How to include an HERBAL HEALTH PRACTICE in your Pathology Prevention plans.
Phytotherapy is a thriving medical modality that uses whole plants to treat whole people, facilitating the healing process within the framework of holistic medicine. It is both a science and art. With its roots deep in the past, it is still relevant and meaningful in the present, offering great potential contributions to modern medicine in all disciplines of caregiving.
Herbalism has a scope of use as wide as any form of medicine, as herbs may be used for any condition that is medically treatable, in addition to some ‘incurable’ chronic diseases. This statement is not meant to imply that herbs are a panacea for the ills of humanity! However, the ecological integration of plant activity with human physiology offers the potential for facilitating the healing process at any time in any situation.
