Herbal Remedies

Why Use Herbal Remedies?

Herbal medicine, also known as herbalism or botanical medicine, is still the most widely used system of medicine in the world today. It is a medical system based exclusively on the use of plants or plant extracts that may be eaten or applied to the skin. Since ancient times, herbal medicine has been used by many different cultures throughout the world to treat illness and to assist bodily functions.

NOTE: Some products labeled "natural" are not always safe. Herbal remedies are not required to go through the testing that commercial drugs do. Some herbs, such as comfrey and ephedra, can cause serious harm. Some herbs can interact with prescription or over-the-counter medicines.

Always, always, always consult a qualified physician or naturopath prior to using herbal remedies.

What are Herbal Remedies?

An herb is a plant or plant part used for its scent, flavor, or therapeutic properties. Herbal remedies are one type of dietary supplement. They are sold as tablets, capsules, powders, teas, extracts, and fresh or dried plants. Using plants as medicine provides significant advantages for treating many conditions. The therapeutic activity of a plant is due to its complex chemical nature with different parts of the plant providing certain therapeutic effects.

Full Spectrum Method vs "Standardized" Extracts

You may have heard the term "standardized" extract used in relation to natural herbal remedies, but do you know what it means?

Many pharmaceutical companies have begun manufacturing herbal remedies using an extraction process where harsh chemicals are used to extract the active ingredients of medicinal herbs. You can recognize these extracts by the usage of the words "standardized extract" on the labels.

This method of manufacturing is often cited as being more scientific and able to produce a superior product with controlled and guaranteed amounts of active ingredients in each product. Contrary to these claims, this process is not approved by the manufacturers of holistic medicines.

One reason, the extraction process and isolation of the so-called "active ingredients" from the herb has resulted in an increase in side effects, as the herb loses its natural ability to protect against side effects. In addition, many manufacturers use all parts of the plants to create "standardized" extracts, whereas herbalists understand that only certain parts of some herbs should be used.

For example, it is well known that the seeds of the Ginkgo Biloba plant are poisonous and can cause seizures, and only the leaves should be used. "Standardized" extracts of Ginkgo Biloba have been associated with the risk of seizure in some trials. The most recent example of the dangers associated with using this manufacturing process includes the development of liver toxicity from using Kava Kava extract, an herb which has been safely used for hundreds of years!

Another reason, this extraction process also requires the use of harsh chemicals and solvents, traces of which are difficult to completely remove from the final product.

It makes little sense for companies to go the "natural" route, while unable to guarantee their products are free from contamination with chemicals known to be harmful to your health!

Unlike the many so-called "all natural herbal remedies" manufactured according to the methods described above, we recommend the natural herbal remedies made by Native Remedies. A company that avoids "standardized" extracts completely and uses the Full Spectrum method of extraction, which is recommended by all the authoritative Materia Medica dealing with herbal medicine.

This helps to maintain the integrity, balance and therapeutic effect of herbs, with the least risk of side effects or harm to your health!

When you purchase Native Remedies all natural remedies for health, you can be confident that you're receiving a product that has been manufactured to the highest standards of health, production and effectiveness!
