Who would have thought that Giraffe food would be medicine for Whiplash? Surprise, it is! The Giraffe’s leathery tongue enables her to eat her preferred diet from the prickly trees of the Acacia, Commiphora and Terminalia. These trees are commonly called Thorn trees, and have long been recognized by traditional cultures for their medicinal properties. In fact, the Commiphora is the main source of Myrrh, which is a principle ingredient of a Chinese herbal formula that I prescribe for Whiplash and other traumatic injuries.
