Weeds – To Pull or Propagate, That is the Question
Posted on Sep 29, 2016 by Jenna Crookshanks
Weeds, the perpetual invaders of our well-manicured lawns and a nuisance we can’t seem to get rid of. Or are they? Perhaps Ralph Waldo Emerson was right, “What is a weed? A plant whose virtues have never been discovered.”
Weeds, as well as herbs and whole food supplements, can be beneficial to maintaining a healthy system; detoxification, immune boosting and anti-oxidants are just some of the properties that can be found among this group of plants. Essentially, one can look at a weed and think of it as a natural medicine found in small doses. For example, let’s take a closer look at that yellow “weed” more commonly known to most of us as the dandelion.
Dandelions have several health benefits for various issues that can be disruptive to a healthy way of life. Since dandelions are rich in calcium, they can aid in bone strengthening and protection against age related damage to our skeletal system. As a natural diuretic they promote kidney and urinary tract health by eliminating toxic substances. Furthermore, dandelions stimulate the liver to foster digestive health by maintaining the flow of bile. The dandelion has a host of other virtues that NutritionWorks would love to help you discover!
So the next time you go to pluck one of those little patches of yellow before calling the lawn care company, just remember you might be getting rid of some the most beneficial healing properties available for your body. Instead, give NutritionWorks a call and let us teach you about the homeopathic properties and proper use of these supplements, along with whole food supplements, so that you can build and maintain a healthy body for the long run!
