Botanical Medicine is a form of medicine which utilizes plants, in different forms, to assist the body in its healing process. Botanicals or herbs can help every system of the body. We may use dried, powdered, or liquid forms of the herbs. We strive for safe effective doses while being aware of drug-herb and herb-herb interactions. These plants are used to boost the body into a healing phase.
We find botanical medicines to be clinically more effective in many conditions than pharmaceuticals. There are several reasons for this. The first is that herbs, applied appropriately, can give a gentler push on the body. Over time this trains the body to mount an appropriate response vs completely overriding it. Second is that the herbs have less deleterious side effects which allows the whole body to heal and more forward.
