Botanical Medicine

herbs

Botanical medicine involves the use of plants for their healing properties. For example echinacea and garlic are great for colds, ginger and peppermint for digestion and calendula for healing scrapes and cuts.

Herbal Medicine existed prior to Conventional (pharmaceutical) Medicine and still provides us with viable and safe alternatives to regain and maintain health and vitality in our modern world. Many plants and their active ingredients continue to inspire pharmaceutical applications in the conventional system. Nature provides exactly what we need to stay healthy. Your Naturopathic Doctor can help guide you in herbal selections appropriate for your situation.  It is very important to remember that even though the plants are natural they are still medicine and can interfere with certain prescription drugs; caution is advised when combining prescription drugs and herbal medicines.
