There is nothing new about the use of herbs to promote recovery, health and well being. Every culture around the world has used plants as healing medicine. As the name implies,”holistic” medicine deals with the whole person. It treats the body as a whole and integrated system, not a collection of isolated parts. Herbal medicine works synergistically. There is an emphasis on the uniqueness of the individual, and the importance of tailoring a treatment to meet each persons very different needs.
