Herbal medicine is the use of plants or plant extracts to prevent disease and improve health. A large number of plants have been studied for their specific health benefits. Most plants have multiple health benefits and many plants have compounding benefits when prescribed together. Naturopathic Doctors prescribe plants in various forms from liquid alcohol extracts to dried capsule forms. Plants can be as powerful and as effective as drugs, but usually have fewer side effects. To ensure effective results with herbal medicine, it is important to consult a qualified health care practitioner such as a Naturopathic Doctor.
