When I came across this news that African Who supports scientifically proven traditional medicine, the first reaction was yes! But then a second thought about cannabis came in and what secular science did to it. So I looked up at artemisia absinthium as a possible healing herb for covid19 and surely the same thing happened to artemisia or wormwood. This time – they took Thujone out.
Our ancestors did not genetically modify the herbs so their healing properties were very reliable. But once we touch their genes, we basically destroy their delicate mechanisms to receive the active cosmic substances which give them the healing abilities. Wormwood is not a poppy, it is very bitter and so hardly the most preferable psychedelic. The liver and kidneys react to it even when used for healing purposes. To get hyped, one would have to overdose, and in such a case what would be stronger, the psychedelic effect or liver and kidney pains?
There is also mostly worldwide applied compulsory irradiation of all herbs before they reach the customer, certainly those which are imported from the sub/tropical regions and it has extended to fruits and vegetables as well.
Genetic modifications and irradiation are enough to have a destructive impact not just on herbs but on the bodies as well. My knees certainly get painful the day after drinking irradiated fresh coconut juice. Delicious taste seems to stay though.
So why our secular science plays this destructive role on herbs? To purposely eliminate such mechanisms? The problem is not only in eliminating one particular substance. By doing so there are many other substances that participate in healing processes and our secular science has not discovered yet the means to detect them all. By altering the genes of herbs it has no means to find what else is being eliminated. As suggested in the famous case of poppies- esoteric science states there are 400 active cosmic substances in them. Can secular science demonstrate all of them? It is then very convenient to say that herbs actually do not have such magic properties as ‘folklore’ claims, that they can be dangerous and therefore the orthodox drugs are still the safest option. That is extremely unfair to Nature.
Esoteric scientists protect the herb kingdom from secular scientists as much as possible exactly for their ignorance of the higher order of science. For making the magic world eunuchoid.
The most obvious solution would be to introduce esoteric science to secular science, but psychologically, secular science still climbs the trees.
