Herbal Medicine is a traditional medical practice based on the use of plants and plant extracts. Herbal medicine is also known as herbalism, botanical medicine, medical herbalism, herbology and phytotherapy. Herbal Medicine is the basis of pharmaceutical drugs. Herbs play an important role in the formulation of many medications and dietary supplements. Herbal medicine is a fantastic alternative to conventional drugs as it treats the body wholistically (mentally and emotionally as well as physically). Pharmaceutical drugs are a synthesized version of the plant active constituents and do not act in the same way as the plants. Herbal medicine is a gentle and effective way to support many conditions, such as asthma, eczema, premenstrual syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, migraine, menopausal symptoms, chronic fatigue and irritable bowel syndrome amongst others.
