Herbal Medications

Herbal medications are a natural alternative that has been used for thousands of years. Over the ages, different cultures and herbalists have greatly contributed to the medical knowledge of this field, and this has produced a very impressive body of literature.


From the Chinese to the Indians and Arabs, a catalogue of herbs has been produced which can be used to treat hundreds of ailments, both common and more serious.


While some may question the effectiveness of herbs given the many people who have died as a result of common diseases prior to the introduction of modern medicine, one thing that you have to remember is that herbal knowledge was often kept secret from the masses throughout history, and such knowledge was usually reserved for a "priest" class who would reserve such knowledge for the nobility.

Additionally, when you consider the fact that the mass population of many regions was illiterate prior to the Enlightenment, and even after it, it is easy to see why even if they had such herbal manuscripts available, they would not have been able to read and use it.


Therefore, citing the large number of people who died as a result of common illnesses prior to the introduction of modern medicine is not useful in an argument against the usage of medical herbs.


Research has proven the effectiveness of many herbs, and when you consider the fact that they have been used for thousands of years in some cultures, it is easy to see why they must be effective.


Another factor that most people find impressive in regards to herbs is their lack of side effects. The only side effects that one may experience through herb usage is the combination of one herb with another. But these are natural side effects as opposed to the side effects which result from synthetic medications.
