What Is Herbalism?

Herbalism is a system of medicine using herbs and other natural strategies in the prevention or treatment of acute and chronic diseases and the maintenance of optimal health and wellbeing.

The Western herbalist blends traditional herbal wisdom of Europe and the Americas with contemporary scientific knowledge, while working with a holistic philosophy — that is, the consideration of the complete person: their body, mind and spirit — in the treatment of disease.
