Feel Better with Herbs of Kedem and Ancient Hebrew Medicine

Ancient historians have described the export of ointments from the Judean Desert throughout the Roman empire and beyond, at least until the 2nd century BCE. Now the modern company, Herbs of Kedem, has revived the historical use of these herbs for medicinal uses.

Amazed by their extraordinary success, researchers at Rambam hospital in Haifa have even begun a scientific study of one of their products.

In addition to cosmetics, Herbs of Kedem sells creams to heal various skin problems such as eczema, acne, fungus, and scar healing, allergy and respiratory problems, pain relief, oral care such as gingivitis, immune system problems and chronic fatigue, and more.

In fact, doctors in one department at Tel HaShomer hospital were so impressed with an ointment to help prevent gangrene in diabetics, they now recommend it to many of their patients.

The effectiveness of these desert herbs is due to their unique location between the hot, dry Dead Sea (the lowest place on earth at 400m below sea level), and the Judean Hills, with a rainier climate and an elevation of 1000m above sea level.

These two climatic extremes in such close proximity put an enormous stress level on the herbs of the Judean Desert. The hardy plants adapt through production of various natural chemicals called phytosteroids, which are extremely useful for medicinal purposes. Herbs of Kedem bases its remedies on four basic principles:

1. Using materials from the whole plant, instead of just isolating one chemical. Many modern medicines are based on one chemical, meaning you have to use a higher concentration of the chemical, making the product more toxic.

2. Many products contain materials from more than 10 types of plants, preventing resistance (as happens with antibiotics).

3. Refraining from using dangerous oils, even when they also have medicinal uses. This decreases the toxicity of the products.

4. The counter-effect principle: sometimes your body reacts well at first to a new medicine, but then becomes resistant to it. Using a broader content of the plant instead of isolated chemicals help to counter this effect — the varying components sometimes slightly counteract each other, thus neutralizing the body’s resistance.

    Due to their geographical placement, the plants used by Herbs of Kedem have high curative properties. I've used to suffer from a severe sinus infection and I developed a resistance to usual antibiotics. Natural medicine and ointments extracted from such plants helped me to relief my headaches and clear my sinuses. Sometimes nature has better cures for us than modern medicine.

    Salt water has been known to be a wonderful remedy for irritated nasal passages, especially in the viral cold and flu season, and for allergy sufferers. Its rich mineral mix reduces the inflammation in the vessels, reducing congestion as well as viral load, and can reduce the chance of developing sinus infections that result when viruses lag. The recent results of a study published in an American medical journal, The Archives of Otolaryngology: Head and Neck Surgery, support this well-known folk remedy. The basic recipe I like is 250 ml boiled water + 2 tsps sea salt (I like Gros Sel de Guerande, a coarse natural sea salt found in many food and health food stores in TelAviv (including Feldman on Balay Melacha and Noi Motzrei Teva on King George). Fill a 1-10 cc dropper with the warm solution (not too hot) and while tipping head back slightly over the sink, instill into nostril. Repeat in other nostril. Repeat 3 times a day. Use smaller dropper for smaller people. In small kids and babies you can pull mucus out using a bulb syringe after instilling the saline. It feels intense and works amazingly well, and you can continue to use it as a preventative when you recover!
