Herbal Medicine by Somerset Health Practice
Every culture has a relationship with healing through herbs, which is thought to be the oldest known system of medicine.
Some cultures have retained this knowledge and expertise more than others.
Modern 'developed' cultures are paying more interest to the effectiveness of herbal medicines because of their lack of side effects and their ability to treat many conditions for which modern medicine has no cure.
