Also known as herbal medicine or herbalism, botanical medicine involves the use of plants to treat disease and promote health. Animals and plants have evolved alongside each other for millennia, so it makes sense that our bodies respond readily to plant medicines.
Most pharmaceuticals today are derived from the active ingredients in plant remedies. For example, aspirin came from willow bark, digoxin from foxglove, steroids from the wild yam and anti-cancer drugs from Madagascan periwinkle.
Herbal medicine has been used to treat or alleviate virtually every possible medical condition. Inside Health combines the traditional wisdom of herbal medicine with modern scientific research to provide a combination of herbs that is specifically designed for each patient.
