Also known as herbal medicine or herbalism, botanical medicine involves the use of plants to treat disease and promote balance/health.
Botanical medicine is used to improve overall health, promote wellness, and treat chronic and acute diseases. Botanical medicine can be combined with other naturopathic treatments and can treat a wide range of health issues, more specifically digestive disturbances, depression, heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, anxiety and obesity.
With minimal or no side effects, botanical medicine uses the chemistry and organizing power of plants to improve immunity and restore balance in the body.
Most pharmaceuticals today are derived from active ingredients in plant remedies. For example, aspirin came from willow bark, digoxin from foxglove, steroids from the wild yam and anti-cancer drugs from Madagascan periwinkle.
Herbal medicine has been used to treat or alleviate virtually every possible medical condition. Inside Health combines the traditional wisdom of herbal medicine with modern scientific research to provide a combination of herbs that is specifically designed for each patient.
