This section is dedicated to writing on Herbal medicine.
Herbal medicine is the use of plants for medicinal purposes. Plants have been the basis for medical treatments through much of human history; Archaeological evidence for the use of herbs as medicine dates back to at least 60,000 years ago. Such traditional medicine is still widely practiced today. As herbal remedies are for the most part not backed by scientific evidence current medicine regards herbalism as an alternative mainstream medicine. Modern medicine has however adopted many of the key compounds found in herbal remedies after extensive scientific analysis and double blind clinical trials.
Phytotherapy is the recent science of applying modern standards of research to testing herbs and their extracted compounds for clinical effectiveness.
The books and articles in this section are designed to help you decide on the appropriateness and the evidence for particular herbal extracts and compounds that are in common use.
