Herbalism in the practice of using plants in a holistic manner to treat and prevent disease. Herbs are used to support the healing process of the body and for their specific areas of actions.
Herbs can be understood by us all. They are plants that grow around us, they are part of our culture and our inheritance, wherever we live and whatever tradition we are part of. They don’t require sophisticated processing and they don’t create harmful waste or side effects.
Herbs support the healing process of the body and tend to be used to treat or rebalance a particular system in the body. They may be given in the form of teas, tinctures and tablets.
