Herbs At A Glance
Got no time. Just B eat it.

Most of us are living life in a trance.  We are worried about our health, but have no time to do anything.

Add to this, the changed eating habits, the degraded environment, the scourge of inherited miasma, the compromised immunity and the bane of modern medicine and you have a perfect soil that nurtures disease.  The inherent human immunity is no longer adequate to combat all these enemies of our vigor.  We need additional help.  This help is best provided by herbs.

Unfortunately, the path to the exact knowledge is hazy.  We need the collective wisdom of our forefathers to correct the situation.  Accordingly, Herbpathy   has undertaken the arduous task of compiling the knowledge from all the ancient cultures of the world and present it to you in a cut and dried form which has been tried and tested by generations.

Rasayanas / Adaptogens / Super tonic Herbs have definite affinity for different parts of our body and different purposes.  The tables below provide the co-relation between the body part and the herbs. The formats are as follows :
Table 1.     Function/ Body Part related to herbs.

I want to thank Doctor O.WATER for the Herbal medicine he gave to me and my daughter, i was suffering from HIV and Herpes simplex outbreaks all over my genital, when i gave birth to my daughter and that was how my daughter got the sickness indirectly from me, but to God be the glory that i am healed with the herbal medicine that Doctor O.WATER gave to me. I want to use this medium to tell everyone that the solution to our sickness has come, so i will like you to contact this great healer on his email address: DRWATERHIVCURECENTRE@GMAIL.COM and Whatsapp +2349050205019. I am really happy today that i and my daughter are cured of HIV and herpes, we are now negative after the use of his herbal medicine, my specialist doctor confirm it. once more i say a big thank to you Doctor O.WATER for your healing hands upon my life and my daughter.

Do you believe that Herpes has a permanent cure? My name is Antonio Jefferson Cole, I'm in Salt Lake City, Utah. I have been spending lots of money weekly on buying the popular Valtrex and sometimes Acyclovir, to suppress my Herpes outbreaks as prescribed to me in the hospital. Anyone who has herpes can attest this, with all the pains and embarrassing symptoms. Unfortunately, I have found out that those hospital recommended products are frequently not effective at taking care of the problem but rather make you spend all your money. DR.WATER herbal remedy will get to the root of the cause and cure you completely rather than suppress outbreaks with medication. And you will be happier, healthier, and outbreak free. He also has herbal remedies that can cure HIV, HPV, hepatitis and so on. He is the greatest of all herbal healers. His email is DRWATERHIVCURECENTRE@GMAIL.COM and his Whatsapp number: +2349050205019.

Mubarak.
Thank you for your words of appreciation. Cordyceps, Indian Gooseberry, Punarnava, Korean Ginseng are the best Adaptogens or Rasayanic Herbs for Pancreas. You may take each herb for one month every year. And our team is working on providing the provision of images of the herbs. We will upload the images shortly.
