Medical Herbalism, one of the primary complementary approaches to medicine in many parts of the world. The use of plant extracts for treatment and prevention of diseases has shown a complete holistic framework of healing. One of the basic principles of herbal medicine is that all constituents in the whole plant extract work collectively to achieve therapeutic efficacy. Treatment with herbs aims to facilitate healing by influencing or stimulating the body’s own innate healing capacities in a manner that is safe and effective. Since they often work to support or influence balance in a particular body system, herbs can be considered to act as homeostatic agents.
