Understanding the Difference Between Herbs and Spices

All herbs and spices, culinary or medicinal are made of natural properties that have compatibility with our bodies. Our bodies do not make everything that we need to sustain life and health, plants process these substances for us and make them more readily accessible to our body than any of the chemicals man-made today.


Medicinal plants include such things as minerals, vitamins, and trace elements, all these materials are necessary for recovery and health. Medicinal herbs also include medicinal substances such as essential oils, bitters, alkaloids, and tannins that have natural affinities for certain organs and systems in our bodies that have therapeutic actions to heal and sustain us.


Herbal remedies, by definition, are any plants that have a therapeutic action, which also includes vegetables and fruits and even some spices. One such example would be celery seeds which have a cleansing action upon the urinary tract system as well as being an aide to arthritis, while the essential oils of the peppermint herb help to relieve the pain of headaches and aids in the digestive process.


Peppermint leaves can also be used as an addition to salads, to flavor water, or make tea, while celery seeds are often used for cooking such food as a roast as well as an addition to salads and many other uses. Cinnamon is more often used as a spice but also has many medicinal properties as well.


From ancient times through the present day we have eaten plants and our bodies have responded through the millennia in a way that can not be matched with any synthetic drug in spite of all the advances of modern medicine.


Spices, like herbs, may be dried from seed, fruit, root, or bark. They are used in nutritionally insignificant quantities for flavor, color, food additives, and even as a preservative. Spices in ancient times as in today are also used in cosmetics and perfume, as well as medicine.


A few examples:


A compress is sometimes made up to help relieve a headache using a combination of herbs


Soak a washcloth in as hot water as you can stand, apply 2 drops of therapeutic essential oil of peppermint and 1 drop of therapeutic essential lavender, place the compress over the forehead, sit back and relax. This has worked well for a sinus-type headache.


To relieve anxiety and stress


Lavender, like many other herbs, has many good properties for relieving stress; try this recipe below.


Lavender tea


1 tsp of fresh lavender flowers (1/2 tsp of dried lavender flowers can be substituted)


1-2 tbsp of fresh mint leaves


1 cup of boiling water


Combine lavender flowers and mint leaves in a teapot, pour boiling water over the herbs and let steep for about 5 minutes. Strain liquid into a teacup and enjoy.




Pepper has been used as a spice since prehistoric times and appears to have originated in India. Black pepper is produced from the unripe drupes of the pepper plant, while white pepper consists of the seed of the pepper plant. Many spices were used not only for seasoning but also for medicine. Black pepper was thought to aid with indigestion, joint pain, and liver problems. Today its use is more common for sore throats and coughs.


Understanding the difference between herbs and spices is just a matter of knowing your botanical plants and their properties. As spices like cinnamon, peppermint, and even celery seeds cross over into culinary and medicinal use, they all are plant-based, but their inherited constituents decide how they best are used and the quantities needed.

Benefits Of Acupuncture Therapy
Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese medical treatment that has been in practice for over 2,000 years. Acupuncture therapy is now used by practitioners in mainstream medicine to complement courses of treatment for patients suffering from more than 40 different medical conditions. There are many benefits of acupuncture enjoyed by patients all over the world. Here, just two of those benefits will be discussed: pain relief and treatment of medical conditions.
Pain Relief
The most widespread use of acupuncture is in the treatment of pain. The World Health Organization and the National Institutes of Health in the U.S. list acupuncture as an effective treatment for chronic pain associated with a variety of different injuries and medical disorders, including:
Dental Pain
Facial pain
Knee pain
Labor pains
Low back pain
Neck pain
Postoperative pain
Tennis elbow
Treatment of Medical Conditions
In addition to pain management, acupuncture has also been proven effective for the treatment of all of the following:
Gastritis and gastrointestinal disorders
Morning sickness
Side effects, including nausea and vomiting, of radiation therapy and chemotherapy
Stroke rehabilitation
Several studies are currently underway to examine the potential of acupuncture therapy in the treatment of a wide range of other medical disorders and diseases. The list of medical conditions that can be treated with acupuncture therapy is therefore expected to grow exponentially in the coming decades.
How to Choose an Acupuncturist
If you have been thinking about getting acupuncture therapy for your medical condition, you need to make sure the acupuncturist you choose is licensed and certified. The following are four steps you should take if you are considering acupuncture therapy:
1. Get recommendations from your medical doctor or from friends and family members you trust.
2. Research the acupuncturist's training and credentials. Finding a naturopathic doctor who performs
acupuncture therapy is the best choice. At a minimum, the practitioner you choose should be licensed by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine.
3. Have a face-to-face interview with the acupuncturist. Ask questions about your treatment, including the benefits you can expect and how much it will cost.
4. Check with your insurance provider to find out if the treatment is covered under your insurance policy.
To learn more about acupuncture benefits, or to give acupuncture therapy a try, contact a licensed practitioner near you. A certified acupuncturist can evaluate your condition and come up with a therapy regimen that is best suited to treat your medical issues.

Deep Brain Stimulators (DBS) Market Growth Will Attribute To High Prevalence of Neurological Disorders

Industry Insights

The global market size for deep brain stimulators (DBS) in 2016 was worth USD 618.6 million and is anticipated to grow with a CAGR 17.2% throughout the forecast period. The growth can be attributed to the high prevalence of neurological disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease, epilepsy, essential tremor, dystonia, Parkinson’s diseases and obsessive-compulsive disorders. This in turn raises the clinical urgency to adopt of this stimulation device in aforementioned indications.

Rise in the geriatric population base, which is more susceptible to neurological disorders is also a high impact growth rendering driver. Also, coupled with advent of innovative and cost efficient technology for management of neurological disorders and chronic pain is expected to boost the growth potential throughout the forecast period. The advent of technologically advanced and sophisticated products such as implantable pulse generator (IPG) and consistent increase in R&D activities are projected to further impel lucrative opportunities in future.

IPG helps in efficient stimulation and provides varied proportions of electric current in between leads which are multi polar. The efficacy can also be increased with the use of feedback signals which are computer based to reduce risk of side effects. According to a report by Parkinson’s disease Foundation, the risk of Parkinson’s increases with increase in age with the median age for the disease being 55 to 60.

Also, the high prevalence of target diseases has a significant impact on the growth on the DBS industry. The inadequate efficacy associated with oral therapeutics, for instance, dopamine and its associated adverse effects are the major causes for the surge in adoption of DBS.
