Herbal Medicine in Florida

What is Herbal Medicine?

Herbal medicine is the study of pharmacognosy and the use of medicinal plants, which are a basis of traditional medicine. Herbal medicine has its origins in ancient cultures.

Chinese herbalism is one of the most prevalent of the ancient herbal traditions currently practiced. It is based on concepts of yin and yang and of Qi energy.

Herbal medicine is the use of plants to treat disease and enhance general health.

The use of plants for healing purposes predates recorded history and forms the origin of much of modern medicine. Many conventional drugs originate from plant sources: a century ago, most of the few effective drugs were plant-based. Examples include aspirin (from willow bark), digoxin (from foxglove), quinine (from cinchona bark), and morphine (from the opium poppy)

Herbal supplements come in all forms: dried, chopped, powdered, capsule, or liquid, and can be used in various ways.

The FDA considers herbal supplements foods, not drugs. Therefore, they are not subject to the same testing, manufacturing, and labeling standards and regulations as drugs. Talk to your doctor about your symptoms and discuss herbal supplements before use.
