Not to be confused with Homeopathic medicines, most of our modern drugs even aspirin and heart drugs were originally derived from herbs. Plant materials can provide powerful useful medicines and even poisons. Do not think you are not using a drug if you use an herb. Depending on the source, you could be using a very strong, although natural, drug. Advantages of herbs: Herbs can work more gently than their synthetic counterparts. They contain more ingredients than synthetics or isolated chemicals and it is thought that this God provided balance can decrease or eliminate ill effects (so-called "side" effects) and even act synergistically to help the patient: they are usually less costly and gentler to the body: some act more as a nutritional support to aid the patient's immune system in healing.
A system of medical practice and healing discovered and elucidated by a German physician 200 years ago. The most basic tenet of homeopathy is the law of similars. This states that the thing that causes a set of symptoms in a healthy human patient can cure those symptoms in an ill patient regardless of the cause. Homeopathic remedies or medications come from all sources - vegetable, animal, mineral and now modern drugs and chemicals. Another principle of this method is that the remedies are such dilute amounts of the original substances that there can be none of the substance left in the final preparation. This is a concept that many good physicians cannot grasp or accept, as it seems to defy modern scientific method. In fact, homeopathy has a vast scientific history and is more rational in its approach than today's pragmatic medical practice. It is just alien to how most of us have been trained. Homeopathy is not herbal medicine. Homeopathy is holistic when practiced according to the laws of Dr. Hahnemann.
