Some Hawaii Medicinal Plants That Are Used Today

Hawaii Medicinal Plants

Many people have heard about Hawaii Medicinal Plants and the many herbs that grow in the islands. They also know that there are many plants that are used to make different teas, tisanes, and other products. Some of these plants have been used for many hundreds of years in Asia and some people think that they may be used by Native Americans for healing purposes as well.

Know About The Noni Tree

Green medicinal plant.

The Noni tree grows very well in marginal land and the tree itself has been called one of the most potent healers among the Hawaiian native herbs. The tree is a great tonic for the kidneys and liver and has been used in Japan since the 13th century. The tree has been used in China as an important healing herb for many thousands of years. The tree was also known as the king of all herbs and has the ability to heal skin, bones, joints, muscles, nerves, and the heart.

The tree is also a great tonic for the blood and lymphatic systems and is also very effective for the digestion of food. Noni is very useful for cleansing the blood and can help with inflammation and help with pain management. It is also used for many other things like to improve sleep and is an antiseptic. This powerful tree is also used in Chinese medicine to treat many types of health conditions. The leaves can be taken internally or applied topically on the skin for relief from pain and itchiness.

The most popular Hawaiian herb used for healing is the Kava, which is also known as Kava. The Kava has been used for thousands of years as a powerful herbal treatment for various ailments and diseases and is used in the United States and Europe.

There are many other Hawaii medicinal plants that are more common than some of the more exotic ones that are used in the United States. These include the Gingko Biloba, the Burdock Root, and even the Papaya fruit. The Papaya fruit has been used by the Chinese for thousands of years and is still used in some of their herbal remedies today. The Papaya fruit contains burdock root, which is a good laxative, digestive aid, and diuretic.

The Gingko Biloba herb 

The Gingko Biloba herb is used in the United States and is also found in many of the famous teas and herbal infusions used in the islands. It is used in the treatment of depression, anxiety, and stress and also in relieving fatigue. The Ginseng root is used as a stimulant to increase the oxygen supply to the brain and is also used for the treatment of hypertension.

The Rosemary plant is also very useful in the healing of cuts and wounds in the skin and has been used for centuries in Hawaii and it has also been used in the United States for treating coughs and colds and sore throats. The St. John’s Wort has been used to relieve depression and nervousness and to treat anxiety and insomnia in the eastern part of Asia.

Summing Up

For example the Gingko Biloba and the Papaya are no longer grown in Hawaii because they were used to make illegal supplements. So the plants that you may see sold in the grocery stores are no longer the same as the plants that were in the supermarkets and herbal shops before.
