Hoodia Gordonii


                     Hoodia Gordonii is a type of Cactus that has both ornamnetal and medicinal value. In South Africa, it's most commonly used for treating indigestion and small infections. In the Kalahari Desert, it's used to suppress appetite ( weight loss ). It's used for the same thing by modern herbalists around the globe. The active alkaloid is believed to be P57 ( a oxypregnane steroidal glycoside).


Scientific Studies

You'll hear certain people say all the time things like, "There's no scientific studies to back that up". Most of the time, what this actually means is, "I am unfamiliar with the scientific studies that back this up." We do know that plants create pharmacological chemicals. The worlds most effective pain medicine is not made by man, rather extracted from the Opium Poppy. This is one example of many.


Cacti and other plants are the most advanced chemist on the planet. They have learned to use the suns energy, and the biospheres water and air, to create mind-bogglingly complex organic compounds. The big pharmaceutical companies have been aware of this sense their existence, and have exploited this fact. So if you think that there is no pharmacological value to naturally occuring medicinal herbs, think again.


Alternatively, Cacti have always been a symbol for protection. Their spikes which have evolved to defend against predators indicate this, as well as their ability to survive without water for long periods of time. They are tough, courageous and adaptive to their surroundings. The San Pedro specifically, is a powerful Talisman for various cultures around the world. That is, it's believed to hold innate properties of healing, transformation, and protection.


What I Think About Strictly Ornamental Plants

I never understood why people spend thousands of dollars on landscaping to have plants of no useful value put on their property. Why not spend thousands on a survival garden? Is it worth that much money to look at a palm tree? Really? There are plenty of useful plants that can be grown on your land. These useful plants hold the intention of giving back to our beloved eco-system and human kind.
