What is Herbal Medicine

Additional Information

 Herbal medicine, also known as herbalism or botanical medicine, is the use of plants to inhibit and care for an illness, or to achieve good health. Since ancient times, herbal medicine has been used by many different cultures throughout the world to treat illness and to assist bodily functions. While herbal medicine is not a  licensed profession in the United States, herbal remedies in the form of  extracts, tinctures, capsules and tablets as well as teas may be  recommended by healthcare practitioners of many different disciplines as a practical way to address a wide variety of medical conditions. Unlike conventional drugs, in which a single, active chemical may be  extracted and isolated, herbal medicine usually makes use of the medicinal plant in its whole form.
