Spearmint Mentha spicata
Spearmint (Mentha spicata)
First, I want to point out that there is an academic field called phytochemistry that studies the pharmacological chemicals made by plants. Natural remedies are not bogus placebos. Although the FDA has not spent the time, money, nor effort to evaluate or approved alternative healing tools, Phytochemist and other brilliant researchers around the world have being thoroughly interested for quite some time.
If it were not for the Mint species, there would be no cough drops, or any other natural decongestants. This is because Menthol is the active ingredient in many of these over the counter products. Menthol is not made by human beings. It's an organic compound that the Mint family produces by using the suns energy, and the biospheres water and air. Name one human chemist that can do this.
Spearmint is typically used in any infusion which is thought to enhance the immune system, and fight off colds, and other flu like symptoms. It eases stomach aches, reduces nausea, and helps open nasal pathways, as well as soothes a sore throat. Spearmint is also delicious when mixed with chocolate and even candy. The pain relieving qualities of the menthol in the plant are caused by its effects on k-opioid receptors. It tells the brain that the area effected is ice cold.
Receptors are in our bodies, and minds. They are a naturally evolved, internal tools, designed for picking up on chemicals spread around throughout nature. We are literally designed to consume nature. Our bodies are well aware of these chemicals, even if our society fails to see this or embrace their healing touch.
