We have to hand it to our indigenous Khoe and San ancestors, they really knew about sustainability and how to find everything they needed in nature without destroying its future. And it seems that nature had an answer for every ailment too. Take the succulent known as ‘kougoed’ (Sceletium tortuosum; ‘kougoed’ literally means, ‘chew(able) things’ or ‘something to chew’), not only was it used as a natural mood enhancer it also happens to cure headaches, constipation and toothache. As one Khoe woman explained, “ ‘kougoed’ makes you love the whole world. It doesn’t matter how angry you are, eat just a little ‘kougoed’ and you will forget about your bad mood. It won’t make you fall down, walk with a high step, wake up with a hangover or go to jail…it won’t make you drunk or aggressive, but you will believe that no one is richer or more beautiful than you”. We could perhaps all do with a dose of that, especially on a Monday morning.
