What is Herbal Medicine?

Knowledge of herbs predates the knowledge of the evolution of humankind.

Earliest discoveries of mankind include a close connection to medicinal herbs.

Ayurveda, the oldest complete system of herbal medicine, is more than 5000 years old.

Majority of medicines offered by medical doctors are based on the medicinal properties of plants.

Penicillin, for healing bacterial infections, was utilized by herbalists long before Alexander Fleming took credit.

Chemical synthesizing of  ‘recognized’ active ingredients of plants extracts a price on health & our planet.

Plants are too varied & complex chemically for scientists to duplicate holistic actions on the inner ecology.

Increasing numbers choose proven safer plant medicines for superior nutrients that support natural healing.
