Herbal medicine, also known as botanical medicine, is the use of plants and plant extracts for their medicinal properties. Many of our current pharmaceutical drugs are actually based on compounds isolated from
plants. When used in their whole and original form,herbal medicine is generally better tolerated and just as effective.
It is important to note that some botanicals can interfere with prescription medications and a naturopathic doctor is best suited to determine what combinations are best and safe for you.
