Moreover, Tamaya reveals several precious remedies from the East Indian and Asiatic traditions. Before Europeans settled in North America, the indigenous people were practicing herbalism. Native Americans selected plants through keen observations of the wildlife around them. They observed animals seeking out herbs and plants when they were sick and noticed their resulting recoveries. They experimented with these herbs and plants to heal themselves. Unfortunately, this knowledge was passed down by word¬ of mouth for the most part and has been almost forgotten by the present generations. Tamaya is aiming to bring their extensive understanding and healing wisdom of herbal remedies back to life. Develop a more holistic way of life and free yourself from conventional medicine. Pharmaceuticals focus on pathology, and many pharmaceuticals carry the risk of side effects. Herbal medicine focuses on the health and healing of the person and emphasizes whole-body care and prevention.
