Useful and Interesting Tips about Herbal Treatments and Medications

Herbal therapy has been used to treat numerous medical conditions since the dawn of humankind. The right combination of herbal medicine taken at the right time can treat a great many conditions. But not everyone finds herbal treatments an easy solution because these natural mixtures can sometimes taste unpleasant and usually need to be taken consistently for months on end if you want to enjoy good results. 

In this guide, we are going to take a look at some interesting things that can make it easier for you to stick to your holistic treatment. 

What Is Herbal Therapy

Herbal therapy is also referred to as herbal medicine or herbalism. This therapy involves the study of pharmacognosy and the use of medicinal plants to treat different medical conditions. 

Herbal Medications Are Available In Different Forms

We often think of herbal treatments as teas that need to be sipped. But in these modern times, herbal treatments are sold in many different forms. You can get them in pill form, powder form, tincture form, as a tea and they are also available as bath salts, or are sold as gels, lotions or creams that need to be applied to the skin.

If you have a tough time swallowing or taking a certain herbal concoction then you should contact your TCM practitioner and hear if there is perhaps an alternative product like capsules or pills available that can be easier to use or consume.

What Herbs Are Used For Herbal Therapy

A great many different medicinal plants and herbs are used to make herbal treatments. Fungal, bee products, minerals, shells and other animal parts are also often included in these treatments to produce quality and effective medications. Over 450 different compounds are used in herbal medicine and these compounds can be used in different ways since medicinal or herbal plants can often be crushed, dried, brewed, chopped, powdered or liquefied to produce different types of products.

Herbal Therapy Isn’t A DIY Treatment

You can find a lot of helpful information on Google. Dr Google will often advise you how to use herbs to treat different medical conditions or might show you what different herbs are used for. But this advice can be very dangerous because the human body is extremely complex. Herbal therapy isn’t something you can do all on your own.

A good example is black pepper. This simple herb can be used for weight loss, headaches, sinus problems and depression but they can also make your blood pressure levels drop dangerously low if you naturally have thin blood or low blood pressure.

It can also be dangerous to misuse herbal products. Even green tea, for example, can be damaging if you drink too much of this healthy tea.

It is always best to use a trained TCM practitioner because even these natural treatments can be very dangerous if they are used in the wrong way.  

Modern Herbal Therapy Is Different From Historic Herbal Therapy

In modern herbal therapy, many remedies or extracts have been replaced by other substances. This is often done if a certain extract or species is hard to come by or is part of a list of endangered plant species. A substance used in modern Chinese herbal medicine is also a lot safer since more research has been done on individual plants and their impact on the human body. 

Herbal Therapy Only Work If You Take It Right

Most herbal remedies only work if you are consistent with your treatments. If you keep skipping doses or only use these treatments occasionally, you are not very likely to get good results. For effective results, you should always stick to the recommended dosage and treatment plan.
