Herbal Medicines

Today it is true that herbal medicine, is in better shape then the past.It often leads us back to the remedies nature offers. The possibilities of finding remedies to everyday illnesses in natural medicine are good. Most of the manufactured medicines we now have once came from animals and plants. For some time chemists isolated the life saving or life curing components and separated them from the harmful ones. This leads us to better health and understanding of treatments.We have semi synthetic drugs, as well as drug that more or less approximate more natural composition.
Since herbal supplements are made from a mixture of crude herbs reduced into powder or gel form, and later on packaged as tablets and capsules,there is a possibility that life threatening or a minimum body chemistry altering herbs are still present, these herbal supplements are not therapeutic. You do not substitute these for the medications prescribed by your doctor for the treatment of certain diseases, or for the maintenance of blood pressure, lowering of blood sugar and cholesterol, and fight off infections. You need to try them and decide how you feel to make sure the herbal medicine is right for you.
