Botanical medicine is a great way to use herbs to help improve your symptoms. Herbs can even be a replacement for many medications. All pharmaceuticals have an active ingredient that affects the body, essentially turning something on or off. This is what makes drugs so effective in their treatment but also what creates potential side effects. The body works through pathways with many molecules having more than one function. For this reason, if you turn one thing off, you may be affecting much more than you would like.
Many drugs came from one thing, herbs. Herbs are plants that have shown medicinal value in both traditional and modern medicine. Herbs work similarly to pharmaceutics, but they have different ingredients that balance out the effects. This wholesome approach allows a process to become more regulated, instead of being turned completely on or off. Most botanicals are also used in a formula, which mixes a range of other herbs to make a full body and balanced treatment.
