Botanical Medicine

Botanical medicine is an ancient method of healing that uses herbs to treat illness. Today over 40% of pharmaceutical drugs are derived from plant parts. Botanicals contain the active molecules used to create drugs, as well as several other constituents that work synergistically to enhance the effects of the medicine and reduce side effects. 

How can botanical medicine help you?

Scientific evidence is now showing the value of herbal medicine in the treatment and prevention of disease. It can be particularly useful in the treatment of the following conditions:
