It is widely known known for it’s effectiveness.
How Does it Compare With Modern Medicine?
Interestingly, most modern medications have been derived from plants, seeds, leaves, flowers, roots, and berries found in nature. Chemists studied these herbal plants, extracted and then altered their active ingredients to create what we have come to know as allopathic, or mainstream medicine. It is estimated that about one fourth of pharmaceuticals have their origins in herbs. (UMMC)
