Botanical Medicine is a system of healing that uses plants and their constituents to prevent or treat disease and maintain optimal well-being. Modern research shows its effectiveness and safety when used properly. Naturopathic Doctors are currently the only health care providers in Canada to be regulated for the use of Botanical Medicine.
Botanical Medicine comes in many forms, depending on the plant used. It can be given as a tea, tincture, capsule, salve or essential oil. Herbal Medicine is used to treat a variety of health concerns, such as digestive, skin and hormonal concerns, depression, chronic fatigue, arthritis, cold and flu and many more.
