Herbalism, or botanical medicine, can offer a complete system of healing and prevention. When skillfully applied via a trained CAM practitioner, they can help provide general health benefits and relief of symptoms.
Herbs have long been revered for their powerful properties and can be viewed as a precursor to modern pharmacology. They continue to be effective and natural antidotes today. Because they are considered organic substances and not man-made synthetic molecules, they possess an affinity for the human organism.
However, due to recent legislation, some herbal remedies have seen changes in their availability. Some are now being classed as food supplements and supply of these products has continued as normal.
