Humans have a long history of using plants as medicine, long before the development of modern medicine. Herbs that have traditionally been used for centuries have been documented for their benefits and safety of use. In modern clinical research, we are starting to see active components being identified and data to back up the benefits of traditional herbal medicine.
When we use herbal medicine, we can heal the body in a gentle manner and with fewer side effects. Each plant has an affinity for a specific organ system and can be combined with complementary plants for maximal benefit.
Some benefits of herbal medicines include:
- boosting the immune system
- resolving microbial infections
- relieving pain
- balancing hormones
- stimulating detoxification
- improving digestion
- better sleep
- more energy
