Botanical medicine is the use of plants, or substances that come from plants, to treat or prevent disease. These plant substances can be used internally and/or externally in the form of extracts, tinctures, capsules, tablets, teas, and poultices, and may be recommended as a practical way to address a wide variety of medical conditions. Since ancient times, botanical medicine has been used by many different cultures throughout the world to treat illness and to assist bodily functions.
A resurgence of scientific research in Europe and Asia is demonstrating that many plant substances are powerful medicines and that some plant substances are superior to synthetic drugs in treating certain clinical conditions. Botanical medicine is safe and effective when used properly, and has been used throughout the world to treat or alleviate virtually every possible medical condition.
