Herbal Remedies
for Natural Healing

The use of herbal remedies focuses on long-term health, treating the underlying cause of illness rather than the symptoms. Generally speaking, herbal remedies are a form of alternative medicine.

From ancient medicine men to modern holistic healers, people from every culture have recognized the potent healing properties of plants and herbs. Chinese herbs have been used by the Chinese for over 4,000 years to promote health and as healing agents.

As modern medicine evolved around pharmaceutical concepts, it neglected herbal remedies for years. However now, in many nations, herbal remedies are being re-integrated into mainstream medicine and the Western approach to herbs for healing follows the conventional model of Western medicine. Herbalists are knowledgeable about specific remedies for specific diseases. You may consider finding a local herbalist or naturopath to augment your conventional health care.

Public interest in herbal healing has renewed, with more people exploring herbs and supplements as alternatives to conventional medicine.

You may want to begin to incorporate the benefits of natural health into your everyday life by stocking your medicine cabinet with herbal remedies, replacing non-natural brand-name products.

Beyond everyday herbal remedies, herbal medicine can treat many health problems and diseases such as high cholesterol, arthritis pain, weight loss, colds and flu, sexual dysfunction and more than seventy other common health concerns.

Herbs and herbal remedies are known to build, strengthen and heal the body. Harness the healing power of natural herbs to treat common health disorders and to live a healthier life. Herbal remedies are used with a focus on the natural healing abilities of the body.

Learn about herbs. Increase your knowledge. Experience the benefits.

Remember that the potency of herbal remedies can vary greatly depending on the source of the herb. Realize that the choices available to you are numerous... and not all are adequate, or even safe. For instance, most of the popular herbal drinks sold in convenience stores and supermarkets don't have enough of the healing herbs to have any effect on your body. Teas are the weakest form of herbal treatments and tinctures are the strongest.

Also keep in mind that until the industry adopts better quality standards, doctors and patients should be (and are often) cautious when prescribing and using herbal remedies. Regulations, quality assurance, safety and efficacy of herbal remedies in general, is what we need. These guidelines should outline standards for quality, quantity, and production of herbal remedies and provide labeling requirements that member countries must meet.

Due to this, it is important to always use herbs and formulas from reputable companies only, as well as the fact that the potency of herbal remedies can vary greatly.

The power and potency of the healing herbs are very real.

Guidelines for good health include diet, exercise, stress reduction, and herbal remedies.

Nourish your body, mind, and soul, using food, herbs, and healing arts.
