What is herbal medicine
Every early civilisation used plants as their main source of medicine, and most of the world’s population still rely on them today. Around a quarter of all pharmaceutical drugs currently prescribed by doctors were originally derived from plants. However, herbs contain many active ingredients, unlike the single chemical in a drug. Plant medicines are selected to stimulate or strengthen the body’s normal functions, and so help the body heal itself.
