Herbal medicine dates back thousands of years and is still used by over 80% of people in the southern hemisphere as the first line of medical treatment according to the world health organization (WHO).
It involves the use of plants with medicinal properties to assist the body in the healing process. Different plant parts are used depending on the actives in the herb, for example, Echinacea is best used as a fluid extract of the root, as this is where the alkylamides (active constituent) are located. Using the correct plant types and parts is essential to a successful treatment which is one of the reasons why you see better results under the care of a qualified naturopath.
