What is Herbal Medicine
Herbal medicine has a long tradition in all cultures. Applications in practice have proven the huge benefits of herbs. As well as relieving symptoms, herbal medicine also works on a deeper level. Herbal medicine is becoming increasingly popular as more people seek out qualified herbalists.
