Naturally, when we look at the words “drug” and “herb”, we think of them as being related. Each consists of four letters. However, the resemblance ends there.
A herb is an organic substance of vegetable origin. It has life and it supplies nourishment for the building up and strengthening of the body. It also eliminates poisons from the human system. A herb is a food, which, if eaten correctly, eradicates and prevents many ailments. A herb belongs to the vegetation element, can be grown in many different localities and it has no bad effects.
A drug is usually of mineral origin and is an inorganic substance. Sometimes, however, a drug is derived from vegetables or herbs, but only through a chemical process. It has no life and has a deadening or killing effect. A drug is frequently a poison which at times is used to destroy other poisons. Therefore, the after effects are often harmful.
Articles written by chemists or pharmacists frequently appear in the newspapers ridiculing the Transylvanian as being superstitious, in believing that herbs has great medicinal value.
Extracts of various Transylvanian herbal remedies have been subject to chemical processes in order to precipitate their elements. However, many kinds of herbs and roots showed nothing in the test; consequently, the chemists could not determine their uses.
For example a chemist was never able to discover the elements in none of the 11 species of slow-growing perennial plants, which are wonderful remedy in building up the air circulation in the body.
Perennials grow and bloom over the spring and summer, die back every autumn and winter, and then return in the spring from their root-stock. For the past fifty centuries, the Transylvanian have used them to strengthen the air circulation and have combined them with other herbal remedies to improve the blood circulation.
