Hello Community,

Herbal remedies are made from plant materials that are used to treat disease and help maintain good health. They have been used since the beginning of human history. There are different traditions that use plants as remedies.

* Ayurveda. This Indian tradition uses herbal remedies, yoga, massage, diet and meditation.
* Traditional Chinese medicine. This works on similar principles as Ayurveda and uses herbs to boost or disperse qi (energy).
* Kampo. This Japanese tradition uses similar techniques to Chinese medicine and involves the study of herbs to help treat illness.
* Traditional Tibetan medicine. This uses herbal remedies as well as diet changes and therapies such as acupuncture to help treat illness.
* Unani-tibb. This Indian tradition has an emphasis on restoring balance by encouraging healing from within.
* Western herbal medicine. This uses herbal remedies and focuses on the person as a whole, not the illness.

Thanks and Regards,
Daquan Gibson
