Medicinal Plants

Doctrine of Signatures

The Doctrine of Signatures offers an ancient guide for us to maintain our health naturally by accessing the proven power of plants. Ancient parables and proverbs provide us with profound principles, success strategies, and words with wisdom as clues for us to discover and follow. Maybe the Doctrine of Signatures is an example and a significant source of wisdom.

Have you ever stopped to look closely and notice the colors, designs, patterns, and shapes of plant-based whole foods? When you invest the energy and time to look closely you may discover that certain foods share a remarkable resemblance to the bones, cells, glands, and organs of human anatomy. The theory of the Doctrine of Signatures suggests that plants send us signals to help us identify which plants can help us maintain, nourish, and regenerate our bodies. Do you ever wonder if our creator designed plants to send signals and visual clues to help us choose which plants to consume to stay happy and healthy?

Antioxidant Berries

Are Plants Sending Signals?

Herbalists, medicine men, shamen, wise men, and wizards would say yes. Consider the following plant-based whole foods to see what you think about the insights offered by the Doctrine of Signatures:

  • Aloe vera and cactus can survive the brutal desert sun. Aloe vera and cactus are good for cooling sunburn and stomach issues.
  • Asparagus is long like bones and round like blood vessels. Green plants are alkaline and help both be healthier.
  • Avocadoes are shaped like a man’s testis and a woman’s uterus. Avocados are great for a healthy reproductive system. An avocado takes nine months to grow from start to finish.
  • Bananas are a rich source of magnesium and potassium. Bananas have been identified as beneficial for reproduction and sexual health.
  • Beets are dark red and round. Beet juice is a bright red color. Could these be clues that they are good for our blood and red blood cells?
  • Blueberries are loaded with antioxidants and round like our red blood cells.
  • Carrots are a root crop and have a unique pattern when we cut across them. Most people say the pattern looks similar to the iris of an eye. Carrots are also orange which is due to powerful antioxidants and carotenoids that coincidently are good for our eye health and vision. Roots like carrots are also good for healthy hair and teeth roots.
  • Celery stalks are long and narrow and are rich in calcium, silica, and sodium which help keep our bones strong.
  • Cherries are red and round and loaded with antioxidants to keep our red blood cells healthy.
  • Figs are shaped like a uterus. Figs are full of seeds much like human ovaries and testes.
  • Flowers are beautiful and can also help our eyes, hair, and skin stay beautiful. Dandelions, roses, and sunflowers are delicious and nutritious and a great source of Vitamin C.
  • Green plants contain chlorophyll, which is almost identical in structure to the hemoglobin in our blood. Chlorophyll is why green plants are great for every cell in our body.
  • Hemp plants grow like weeds. Hemp seeds are a great source of omega fatty acids and protein-rich food that will help adults and children develop strong bones, muscles, and teeth. Hemp has a tough plant fiber with many benefits and uses. Hemp seed oil provides cannabinoids and fuel that are good for our emotional, mental, and physical health. Humans survived and thrived due to the many benefits of hemp.
  • Kidney beans are shaped like our kidneys. We know that beans are a great source of plant-based protein which helps our body and kidney stay healthy.
  • Lemons, limes, oranges, and tangerines have skin similar to human skin. The skin of citrus fruit has essential oils in them just like our skin has essential oil glands to protect our skin from the environment. Citrus fruit when cut in half looks like a human mammary gland and is known for maintaining its function and healthy tissue.
  • Lychee is a fruit that looks like an eyeball. They are a rich source of antioxidants and vitamins that help with our eye health and vision.
  • Nuts are a good source of healthy fats and minerals. All nuts are seeds so they support all our cells and reproductive health.
  • Pomegranates have chambers like the heart and are full of red round seeds. They are high in antioxidants and minerals which are good for the egg cells, heart, red blood cells, and sperm cells.
  • Seaweed is flexible, strong, and grows fast. It is abundant and easy to harvest in most parts of the world. It is one of the best sources of minerals on the planet to help humans stay healthy.
  • Seeds like chia, flax, quinoa, sesame, and sunflower look like tiny cells and are super healthy for healthy cells. These seeds contain healthy fats and fibers that help provide fuel for our cells to create energy. These seeds also provide valuable fiber to feed the organisms in our gut called the microbiome.
  • Tomatoes are a deep red and when sliced they look similar to the chambers of the heart. The seeds look like red blood cells that would move through a beating heart. The antioxidant lycopene in tomatoes is great for our heart health.
  • Walnuts look a lot like the human brain. Walnuts provide healthy fats, minerals, and nutrients that we know are very important for maintaining a healthy brain and memory.
  • We could list hundreds of different plants and how they are good for our body and brain. We hope you have enjoyed the insights and agree that plants are sending signals to humans to help them make better food choices. We intend to encourage more people to choose more organic, plant-based whole foods.

At this point, two quantum questions come to mind. Are plants sending signals to help humans with their health and well-being?

“When will more humans begin to notice the Doctrine of Signatures and choose more plant-based and whole-food nutrition?” —Michael Morningstar
