Herbal medicine has been practised for centuries, not just in Australia but in all over the world. Until about 50 years ago nearly all of the entries in pharmacopoeias describing the manufacture of drugs indicated a herbal origin.
For example, Aspirin was discovered in the last century from the herb willow bark. It was done by isolating one of its active constituents which is salicin. Today, the World Health Organization (WHO) recognizes that herbs are the most widespread form of medicine used by people living on our planet.
Naturopathically, they can be taken in a variety of forms. And, when administered properly, they have a profoundly positive effect on an individual’s health.
