Botanical Medicine I – Description

Botanical medicine is the study of herbs and plants that are used for medicinal purposes.  Historically, some herbs were used for culinary spices, but the most important use of herb historically was medicinal.

For most of man’s existence, he has used various but limited resources for treating injuries and diseases.  Historically he has used magic, music, even psychotherapy, bleeding, amputation, physical therapy, diet, exercise; but of all of these, plant remedies represent the most continuous and universal form of therapy and treatment in the world.  Whatever else man may have done to themselves, and to each other in the name of medicine at various times, plants were the basic source of therapeutic products.  Hippocrates himself advocated the use of a few simple herbal drugs, or remedies, along with fresh air, rest, and proper diet.
