Homemade herbal medicine : your essential guide to herbs & DIY remedies for health & healing By Reeves, Carmen

Herbal medicine, also called “herbalism” or sometimes “herbology,” is the ancient practice of using the plants around us in nature, or our gardens to promote healing.Long before modern medicine and the techniques of surgery, technology,pharmaceuticals and vaccines, people all around the world depended on herbs to protect their health and ward off even the gravest of illnesses.Depending on the culture, country, or region, there are hundreds of traditions of herbal practice that existed long before the advent of modern-day techniques. In fact, while “conventional medicine” may seem like the more dominant form of healing, statistically speaking the World Health Organization marks traditional medicine (including herbalism) the most prevalent form of healing in the world!
