Plants As Medicines

Every culture that has ever existed on this planet has developed a system of medicine to relieve or to heal the many discomforts and illnesses that afflict the body. Such traditional medicines almost always utilize herbs, roots, barks, and seeds, although other specialized techniques sometimes also play a role. The Herbal Knowledge that has accumulated over the centuries is based on a vast amount of empirical observation.

It is a vast and wonderful field of study, that not only gives us insights into the properties of various phytochemicals and their actions on the body, but also into the philosophy of life, health, and healing which varies widely between cultures. There are many kinds of medicines and many of them show great results even though the rationale behind them could not be more different. 

The posts in this section focus on different aspects of herbalism, healing, and medical philosophy.
