Herbal Medicine

Herbal medicine is the oldest form of health care known to mankind. Herbs have been used as medicine throughout various cultures longer than the written word. Herbalists use the leaves, flowers, stems, fruits, and roots of plants in a range of ways to prevent, relieve, and treat illness. Current Western herbal medicine uses individual herbs as well as complex herbal formulations, including raw herbs, tinctures, extracts, capsules, teas, tablets, lozenges, and ointments. Recently, there is an emerging interest and rediscovery of the healing power of these plants, as they have significantly less side effects and contraindications compared with pharmaceuticals. This is due to the nature of their therapeutic actions, working with the body, rather than fighting it.
