Western Herbal Medicine is a type of natural healthcare that utilizes herbal medicines therapeutically. It is one of the oldest forms of medicine, that has been built upon by the experience and wisdom of many generations of practicing medicine people throughout the world. The practice is founded upon the concept of Holistic Herbalism, which is a perspective and approach that considers the many unique aspects of an individual, including one's physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health.
