Plant-based supplements, tinctures, and topical applications that assist the body in healing. These may include either western or oriental herbal formulas with time-honored traditional healing applications for various symptoms and conditions.
Many conventional medications were originally derived from plants. Plants are another tool in our toolkit that we can use to treat acute and chronic disease. They are a potent modality of providing optimal health and wellness. However just because something is natural, does not mean it is safe. Toxicity and interactions can occur especially with other pharmaceutical medications. Naturopathic doctors are equipped to do this as they obtain extensive training in botanical medicine.
