The benefits of herbal medicine cannot be overemphasised because, throughout human history, it has been used in the treatment of various ailments. Its origin takes root from almost every culture found around the world – Chinese, Indians, Native Americans and here in Africa. The application of the different natural, plant-based medications may vary, but it works on the same fundamental principle of returning the body to a state of natural balance in order to begin the healing process.
Herbal medications still remain very potent today and the enhanced forms can be found in almost all modern pharmaceutical drugs. But pure herbal medicines are available with the needed efficacy to treat your health challenges. For instance, aspirin is a conventional drug that is made by extracting salicylic acid from the meadowsweet plant, but this drug can have the side effect of causing the stomach lining to bleed, but if the meadowsweet plant itself is administered, the herb will still be effective in treating diseases without the side effect of damaging the stomach lining.
There are several benefits of herbal medicine, some of which include:
• Efficacy: One of the benefits of using herbal medicine is its efficacy. Over the years, herbal medicines have proven to be highly efficacious in the treatment of diseases and maintaining good health. This is due to the very active ingredients that are found in these natural herbs. For instance, turmeric contains curcumin a strong anti-oxidant that helps to strengthen the immune system. Ginger also has strong anti-inflammatory properties and natural honey is one of the strongest anti-bacterial substances known to man. Special formulations containing these natural remedies can effectively be used to tackle any health challenges.
• Treatment of root cause: Since herbal medicines are gotten from natural sources, they are easily absorbed into the body and transported by the blood and lymphatic system to specific target areas. Unlike conventional medicines and therapies that seek to soothe the symptoms, herbal medicines treat the root cause of the disease in the body which is far more effective as this helps to properly eliminate the problem.
• No harmful side effects: One of the benefits of herbal medicine is the minimal or no side effects on the body, most of which are due to the gradual healing effects of the medication. As the body slowly eliminates the toxins that have been broken down by the medicines, there might be some pains and feeling of nausea, but soon enough the process is completed and normal health is restored. Unlike conventional drugs that could damage organs due to their high toxicity and chemical content, herbal medicines help the body to naturally eliminate these toxins.
A well-regulated industry
Also, the herbal medicine industry is now regulated by a government board and products are thoroughly screened and certified by the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC). So gone are the days of poor packaging and unregulated drug dosage as herbal medicines now come in well-packaged capsules, tablets and syrups.
