When you think about how healthy foods are packed with true healing forces -- vitamins, minerals, antioxidants -- it's enough to make you want to turn to your garden's fruits, vegetables and herbs for all that ails you. Often, this prompts us to look to nature to find cures or treatments to boost our health.

Well, as a matter of fact, there are such claims about some readily available herbs. You just need to be your own health advocate and proceed wisely when or if you introduce them into your health care regimen. Even though much research is still needed to prove the effectiveness of herbs, they may be something to consider. Read on to learn about what five natural herbs might do for your health and what the science has to say about them.
