What Is An Herbal Remedy
An herb is any plant that can be used to season our food or for medicinal purposes to heal the body. This includes trees, shrubs, flowers, vines and ferns. Regardless of their appearance, all herbal medicine contain one or more active ingredient. These can include vitamins and minerals, enzymes and essential oils. Non-toxic by nature, herbs are traditionally taken individually, or can be combined with other herbs. The non-toxic nature of herbs makes them safe and effective to use for a multitude of conditions.
Herbs are gentle remedies that have a mild, yet profound effect on the body. Unlike prescription medicines, which suppress symptoms, herbs work to restore balance to the body. Herbal medicine works to tone the body’s organs and glands, to supply the body with vitamins and nutrients and help the body to relieve itself of toxic accumulations. This makes the body strong and allows our natural internal healing processes to begin. They help us to ignite our own internal healing fires.
Working With Herbal Medicine
If you desire to utilize herbs for medicinal purposes, it is best to work with a qualified herbal practitioner. While herbs are in general safe and non-toxic, they are powerful remedies and should be treated as such. If you are currently on prescription medication, it is important that you consult with your primary health care physician before reducing or eliminating medications. I feel it is also important that you familiarize yourself with different herbal remedies. Talk with your herbal practitioner so that a safe and effective program can be identified specifically for you.
