They are ancient
Herbal remedies have been a part of the human evolution experience for thousands, perhaps even millions of years. Its been through trial and error alongside the evolution of man. Herbs have been used by many cultures such as Traditional Chinese Medicine, Ayurveda Medicine, Western Herbal Medicine, and many more.
Herbal medicines are natural with very little man-made alterations.
Herbs compliment our bodies
Plants are made up of thousands of constituents. These are active chemical compounds each with its own effect and purpose. These actions can include growth regulation, provide protection from environmental factors such as maintaining moisture to prevent dehydration, encourage healing, combat disease, repel insects and so on.
The human body and plants have numerous similarities in molecules and chemical compounds. This allows the actions of herbal constituents to compliment the constituents in our bodies. A whole plant contains more constituents which has a different overall action on the body.
Constituents work together to eliminate disease and create balance in the body. There is a higher risk of side effects, without these components working together. When there is balance in the body it results in self-healing and it gives the body the strength to fight and reject illness. Herbs also provide nutrients, trace elements, and energy.
Prevention is better than cure
The practice of herbal medicine focus on identifying and treating the root of our problems and illness, resulting in a long-lasting cure. A person’s lifestyle is considered and herbs are used to promote good health as well as create preventative measures.

“Plants hold many of the secrets of life itself and
a lot of people overlook the plants, but technically they hold
the secrets to health, well-being, wisdom, healing, and abundance.
Everything in life that you want to do, there is a plant ally that can help you”
