What is Botanical Medicine?
Botanical medicine is the use of medicinal plants and herbs to support, restore, and optimize health. Botanical medicine has been used for centuries to either prevent or treat disease. Active ingredients are extrapolated from either flowers, stems, leaves, bark, roots, berries, cones; and then made into tinctures or pills for consumption. Popular medicinal plants include echinacea, ginkgo, astragalus, chamomile, goldenseal, passion flower, mint, and milk thistle.
Many medical conditions can be treated with botanicals, including headaches, asthma, colds/flu, coughs, indigestion, infections, gastrointestinal ulcers, irritable bowel syndrome, hormonal disorders, PMS, urinary tract infections, anxiety, depression, skin conditions, and many more. Botanicals are extremely popular worldwide and very safe to use under proper training and supervision. Here in the U.S., they are a very common and effective form of Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM).
