“A retrospection of the healing power of plant and a return to natural remedies is an absolute need of our time. Herbal medicine is based upon the premise that plants contain natural substances that can promote health and alleviate illness. Modern drugs or conventional medicines are often viewed as impersonal, emphasizing crisis intervention. They are not only expensive but many of them bring side effects which are sometimes more dangerous than the disease themselves.”
