Medicinal plants are the oldest form of “drugs” or health care used by humanity, their use is older then recorded history. In fact, most of modern pharmaceutical drugs are derived from plants. Plant medicine is more compatible to the human body then modern drug therapies and in most cases offers a better treatment approach for a wide range of medical diseases. I have no problem with modern drugs, they have there place in medicine; it is just a limited one.
With botanical medicine, plants offer additional benefits separate from the intended focus of treatment unlike the side effects of modern drugs. Plant medicine can be used in a liquid, capsule, or tea form. It is very important when using plant medicine that the best quality plants are used, most herbal medicine sold on the market today is poor quality and can cause more harm then good.
