Herbal medicine has evolved with humankind
Plants have been used for all manner of ailments throughout the ages. Many systems have been used to determine what herbal medicine should be used for what. The signature doctorius maintains that all plants are endowed with physical markers that indicate their traditional use.
For example, Shepherd’s Purse has bladder shaped leaves, making this a valuable urinary tract support. Buchu has a pungent urine-like aroma so again the urinary tract is indicated. Ginseng root has a human-like form indicating its overall tonic effect.
Scientific herbalism dissects the pharmacological constituents of plants and ascertains the medicinal value this way. Other systems of healing use pendulums or kinesiology to determine the appropriateness of herbs for an individual. All the systems of herbal lore have some value and contribute to the way in which current herbalists practice.
Our bodies are remarkable and adaptive organisms. Combined with appropriate plant medicine, they are able to greatly improve their ability to cope with, and heal disease states.
