Why herbal medicine?


Why herbal medicine?
Medicinal plants used for medicinal purposes, the older history of mankind and is the basis for modern medications.

In ancient times believed that the healer community has the healing properties of many plants discovered by observing the natural behavior of sick animals. If animals such as chickens, sheep, butterflies and chimpanzees and many other wild and domestic animals were sick with a virus or a bacterium, begin frequently to get bitter herbs, as scientists have discovered contains chemicals such as tannins and alkaloids are secondary metabolic products. These chemicals often have antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal and anthelmintic. These results lead the researchers to believe that wild and domestic animals have the innate ability to self-medication. See the example of lowland gorillas are found in the diet consume 90% of their food from the fruit of Aframomum melegueta, a relative of the ginger plant, which is a potent antimicrobial agent and keep diseases such as shigellosis and similar infections at bay. These observations will be passed on to the healers of the community, and from generation to generation, the medicine man could relatively easily prescribe a number of plants for a number of complaints.

As we are the 20th Century occurred medicinal plants has decreased, while the use of drugs has increased exponentially. When scientists examined the effects of herbs in the human disease, the substance in the plant-healing property is discovered, so that it is artificially by chemical synthesis from a population and is not aware that doctors and rescuers announced.

Herbal medicines or pharmaceutical products?

As previously mentioned drugs were chemically to produce a single ingredient, such as aspirin (from willow bark), digoxin (the plant), quinine (from Peruvian bark) and reduced morphine (opium poppy). The problem with these drugs is apparently a wonder that they have many unwanted side effects that must have only one ingredient so powerful and so isolated. If a person, the herbal medicines, including herbal and whole plant greatly reduced side effects and the treatment is much more subtle and a person can ever be healthy.

Herbal medicine can treat almost every disease, and many scientists began more about the effects of whole plants to treat everyday ailments research. Treat to see because the science is beginning to need the whole person and not the disease, the overall gains in health. Our bodies have gone through thousands of generations of change and have to heal themselves very addept. What our bodies need us, is the acceptance of the natural capacity for self-medication. The problem is that we forget what help plants that pain.
