been meticulously tested in a laboratory by scientists who use state-of –the –art quality control technology to ensure all products are even beyond pharmaceutical grade. All Nature’s Sunshine products are approved for the purpose of sales both by the FDA in US and by Health Canada .
Each herb had a nutritional analysis such as :
Carrots – high in Vit A and Beta Carotene
Parsley -= Calcium, Magnesium, Niacin, Phosphorus, Potassium. Vit A, C, K
Siberian Ginseng found in Chinese Mineral Chi Tonic –Magnesium, Niacin, Phosphorus, Zinc
Super Omega 3 – high in Omega 3 – 380 mg of EPA and 190 mg of DHA
Just as all berries, blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, contain high amounts of antioxidants to ensure that the bad free radicals from all toxins do not steal oxygen from our cells so do the 50 different acetogenins found In Paw Paw ensure that cancer cells do not get the sugars they are looking for . Now I know that everyone is comfortable with carrots or parsley or ginseng or fish oil in a capsule. Well just apply this same comfort to Paw Paw. It’s just that you are very familiar with Parsley but Paw Paw is more of a stranger to you. And consequently you tend to apply fears to it such as that there are contraindications which term ,I feel , only belongs to the medical community and that it is not scientifically documented ( it has 20 years of research behind it by Dr. Mclaughlin) and that herbs are dangerous and you know that because the doctor said so( only drugs are dangerous ). There is so much confusion . Who do you believe- the doctor or some lowly herbalist ? The answer to this question is simple. Which one is the master of healing any injury – a drug containing toxins and harmful side effects or herbs loaded with nutrition ? Of course it’s nutrition that contains the power of repairing an injury. This statement remains as true today as it did in the day when herbs were first created for the use of man for food and for healing.
