This is an introductory article for someone less familiar with the topic of phytochemistry and plant based medicines. If you browse around and read a lot of my work then you should already be familiar with it. I intend to make it well known to the main stream that herbal medicine is based on science, and prior to our scientific understanding of it, human beings still knew for thousands of years that it works. Please enjoy, comment, and share on your social media networks. Thanks!

What is phytochemistry, and phytochemicals? Why are they both important? Phytochemistry is the study of pharmacological alkaloids that plants create. It's nothing new and big pharmaceutical companies use this knowledge for their own selfish gain. Phytochemicals are made by the plants which utilize their organic environmental resources to construct them ever so precisely.

This innate ability to convert organic resources into pharmacologically active constituents is programmed into the plants DNA. A lot of pharmaceuticals are nothing more than chemicals taken from plants, or chemicals slightly altered from the original form from plants. A few quick examples are: Opiates - ( codeine, morphine, heroin ) - from the opium poppy, Aspirin - derived from the White Willow tree, Cocaine - from the leaves of the coca plant, Menthol - from Mint leaves

It seems to me the problem here is not the inadequacy of natures ability to produce effective medicine. The problem seems to be the lack of a hierarchical excitement about these phytochemical treasures and the amount of disinformation that public has been mislead by. If the entire world knew that thousands of medicinally active naturally occurring chemicals surrounded them and out-number their entire population as a living species, then who would ever buy into the notion that altered and diluted synthetic drugs are the only intelligent option?

I believe this lack of understanding and excitement towards plant based remedies stems from the fact that human beings are arrogant enough to believe we are more intelligent than the source of our arising. It's because drug companies know nature is a pharmacy, and they don't like it. Why run the world into the ground for your own selfish desires of wealth and fame? There are plenty of righteous ways to make money. If you have to put the entire earths population at risk just to sell your medicine then how can you even call it medicine. The drug commercials will straight up tell you the horrible side effects which are worse than the condition being "treated".

The fascism doesn't stop there. There are a wide number of psychedelic compounds produced by certain plants which show promise in the treatment of addiction, as a psycho-therapeutical medicine, and more. Such substances as LSD, Psilocybin, and MDMA are all plant based alkaloids. LSD is a slightly altered and synthetic version of naturally occurring plant phytochemicals. Psilocybin is completely natural and exist in psilocybin mushrooms. MDMA is also a slightly altered synthetic version of naturally occurring chemicals as well. A group of educated professionals are conducting research and working towards legal access of these substances for therapeutic purposes. They are called (Multidisciplinary association for psychedelic studies), check them out.

Ibogaine for example, is a plant based drug ( a chemical ) found in the root bark of the Iboga tree. It has gained a world wide reputation as being a safe, and effective treatment for drug addiction. At the same time, it is considered a schedule 1 controlled substance in the United States. Most people have never heard of Iboga though, so how could it be banned? Have you ever turned on the news and heard of an Iboga overdose? No, and that's the point. Question what is happening in the world because it's not necessarily correct just because it was initiated from a authoritative source.

One of the most famous plant based psychedelic drugs is called DMT. It's a controlled substance but not only does it exist all over the place in nature, but it's also in your brain! It's very similar to psilocybin and psilocin, being that they are both actually forms of the substance ( 5-ho-dmt ) & ) ( 5-po-dmt ). Some studies were conducted as seen in the documentary hosted by Joe Rogan called "DMT: The Spirit Molecule". It shows great promise in helping us to understand consciousness in general. This "spirit molecule" is historically tied to out of body and near death experiences, and induces a sincere change in the user for life.
