Herbal or botanical medicines are plant derived preparations that are used to treat and prevent disease. Plants have been used as a form of medicine as early as 3000 BC. Scientific research is increasingly validating the therapeutic effects of medicinal herbs. When used under the supervision of a practitioner, herbal medicine can be an effective and very safe form of treatment with fewer side effects than conventional medications.
