In reply to: balance posted by txilar on July 17, 2002 at 16:01:11:Only really bit of weirdness is when the line of Folk Cure and Herbal
Remedy get crossed because in modern vernacular they are almost the
same thing, along with New Age Medicine and Herbal Remedy or Folk
Remedy and Herbalism...... It's difficult to draw the line except to
say MythMagic and Herbalism which puts the emphasis on 'not medicine
in any way shape or form but voodoo and a bit of mud' and 'an actual
science dealing with the chemical properties of herbs'....
Also, just a wild thought for you with migranes that may or may not
help.... acupressure.... not puncture, pressure. There's a pressure
point between then thumb and forefinger that if rubbed with decent
amount of pressure it can relieve some severe headaches induced by
sinus pressure and some migranes (I say some because it depends on
the person and their nervous system and just how sensative they
are... For me it works fantastically, for my husband it just annoys)
Hugs Lelia, Know exactly what you mean. My great grandmother was a
native american herbalist, rather well known for her ability with
plants and animals by those in her community (she lived among whites)
they were always calling her when they couldn't get their doctor.
Unfortunately none of her children showed an intrest in the craft so
I'm having to relearn everything that should have been passed down.
I take it way too personally when anyone disses native remedies and
get incredibly defensive.
