Trophorestorative Herbs


A Trophorestorative herb is a herb that is a nutritive restorative. It is normally associated with an affinity for an organ, or an organ system. It rectifies the deficiency and or weakness pertaining to that organ. The effect is not necessarily temporary. The nourishment it provides results in a permanent restoration.
It is a tonic, period. It rebuilds and strengthens. A true trophorestorative cannot harm or produce side effects. You should be able to consume it for long periods, safely.
Many herbs are Nutritive, only some herbs are Trophorestoratives. They are unique. They can actually restore a physical function of a debilitated organ or tissue.

Differential Treatment :
Trophorestorative herbs help in nourishment and restoration of Organs. Various herbs are used for treating malfunctioning of an Organ.
But the use of herbs depends on the indication shown by them i.e you first have to judge the problem and give herb accordingly.
For example, you have many herbs to treat the Mucous Membrane Disorder. But it does not mean that you consume any of them.
First you will see the problem in Mucous membrane. If the mucous is in excess and you feel like cold then you should use Yerba Mansa. But if you feel dryness, itching and irritation in the Sinuses, then you should use Spanish Needle.

Trophorestorative Herb Affinities

It has been alleged that some organs once damaged or rendered dysfunctional, cannot be restored to normalcy. Pancreas and the Kidneys are cited as examples. However, some herbs do have a special affinity for certain organs and can revive a damaged organ and or restore the functions of an organ system which is malfunctioning. Irrespective of the type of disorder, these herbs will do good.
However, there is a word of caution. In the generally accepted system of medicine ( Called Allopathy, wherein the symptoms are dealt with drugs and chemicals having opposite actions to those of the symptoms ) no cognizance is taken of the modality of the symptoms. Nor is it necessary to cater for the time at which they occur. No allowance is made for concomitants while selecting a drug. A headache is a headache, period. In homeopathy it is exactly the opposite. Every nuance is catered for while selecting a remedy. It does matter whether the headache occurs in the morning or evening. Having identified the organ, the doctor can exercise a choice. He can chose from a list of Trophorestoratives affecting that organ. The choice will then be determined on the basis of the modality.
