The history of Nopalea and the healing Nopal cactus
The history behind Nopalea begins many thousands of years ago when Pima Indians in Sonoran Desert begin using the nopal cactus to treat many different kinds of illnesses. The nopal cactus, sometimes called â��prickly pearâ�� or â��cactus figsâ��, grows in vast numbers in the desert areas of Mexico and in some part of the United States. Nopal is another name for this thriving cactus, and Nopalea is the name used for the cactus in its juice form. The Native Indians of the desert regions where the Nopal cactus grows used this powerful cactus to treat many illnesses including swelling, edema, inflammation, pain, and immune issues. Itâ��s long history has made it a popular choice in the modern day by people looking for natural ways to create potent healing in their bodies.
Some people believe that the Nopal cactus's history goes back as far as 20,000 years when it was first used as a food by native cultures. Because of the arid and desolate areas where the Nopal cactus grows, it is likely that cultures were only able to settle these lands because of the presence of this special cactus plant. In many ancient cultures, the Nopal cactus was a saving help in times of drought and famine. It is believed that around 10,000 years ago Indigenous peoples began cultivating the Nopal cactus much like we would corn or other crops today. This allowed them to have a steady stream of food, drink, medicine, and even dye.
By the 1500â��s, the healing powers of the Nopal cactus were widely known and many explorers took note of the many uses the cactus had among the Native peoples. It was noted that the Indians would use the cactus to drink, make medicines, and even eat. Nopalea history had started to make itself known, and many people were aware of the healing powers of this beautiful desert plant.
