Natural and Herbal Remedies Guide

Natural and Herbal Remedies Guide

The use of natural and herbal remedies is on the rise. People often use natural and herbal remedies for long-term (chronic) conditions that haven't been successfully treated with Western medicine. People also use these remedies to improve their quality of life.

Many of these remedies deal with the whole person (holistic) rather than treating a specific disease or symptom. Sometimes, they heal aches and pains that over-the-counter and prescription drugs can't. Headaches, joint pain, and premenstrual syndrome are some examples.

Be careful - mixing natural substances with over-the-counter and prescription medication may produce some powerful and unexpected results. Before you start taking anything new, talk to a doctor or health care professional.
