The aim of Herbal Medicine is to help bring the individual back to a state of health & balance no matter what the illness. This is done by treating the underlying cause of any imbalance. The following list provides you with examples of conditions that Herbal Medicine can help treat, but is certainly not limited to these.
Medical Herbalists incorporate their knowledge of medicinal plants, diet, nutrition, lifestyle & constitutional assessment, along with their understanding of medical diagnosis & lab test results to provide a holistic treatment plan unique to each individual.
Some Herbalists may also include elements of traditional medical systems from around the world such as Ayurveda (India), Traditional Chinese Medicine (China), Humoral (Greek) Medicine, Unani Tibb (Greco-Arabic) Medicine.
Herbal Medicine is the therapeutic use of medicinal plants to support the body in its natural healing process. It is a holistic healing art form integrating all aspects of a person’s health (physical, mental, emotional, & spiritual) to provide treatment that is unique to each individual.
Herbal Medicine uses various parts of medicinal plants like the roots, leaves, stems, flowers, seeds, and tree barks. Some remedies use all parts of a plant so the entire energy of the plant is captured and passed on to the individual when consumed.
Medicinal herbs are consumed in 3 common ways: Tinctures, powders and teas. Tinctures are water & alcoholic based extracts. Powders are made from dried plant parts and teas can be infused from either the fresh or dried plant.
Herbal Medicine is an important part of our daily lives. A lot of us have forgotten that most remedies are available right at our fingertips. In fact, they grow all around us! The beautiful dandelions that most consider as weeds make incredible healing remedies. The pungent garlic that is added to pasta sauce is a natural antibiotic in its raw form.
