What is Herbal Medicine?
Herbal medicine is plant medicine. Medicinal plants are taken externally or internally for their therapeutic values and medicinal effects. It is the oldest medicine on the planet. Every country on a global scale uses traditional herbal medicine, often as their primary healthcare system. Traditional knowledge base is vast, past on through word of mouth or in writings of old and current. With the arrival of the industrial age, increasing scientific research supports the beneficial use of herbal medicine. We use Herbal prescriptions to address a huge range of conditions, such as: Digestive issues, Immune dysfunction, Hormonal imbalances, Mood and Energy levels.
The main reason, due to personal surveys, as to why people prefer herbal medicine to conventional drugs is that it is natural, supports and strengthens the body and appears to have much less risks of side-effects. Herbal medicines are prescribed to bring the body back into some form of balance which is it naturally always striving to do. We use whole plant extracts as opposed to isolated constituents which reduces the side effects significantly.
