Botanical Medicine

Botanical medicine is the science and practice of using medicinal plants and extracts to improve overall health and treat disease. Alone or in combination with other naturopathic treatments, botanical medicine can be a safe and effective choice for addressing numerous health concerns. While licensed Naturopathic Doctors are also trained to prescribe certain pharmaceutical drugs, we emphasize less toxic substances that promote natural healing first, following the Therapeutic Order of treatment. I recommend botanicals in the form of teas (loose leaf herbs), tinctures (alcohol extracts), decoctions (boiling plant matter), powders, or tablets/capsules.
