Herbal medicine goes back thousands of years.  It derives from Wo/Man's needs for health and strength; cures for ills and the mending of wounds.  Many of today's medicines have come from this primitive botanical compilation.  Some have been discarded for stronger, supposedly more certain, synthetic drugs while others are still used, in many parts of the world, in their natural form.

     The gathering and preparing of herbs is specialized work, but one which anyone of average intelligence may safely undertake with proper training.  When selecting plants, always try to refer to them by their Latin names FOR POSITIVE IDENTIFICATION.  Please heed the warnings of the herbs listed here.  One should ALWAYS consult with a physician before taking herbs to prevent drug interactions and allergic reactions. 

Pregnant women should not use these herbs.
