Introduction to Herbology
Posted 04/21/15

This section of the website contains information about the historical use of herbs in the practice of clinical herbology, naturopathic medicine, and/or traditional “folk” medicine.

Herbology Defined

“The science and art of using plants for healing is known as herbology. … According to the medical definition, medicine is anything which enters the body and alters its structure of function. Using that definition, all foods and even water and air could be considered medicines. … In the United States, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) classifies herbs as foods when no claims are made that the herb will cure, treat, mitigate, or prevent any disease. When medicinal claims are made for an herb, the herb is regulated as a medicine. Companies selling herbs as food cannot publish any material relating the use of their products to diseases without risking legal prosecution. Hence, herbs are sold as foods, but used as medicines.” (Mark Pedersen, Nutritional Herbology. Warsaw, IN: Wendell W. Whitman Co., 1994, p. 1)

“Let your food be your medicine and let your medicine be your food.” (Hippocrates, The “Father of Medicine”)

Herbs Really Work

• They feed and regulate the body systems naturally.

• They give the body the raw materials it needs to do its own healing work.

• They do not build up in the body or produce harmful side effects like synthetic drugs and supplements.

• They are the key to improving your health.

The Use of Herbs to Treat “Dis-ease”

While most sources of information about herbs (including this website) speak to the historical or traditional use of herbs for particular ailments, this line of thinking is actually misleading. That’s because “plants don’t really treat diseases. In fact, they really don’t correlate very will with treating diseases at all.” [Steven Horne, RH (HG)] Click here to read why that is true.

The information on this web site presents the historic use of herbs and herbal combinations. The statements on this website have not been evaluated by either the American Medical Association (AMA) or the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
