Herbal medicine and conventional medicine

herbal medicine

Herbal medicine is the use of medicinal plants for the prevention and treatment of diseases.

Many Herbs contain a large number of naturally occurring chemicals (compounds) that have biological activity.

Herbal remedies advised for chronic or long-term problems or to prevent certain conditions by supporting the body. 

Herbs on one side work similarly to many pharmaceutical preparations, and on the other side, herbal remedies can help your body to deal with more than one symptom, it is a full support system.

Plants offer many ways to maintain health, but this does not mean that herbs are always the default treatment.

Herbal medicine is not the method for a person who has broken his hand or to treat the severe infections that are life-risking.

The range of medical treatment methods offered today is an asset! 

All methods can work together and support each other.

Traditional knowledge of Western herbal medicine supports experiential approaches to healing that have evolved.

Medicinal plants are complex, adaptive, environmentally interactive systems. 

Herbal remedies exhibit synergy and nonlinear healing causality. 1

The NHS recommends to be aware of a few issues if you’re taking, or plan to take any herbal medicines:

  • They may cause problems if you’re taking other medicines. They could result in reduced or enhanced effects of the drug, including potential side effects. 2
  • You must check with your doctor for any adverse effect before taking medication and herbs at the same time. 
  • Not all herbal medicines are regulated. Remedies specially prepared for individuals don’t need a licence, and those manufactured outside the UK may not be subject to regulation. 2
  • Buy Herbal remedies only from a supplier that you trust, make sure they have all the certifications to sell herbs.

Herbal remedies can offer a wide range of natural solutions for different health concerns.
