Botanical medicine makes use of plants from around the world for their powerful healing properties and nutritional values. Naturopathic doctors use herbs from Europe, the Americas, China and India treat illness. Botanical extracts may come from flowers, roots, leaves or oils of a plant, which may then be delivered as teas, tinctures, ointments, essential oils and powdered extracts.
Harnessing the healing properties of plants is an ancient practice. People in all continents have long used plants for treatment of a wide variety of ailments.
It should be noted that, while they are natural, some herbal remedies have the potential to cause adverse reactions and drug interactions when used in combination with various prescription and over-the-counter pharmaceuticals. Dr. Frosina will carefully review your current health situation before recommending a specific botanical remedy or combination.
