What is Herbal Medicine and how can it Improve Health and Wellbeing?

What is Herbal Medicine?
Herbal medicine is made from plant (herb) extracts and can be as effective as conventional pharmaceutical drugs. Herbal medicine has been in use since thousands of years (recorded history indicates their use as far back as 6,000 years ago) and has sprung up from different cultures around the world. The preparation depends on their unique natural health philosophies regarding healing properties of herbs.

Ancient tribes in Egypt, India as well as the Aborigines in Australia used herbal medicines extensively. Herbal medicines have been in use for much longer than chemical drugs. In fact, many modern prescriptions were originally produced using herbs, shrubs and trees. Even today, most medicines are chemical impersonations of ingredients found in plants.

Although herbal medicine is classified as a complementary or alternate treatment in the developed world, it’s still used as first choice therapy in many countries.

Herbal medicine is extracted from different parts of the plant including the leaves, roots, bark, seed and flowers. Plants are known to possess powerful therapeutic properties due to their complex chemical makeup and direct absorption of sunlight.

They contain powerfully therapeutic ‘phyto-chemicals’ found exclusively in plants and herbs. When we consume herbal medicine, the digestive system assimilates the various ingredients and chemicals. The body ingests phyto-nutrients even from daily diet from vegetables and fruit.

Herbal medicines are concentrated sources of phyto-chemicals and usually have a strong taste. When we consume herbal medicine, it’s the natural chemicals that our bodies digest rather than the nutrients. Herbal medicine is available as herbal tablets, capsules, liquids, teas, balms and ointments among others.

Herbal medicine works by stimulating biological activity in the body and promoting internal healing and wellness. It’s very important to note that you should consume herbal medicine only after consulting a qualified herbalist.
