According to the World Health Organization (WHO), herbalism is the use of crude plant material such as leaves, flowers, fruit, seed, stems, wood, bark, roots, rhizomes or other plant parts, which may be entire, fragmented or powdered.
The term herbalism refers to how to use medicinal herbs to work in synergy with our body, mind and spirit, how to use medicinal herbs to support our body’s intricate system to heal and cure, not suppress.
Herbal medicines are people’s medicines. Humans have been using herbs for thousands of years before single ingredient pharmaceutical drugs became the mainstream medicines.
Herbal medicines are nature’s gifts to mankind. And the best, you can grow your own medicinal herbs in your own backyard or simply in pots. Herbs are not fuzzy and don’t require lots of soil amendments like vegetables and fruits. As a matter of fact, too rich a soil will produce inferior herbs.
