Botanical Medicine

Medical-HerbalismMedicinal plants have an extensive history of use worldwide.  Plants continue to be a valuable part of health care, in the traditional sense of using whole plants and plant parts as medicine, also in inspiring targeted therapies at the molecular level. Plants and plant substances are highly effective and safe in the right dosage and when used correctly with other treatments. Herbs can be prepared in many forms – teas, tinctures, salves, foods or capsules. Naturopathic doctors are extensively trained in both the art and science of botanical medicine. Naturopathic doctors are currently the only health care providers in Canada to be regulated for the use of botanical medicine.
