Benefits of Herbal Medicine

When properly sourced, formulated and administered, tailored herbal care can support the immune system, strengthen muscles and bones, and stimulate the healing of damaged tissue.

Herbs can support endocrine function, which can boost fertility, help in conditions like painful periods and the absence of periods, and manage changes in the second stage of life for women.

If the body is depleted from stress, age, or other conditions, strengthening through the proper use of tonic formulas is one of the best ways to replenish reserves and build vitality. For acute conditions, like bacterial or viral infections, formulas that assist the immune system and address the symptoms are recommended for short periods.

In some instances studies support that herbal care can help the body manage the side effects of Western treatments.

In addition to these and other benefits, medicinal herbs have also been used to:

  • improve vision
  • improve digestion
  • improve concentration and memory
  • aid in the management of physical, emotional, and mental stress
