"If you are cold, tea will warm you;
if you are too heated, it will cool you;
if you are depressed, it will cheer you;
if you are excited, it will calm you."
What is Herbal Medicine?
Herbal medicine is the use of plants as a natural remedy for many common ailments. Plant medicine has been traditionally used for thousands of years. In fact, many pharmaceuticals (nearly 60%) are based on chemicals originally extracted from plants. Herbal medicine is not designed to replace western alopathic (modern) medicine. Instead, it is best suited when a gentler approach will do just as well.
Herbs are used in Holistic Medicine to help restore each whole, complete, and unique person to their most vibrant and vital self. Herbs have the strongest effect when used as complimentary medicine to other alopathic or natural remedies (such as diet, lifestyle choices, exercise, and supplements), can help build up the body’s natural defenses and treat the root causes of its dis-ease, rather than just the symptoms.
Different parts of plants are used, specific to each type of remedy, including the bark of trees, flowers, roots, stems, and leaves. Herbs are then either made into teas, oils, salves, or extracts to be used internally, or topically depending on the condtion.
