For centuries, up until the mid 1900's, humanity depended on nature for cures. The earth gives us everything we need just as it does all other life on it. Homeopathy was the more common and preferred method for treatments and staying healthy. Pharmacies used to print out medicinal charts and maps of plants. For an example of one, click here. (don't forget to zoom in on it).
Then David Rockerfeller, a known eugenicist, and the pharmaceutical companies came along. Rockerfeller, with vested interest in drug companies, gave large grants to universities and hospitals with the condition they teach allopathy (drugs). After this was established, he helped to create the American Medical Association which was designed to push pharmaceuticals and dismiss natural medicine.
To learn more of how and why allopathy began and homeopathy started to fade out, please see the well resourced video below by James Corbett.
Description that goes with above video: As Americans fret about the Obamacare website and wonder how the country became enslaved to the highest healthcare costs in the world, we turn back the pages to look at how the modern medical paradigm came together in the early 20th century, courtesy of the Rockefeller Foundation and their cronies. Join us this week as we explore the real history of modern healthcare and the real motivations behind the family that brought it to you.

Antioxidants and Flavonoids
You'll find in the below chart many medicinal plants that have healing powers due to their highly antioxidant properties.
What are antioxidants?
Answer 1: A substance that inhibits oxidation, especially one used to counteract the deterioration of stored food products. a substance such as vitamin C or E that removes potentially damaging oxidizing agents in a living organism (Source: online dictionary).
Answer 2: Any compound that can donate electrons and counteract free radicals has antioxidant properties. The following vitamins usually slow oxidation: vitamins A, C, and E, beta-carotene, and lycopene. (Source: http://greatist.com/health/what-are-antioxidants)
Answer 3: "Antioxidants come in several forms, including the vitamins A, C, and E; plant-derived polyphenols, found in colorful fruits and vegetables; and also the element selenium, found in nuts and broccoli." (Source: http://news.psu.edu/story/141171/2008/08/18/research/probing-question-how-do-antioxidants-work)
How do antioxidants work?
Another common element in healing foods is flavonoids. Flavonoids are a compound in plants and fruits that creates their pigment to give them their color. Flavonoids also have strong antioxidant functions which is common in foods that help prevent cancer.
What is the make up of flavonoids? "Flavonoids are polyphenolic molecules containing 15 carbon atoms and are soluble in water. They consist of two benzene rings connected by a short three carbon chain. One of the carbons in this chain is connected to a carbon in one of the benzine rings, either through an oxygen bridge or directly, which gives a third middle ring. The flavonoids can be divided into six major subtypes, which include chalcones, flavones, isoflavonoids, flavanones, anthoxanthins and anthocyanins". (SOURCE: http://www.news-medical.net/health/What-are-Flavonoids.aspx)
What makes flavonoids beneficial to us? Provides strong anti-oxidant functions which protects against oxidative and free radical damage.
