This week I was asked a question:
Is there something that can be done to recover an atrophied optic nerve? Can herbs help?
My answer can be applied to all atrophy in the body.
Have I actually seen this work? Yes I have.
There was a woman who had atrophy in various parts of the body after a severe stroke. I have personally seen the power of herbs combined with exercises that increase blood circulation to the area. I have also seen atrophy caused by malnutrition in the developing years, reversed. I have also seen atrophy caused by sitting at a desk job for 40 years, reversed.
I have also seen again and again that while doing so results in some benefits, it is ultimately the overall health and vitality levels of the body that decide what happens. A healthy body will heal and recover its atrophied parts on its own.
It’s part of life – that some parts of us atrophy for a while, and then we need that part again and the body gets it working again.
So in order of importance here are the three things one can do to recover an atrophied part of the body.
1) Drastically increase overall energy and health.
2) Increase blood circulation to the area.
3) Support regeneration of brain and nerve cells
I couldn’t complete this article without at least one picture, so here’s one of this beautiful wild pink grass called Melinis Repens, with a little Pampas grass in the middle.
