The Herb Body Map

When I was asked, if I would like to feature this infographic on the blog, I just had to say yes. I am obsessed with natural remedies and you will never see me taking  over-the-counter medicines or going to the doctor for other medication. I don't want to put unnecessary chemicals  into my body. I very rarely get ill and when I do catch something, I use 100% natural remedies to cure everything and my symptoms are very mild and easy to treat. The key to stay healthy and have a strong immune system is in healthy eating and it is one of the reasons why I eat clean! I make sure to pack my menu with vitamin C rich foods, fatty fish, nuts, seeds, garlic, onions, apples, superfoods and powerful herbs and they work wonders! I might even prepare a little guide about dealing with winter colds the natural way. Let me know, if you would like to read it :)

The infographic is brought to you in collaboration with and I really hope you find it interesting.

  1. This is so interesting! I love how natural things can help with our bodily functions. It makes you wonder why chemicals were ever really developed when you can do so much with natural remedies!

  2. I always take natural remedies when I'm ill, I hate putting chemicals into my body because mist if the time they make me worse! This was really interesting to read :)

  3. If you know a cure or something that really helps sinusitis then I would LOVE to read it! Just had a terrible ear infection and sinusitis and I have to say not much helped me and like you, I'm into natural remedies and 'superfoods' etc. x


    1. I used to get really bad sinusitis quite often as a teenager and my doctor always recommended putting hot compresses around my nose, cheeks and eyes and it really helped. I noticed that NHS doesn't recommend steam inhalations, but I swear by them. I fill a big bowl with hot water, add a couple of drops of essential peppermint oil, or a peppermint tea bag (chamomile is also great), put a towel over my head and inhale the steam through my nose slowly. It work wonders and helps to clean your sinuses. Diet wise, if you are already infected - avoid mucus forming foods - anything that contains a lot of flour, dairy, eggs and bad sugars will make it worse. Apparently, dairy is linked to chronic sinus infections!
      If you like garlic and onion - they are your best friend and should help to get rid of all the mucus. Horseradish is great too.

    2. Thank you sooooo much for your reply! I probably haven't helped it because I've just had a dental brace fitted and my diet has basically been eggs, pasta and lots of milk because I was struggling to chew whoops but on the plus side of things I do love onions and garlic and I will def try the inhalation with essential oils. It's nice to talk to someone who can relate to it too, thank you again for your reply :-) xxx

  4. This is so interesting, so many herbs I've never even heard of!
