An article from Melanie Waxman’s website:
‘According to research we have been using herbs in medicine and to improve the flavor of the foods for thousands of years. Scientists are now discovering that the early doctors and herbalists knew a lot more than they were given credit for. Many historians believe that herbs were used for medicine and healing because they either resembled a part of the body or from simple observation that the person improved after taking the herb.
Today herbs are often only used as garnishes to add a colorful aspect to our meals. However, they do so much more than make a plate or soup look pretty. Herbs are packed with nutrition and by enjoying them on a daily basis, provide that extra burst of energy to keep us feeling and looking great.’
