Herbalism is a branch of the healing sciences that deals with the therapeutic properties of herbs and their effects on the body. This system of natural health care has been used by every culture and handed down from one generation to another, thus making it a "traditional" form of medicine.
The science and art of Herbal Medicine combine the knowledge of a plant's therapeutic parts and usage, the body systems(s) upon which it acts and which companion plants to use for support. The trained herbalist can assist you in determining what herbs will help you achieve optimum health.
HOW DO HERBS HEAL?
Herbalists believe that a healthy body has the ability to heal itself before "dis-ease" becomes disease. They also know that herbs contain medicinal compounds, which are in harmony with the cellular structure of the body. Together they work to build, tone and maintain body systems, thereby keeping one healthy.
