Herbal medicine has been practiced for centuries. Herbology is the practice of treating health issues via the natural benefits of plants and plant extracts. Herbology is also referred to as herbalism, botanical medicine or phytotherapy.
The ancient Egyptian, Greek, South Asian and native American cultures among others have all contributed to herbal medicine’s traditions. But Chinese culture has done perhaps the most in bringing its efficacy to the attention of the modern world.
The World Health Organization estimates that fully 80% of the global population fulfills their primary health care needs via herbal remedies. The Western world is still becoming acquainted with many of the uses, advantages and powerful results found in herbal medicine. Many modern pharmaceutical drugs (from simple aspirin to drugs used to treat cancer) are synthetic modifications of naturally obtained, plant-derived substances.
