Botanical Medicine is the study and use of herbs to treat a wide range of medical conditions. Many pharmaceutical agents are derived from plant compounds and are synthesized in the laboratory. This makes them more potent and specific, but consequently strips them of their natural energy and synergism for the human body. This is evident with the mounting manifestation of “drug-illnesses” created from the side effects of drugs
Although Herbal Medicine is a gentler and more holistic approach to treatment, not all natural products are necessarily safe. Natural products can have harmful interactions with certain drugs and/or medical conditions.
