Herbal medicine is about using the innate healing power of plants to gently restore a balanced state of health, also known as homeostasis.
But it's also far more than that. Herbal Medicine is humanity's most ancient system of health management: tombs have been excavated dating back over 60,000 years that contain numerous medicinal plants, buried with the occupant to ensure health in the afterlife. We have evolved alongside plants, and the phytochemicals they contain are perfectly matched to our own physiological needs. Herbs are essential sources of complex nutrients otherwise missing from today's oversimplified diets. And, because of their subtle energetic properties – and many that are not so subtle! – it is possible to perfectly match a herbal prescription to the needs of the individual.
Supporting humanity for millennia, yet holding the power to address many conditions against which 'modern' medicine is powerless, herbal medicine is truly the medicine of the past and of the future.
Natural remedies for every body
Herbal medicine treats the person, not the condition, and therefore has the potential to help anyone and everyone. Herbal medicine has been used for centuries to support the optimal functioning of multiple organ systems: nervous, digestive, the organs of detoxification - liver, kidney, bowels, skin and lymph - endocrine - i.e. the hormonal system - cardiovascular, respiratory and reproductive...the list goes on.
In short, if you'd like to be healthier - give the HerbSmith a call!
