If medicinal herbs are safe and effective, why aren't they more popular?
The truth is, people have been using herbal medicines for thousands of years and they remain very popular today throughout the world. It is only a more recent development in Western urbanized areas that people became more distant from this knowledge. As cities grew denser and plants become more sparse in those areas, people lost access to the traditional remedies and knowledge of their ancestors. Fortunately, the Complementary and Alternative field, which includes herbal remedies, has been steadily regaining its popularity in urban areas as people look for more natural and accessible ways to support their health.
Can herbal products replace the need for pharmeceuticals and medical physicians?
Herbal products act as supplements to help you support your body's needs by providing nutrients that you may be deficient in or by increasing specific nutrients to boost certain functions like your immune system. Supporting your body's needs can improve your overall health but you should never use these products as a sole means to diagnose, cure, or heal illness or injury without visiting a physician. It is also important to be aware that some herbal supplements may be complementary to increasing the benefits of standard western medicines while some may interfere with those medicines and practices so always check in with your doctor first and tell them of any herbal supplements you may be taking.
