Herbs and plants are nature’s pharmacopeia and have been used as medicine for millennia. Every ancient culture has its own herbal medicine tradition based upon the herbs that grew in the local environment, i.e. Ayurvedic from India, Tibetan, Chinese, Native American, Celtic, etc. Plants are powerful healing allies to both animals and humans. They contain hundreds of different alkaloids that can have potent effects on the chemistry of the body, from killing tumor cells to stimulating the bone marrow to decreasing inflammation.
