Herbal medicine is one of the oldest health sciences and is found in all cultures around the globe, including Western, Chinese, Ayurvedic and Aboriginal societies. As the oldest, and still the most widely used system of treatment in the world today, it is Herbal Medicine – medicine made exclusively from plants. It is also the teaching of medical plants used as medicines. The whole plant or parts of them, such as leaf, flower, root, etc. is used and processed into medicines and teas.
Nowadays this experience based medicine is illuminated from many angles, even from a scientific perspective.
Phytotherapeutic/herbal remedies usually have little to no side effects when professionaly handled.
