Ancient Egyptian Scrolls Document Natural Herbs

Herbs played a huge role in Egyptian medicine. Proof comes from burial sites, tombs and underground temples where archeologists have found extensive sets of medical documents and scrolls, including the Ebers Papyrus, the Edwin Smith Papyrus, the Hearst Papyrus, and the London Medical Papyrus, which contained the earliest documented awareness of tumors. Egyptians knew about the healing powers of honey. In fact, the first official recognition of the importance of honey dates back to the first Egyptian Dynasty and the “Sealer of the Honey.” Iegyptn Niuserre’s Sun temple, bee-keepers are shown in hieroglyphics blowing smoke into hives as they are removing honey-combs. The honey was immediately jarred and sealed and could therefore be kept for years, and it was used for the production of medicines and ointments. They even used it as a natural antibiotic.

Remedies from the ancient Ebers Papyrus scrolls:

• Aloe vera was used to alleviate burns, ulcers, skin diseases and allergies

• Basil was written up as heart medicine

• Balsam Apple (Apple of Jerusalem) was used as a laxative and as a liver stimulant

Moringa Oleifera Tree

I eat 1 – 3 moringa seeds everyday.

Moringa seeds contain a good amount of vitamin A, vitamin B, vitamin C, vitamin D, vitamin E, as well as iron. Actually moringa seeds has more amount of vitamin compared with various food that is claimed a prime source of them such as oranges, carrots, and milk. These vitamins provide a great benefits for us. It is able to be eaten as supplement substitute, as it is really full of nutrient and completely natural. It is also able to make your minor injuries like bruises, cut, or even burns heal faster because of the nutrients it has.

A seed extract from the Moringa Oleifera tree could provide a natural and inexpensive solution for water purification. Through a collaborative research project between Uppsala University, Institut Laue-Langevin in France and the NIST Center for Neutron Research in the USA has optimized the process to make the seed extract even better at removing particulates from water. The new research gives improved insight and could now be advanced for use in larger-scale water treatment plants.
