Natural medicine has a millennial history of treating health issues, but in many cases these treatments have not been validated in the Western medical tradition.
Introduction to medicinal plants
Most of us are now aware that there are specific medicinal properties offered by different cannabinoids and terpenes.
But just because cannabis promotes wellness doesn’t mean it’s the only botanical that does.
There are a host of other herbal remedies that are readily available and quite affordable.
However, while it may be easy to find some of the most powerful herbs for health, that does not mean that the question of how to optimize their use is clear.
And that’s not even touching on the fact that you might not know what herbal remedies treat your health issues.
Fortunately, the authors of these books do. Read on for our list of the best books that demystify the most powerful herbs for health.
