Building a healing garden in an Indian Medicine Wheel.
I have always had an interest in growing herbal remedies. When I lived in Pennsylvania I planted an extensive homeopathic garden and made my own tinctures and homeopathic remedies. 2 years ago I was introduced to Gabriel Howearth a world famous botanist and naturopathic doctor though my patients Dave and Ann Sward.

I have always had an interest in growing herbal remedies. When I lived in Pennsylvania I planted an extensive homeopathic garden and made my own tinctures and homeopathic remedies. 2 years ago I was introduced to Gabriel Howearth a world famous botanist and naturopathic doctor though my patients Dave and Ann Sward. The Sward’s praised Gabriel’s skill as a master herbalist. He supplied them with various healing remedies made form local herbs and plants. Gabriel has a healing botanical garden in LaRibera Mexico (90 miles north of Cabo San Lucas in Baja California). I had the wonderful experience of spending one week with Gabriel working in his botanical garden and learning the techniques of a master herbalist. He has collected healing plants from all over the world and he has structured planting based on the 4 primary directions of the Indian Medicine Wheel. Each direction has a certain energy and he matches the characteristics of the plant with the direction. My friend Eileen Nauman who is a Cherokee Shaman helped me select the location of the plants based on the key characteristics of the 4 directions
- North- earth element, black flowers
- South- Fire element, red flowers
- East- Air element, yellow flowers
- West- Water element, blue flowers
- Center- Green
“Gardening is another medium, like Yoga or The Dance, in which we cultivate both inner and outer Sacred Space. The way of the curve of the garden path, like the way of the curve of the dancer’s neck, imparts much to both the witness and gardener or the dancer. … Gardening, for many reasons, is an inner and an outer activity— a personal and a social, tribal or environmental activity. “
I was grateful to have John Hughes a 4th year medical student who was rotating through the Healing the Eye and Wellness Center to help with the medicine wheel.. John has a strong interest in alternative
medicine and volunteered to help me with the construction of the Medicine Wheel Garden.
Placing the soil in the wheel
Planting the seeds
Here are his comments:
“To the native peoples, planting a medicinal herb garden is as much about cultivating spiritual and earth connections as it is about the plants. Gardening, like the dance, the drumbeat, sandpainting,
pottery-making, basket weaving is quite earthy and simple but can also carry one’s awareness to profound levels. Such was my experience last week when I, as Dr. Kondrot’s fourth year medical student this month, chose to assist him one special day last week by shoveling dirt, laying water lines, and planting sacred herbs in a large medicine wheel in his backyard. It was indeed quite simple, dirty work but the ritualistic fashion of placing the herbs in their proper directions, respecting the clockwise nature of the wheel, and saying prayers for each of the tiny seeds made the whole earthy experience significant spiritually. As these plants germinate and grow into larger living beings for use as medicinal homeopathics and tinctures, perhaps their users will feel the same kind of simple, yet infinite sacredness cultivated since day one.”

We have planted over 25 healing herbs on March 9, 2007 and a few seedling are coming up already! A few of the herbs planted are:
Tulsi or Holy Basil. It is considerd a miracle plant in ayurvedic medicine. The plants extracts can be used to prevent and cure many illnesses like the common cold, headaches, stomach disorders, heart disease and malaria.
Spilanthes or Toothache plant. Some consider it much more powerful than Echinacea for treating infections. It has a very spicy warm taste which quickly spreads in your mouth. It is used to treat toothache, throat and gum infections. It is also used to treat dysentery, rheumatism and to enhance the immune system
Lippia Dulcis or Mayan Mint. It is an extremely sweet mint and the first time I tasted it in Mexico it brought a smile to my face unlike Spilanthes which brought a strong pucker! In additional to beign used as sweetener it is a remedy for abdominal pain, insomnia, fever in children, bee stings and insect bites.
Ephedra Viridis or Mormon Tea. The name is derived from the practice of the Mormon settlers collecting the stems to brew a tea which was used to treat urinary tract infections, respiratory illnesses,
colds and nasal infections. Related to Chinese Ephedra.
Lobelia or Indian Tobacco. Plant used to improve breathing in people with asthma, bronchitis and other pulmonary disorders. The seeds are very difficult to germinate and must be planted over the ashes of burned tobacco.
Euphrasia Officinalis or Eye bright. One of my favorite herbs but also very difficult to grow in Arizona. The seeds had to be kept in the freezer for several months (to duplicate a harsh winter) before planting. The plants may use is in treating eye conditions such as vision disturbances, infections and eyestrain.
It is also used to treat colds, coughs and sinus infections. It makes a nice tea to drink and to be used as a compress. In my practice I often use the plant tincture or the homeopathic preparation.
Next month I’ll go over how to make herbal tinctures and homeopathic remedies from these plants.
The Medicine Wheel Garden
Next Month we will introduce to Natural Pain Solutions!!
Dr. Kim Cooper Coordinator, Biomedical Sciences Program, Midwestern University–College of Health Sciences, Glendale, AZ, has agreed to be the statistician.

Most patients who have glaucoma are looking for natural methods for lowering the eye pressure and preserving their vision. We are now introducing 2 new products to help in lowerer your pressure and to preserve your vision in addition to our following standard products
Ocular Function spray– 3 sprays under the tongue twice a day
Glaucoma Formula– 3 capsules twice a day
Glaucoma Homeopathic Formula– 1 pellet twice a day
We are now introducing 2 additional Glaucoma Products
A-C Carbamide– also called urea which is a component of blood and and all tissue fluids. It is an essential lymph salt which functions as an osmotic regulator. In glaucoma aqueous fluid (Product of Lymph) accumulates in the eye producing an elevation of pressure. A-C Carbamide helps to regulate this lymph of the eye. In my Ophthalmology residency I can remember giving intravenous urea to patients prior to cataract surgery to help lower the eye pressure.This same substance can now be given orally to have the same effect.
Iplex- a combination formula for the health of the eye. It contains porcine brain especially the pineal, bovine liver, kidney and adrenal extracts. These ingredients aid in the ocular function of the eye.
