Botanical Medicine - Naturopathy - Herbal Solutions Adults
Botanical medicine is a plant based medicine using herbal teas, tinctures, capsules, topical oils/salves/creams and other forms of herbal preparations to assist in the recovery from injury and disease.  The use of plants as a means of healing dates back to the beginning of civilization and is the foundation of modern pharmacology. When used properly, the mechanism of action of an herb will correct the underlying cause of an illness. This is the difference between herbal medicines and conventional medications or drugs.  Drugs use an isolated part of a plant and not the whole plant itself which is why a drug addresses a symptom of a disease and not the underlying cause of disease.

These plant based substances are also used for their nutritional value, immune enhancing abilities, ability to decrease blood pressure, balance  hormones, improve digestive function, balance the nervous system and for the prevention of disease. By combining historical information with modern herbal research, Naturopathic Doctors can prescribe the highest quality plant medicines to promote your body’s natural healing abilities.
