botanical-medicineBotanical Medicine is the use of medicinal properties of plants or plant extracts in various preparations to treat or prevent illness. Evidence based herbal medicine is very effective and may play an important role in a patient’s treatment plan. When using the correct herbs in therapeutic doses, botanical medicine may be a safe alternative to conventional treatments with less harsh side effects. Using the entire herb rather than one isolated constituent provides effective therapy that supports the body’s natural healing processes.Examples of conditions in which botanical medicine may be indicated include skin conditions, asthma, cold and flus, digestive concerns, infertility, hormone balancing, menstrual irregularities, diabetes, autoimmune conditions and hypertension.
