Description

Plant medicine has been used in a therapeutic fashion since antiquity in the healing of the body, mind, and spirit. This philosophy is our heritage. Herbal medicine uses a holistic approach to healing and shows ways of enhancement, rather than just treating symptoms. Symptoms are our body's way of signalling that something is wrong and needs attention. Herbalism is the use of plants as medicines for healing. Its traditions are as old as mankind itself, and until the 18th century it was used as the most common form of medical treatment in Europe and North America. Today, in tribal cultures and among countries with Eastern traditions, such as China and India, medicinal herbs are still widely used. In more conventional medicine, pharmaceutical companies and doctors rely on plants as the basis of many drugs. The Herbal Healing Handbook is divided into three main sections. You may choose to read parts of it for general interest, or consult it for treatment for different ailments. It is a reference for herbs that may be used simply and effectively to treat a wide variety of complaints. It seeks to give you a greater understanding of how the body works, and how to use herbal medicine.
