The use of herbs is a time-honoured approach to strengthening the body and treating disease.

The use of medicinal plants for treating diseases is probably the oldest existing method that mankind has used to try to cope with illness and states of unwellness. For this reason, medicinal plants have been used therapeutically all around the world, being an important aspect of various traditional medicine systems. From Ayurveda to Chinese Traditional Medicine to Tibetan, Amazonian and African Medicine, all systems of traditional medicine, although based on different theoretical and cultural models, integrate phytotherapy into their doctrine.
Throughout history we have relied on plants for both food and medicine; and so our bodies have evolved with an ability to assimilate the bio-active compounds in plants. This evolutionary relationship is important to herbal medicine because the body is accustomed to assimilating the more potent chemicals of herbs within the matrix of the whole plant. This means that, when properly used, herbs can often work with a high degree of effectiveness without the side-effects common in prescription drugs or over-the-counter medications.

Be Cautious!

...herbs can trigger side-effects and interact with other herbs, supplements, or medications...

Herbal medicines are not necessarily always safe simply because they are natural. Some have given rise to serious adverse reactions and some may contain chemicals that may produce long-term side effects. Herbal medicines will only benefit the health of human beings when they are used appropriately.

Know Thyself, Heal Thyself 

You should always use common sense and careful discretion when using herbal remedies. If you try something and it doesn’t work for you, you may have misinterpreted your symptoms and you might probably need to consult your health care practitioner. 
Additionally, try exercising patience when using herbs as the actions of many herbs are subtle and only manifest when used over time.
