|Herbalism is used
in Ayurvedic, Chinese, and Western medicine to aid in the healing process.
The cause of an illness is the main basis for diagnosis instead of just treating
and relieving symptoms. Herbs are said to remove toxins from the body
and promote healing in order to return the body to a balanced state of
health. They are prescribed according to which body system is affected
or requires stimulation to fight disease. Herbs can be used in many
different forms including pills, powders, extracts, ointments, tinctures,
and teas. Caution should always be used with herbs as reactions can
vary, many have side effects, and some can be toxic when used in excess.
