Why natural herbal medicine
is the better option
Before the existence of conventional medicine; herbal remedies have been extensively used for centuries by people from all over the world. As a matter of fact, most of the modern medicine today is based on medicinal herbs. Recently, World Health Organisation (WHO) has also reported that most of the people today prefer to choose the latter than the former. But why? Well, here are the FOUR main reasons.
1) Less side effects
Herbal medicines are natural plant derives has lesser side effects compared to synthetic chemical-based drugs. Though the conventional drug provides faster solution, the chemical in it comes in high concentration, thus it may result in plenty of undesirable reaction. Also, considering that the human body is biologically more organic, therefore it is more inclined to assimilate natural resources rather a synthetic one.
2) Cheaper alternative
In comparison with conventional treatment, herbal medicine is more affordable. Not everyone can afford to pay for costly medical expenses, which is why, herbal remedy is the cheaper choice.
3) Easily assessible
Herbal medicine’s vast availability is another one of its advantage. You can basically get it almost anywhere; from a local drug store to a supermarket, or even in your garden for some herbs are easy to grow. For example, paracetamol is known for its painkilling property, but did you know that wasabi, cloves, and turmeric also have pain-relief function?
4) Improves overall health
A single herb plant contains a gathered and harmonious combination of health benefitting compounds which are safer for human ingestion. However, most modern medicine extracts a single chemical substance from an herb, and used it to counter a certain illness. Herbal remedies on the other hand, utilises the whole herb plant and enable the biological components and its ingredients in it to work in a synergistic way with our bodies, thus improving our overall health.
