Mutual Respect Fo M Lady Tara

Poem By ivor or ivor.e hogg

My grandma knew a thing or two
about the herbs that freely grew
From which she brewed her remedies
that served to cure a cough or wheeze.
She always said for each disease.
There was herb which would bring ease.
The local village doctor knew
that she knew more than he claimed to
. Before the N.H.S. became
the major player in the game.
They cured the ills of every man,
the wise old doctor and My Gran
Each held the other in respect
a partnership both could accept.

Great poem of truth here Ivor. I am convinced that we would be better off today if the drug trade had stuck to focussing on natural herbs and botanicals instead of pursuing synthetic chemical based pharmaceuticals. Additionally, medicine is focussed on disease management instead of treating the root cause of disease. The herbalists of today unfortunately get very little respect from today's doctors and pharmacologists in my opinion.
And, I know you know this is the very truth! Herbalists and medical doctors really respected each other back then...that was SO good! I wish the FDA didn't exist...takes them from 3-5 years to 'prove' a drug. So WELL done, Ivor...aye, the poem and its truth should grab a 10 from everyone who reads this! xxxElysabeth
