There is Nothing New Under the Sun

Ecclesiastes 1:9-10Is there anything of which one can say, "Look! This is something new"?  It was here already, long ago; it was here before our time.” 
"That which has been, is that which shall be; and that which hath been done, is that which will be done: and there is nothing new under the sun.”
Ecclesiastes 6:10Whatever exists has already been named."

Famous words attributed to King Solomon.

Is it possible there is nothing new under the sun? With all we know, all we have learned in the centuries since Solomon lived and reigned, surely we are ahead; surely we are smarter, surely we have uncovered or discovered some thing that didn’t exist before.

I was told Ayurvedic healing methods are a new phenomenon, completely unheard of in the United States. So I investigated the herbs used and discovered these are the same herbs used since the beginning of time. What we see sold now as “new and different” Ayurvedic herbs are plant materials with Asian names, not English or Latin.

Unlike the Spanish explorers and colonizers who were anxious to find gold and save souls, the English explorers were interested in expanding beyond their small island kingdom and were especially keen on botany - finding new plants to grow on their island home and enriching their colonies with foods and herbs.

For quite some time, “the sun never set on the British Empire.” Truly, the British colonies could be found on every continent. The Brits cataloged plant materials, medicinal herbs and minerals, bestowing Latin names for species, and identified how the healing herbs could be used. Homeopathy was their medicine then, and still is to a large extent.

And that is where we find Ayurvedic medicines today, in the old homeopathy books and in the homeopathic remedies, in the Bach Flowers, herbs and herbal tinctures, and essential oils, all of which have been in use for centuries. 

Each region of the world, and even tribe to tribe has its own native plants used for healing. Whether you call it bush medicine or foraging, you’ll find there is nothing new under the sun. It is just that we have forgotten or the traditions have not been handed down. Or the drug ads on TV have bamboozled us into thinking "they" know best. 

Find out what the ancients used for healing, it is in our DNA chip, and in our collective DNA.
