It is generally recognized that our ancestors had a wide range of medicinal plants at their disposal, and that they likewise possessed a profound understanding of plants’ healing powers. In fact, up until the twentieth century, every village and rural community had a wealth of herbal folklore. Tried and tested local plants were picked for a range of common health problems and taken as teas, applied as lotions, or even mixed with lard and rubbed in as an ointment! The oldest recorded uses of herbs have been in corrective or preventative medicine uses. Perhaps this is because much of the lore of herbs is derived from the herbals - the plant medicine books that are still in use by herbalists today.
Since the dawn of time, and encompassing an interwoven tapestry of cultures from the earliest civilizations, medicinal plants have been crucial in sustaining the health and the wellbeing of mankind. Many plants provided nutritious foods, fuel, oil, cosmetics, and fibre to make cloth and fabric dyes. At this time, there is much recorded historical evidence indicating that plants were also used to treat conditions and ailments. Therefore, given the life-enhancing benefits provided by so many plants, it is hardly surprising that most cultures believed plants to have magical as well as medicinal properties. Through time plants became surrounded by fables, legends and superstitions, and in some cultures plants were even considered to have souls!
How can herbalism help me?
Herbal medicine, also known as botanical medicine, phytotherapy, or phytomedicine - phyto from the Greek meaning plant, involves using a plant or part of a plant for healing purposes. The herbal part of a remedy may come from the flower, leaf, stem, seed, fruit, root or bark of the plant and it may be used to treat wounds as well as a vast range of other conditions such as allergies, skin disorders, fibromyalgia, migraine, as well as weight loss, anxiety and stress, to mention but a few. It is thought that the whole herbs, which contain many naturally occurring constituents, work together to produce a beneficial effect upon a condition or ailment when used as a remedy. This is unlike the mainstream pharmaceuticals that may contain just one single plant element or extract.
