For The People!
Herbalism is one of the oldest forms of healing in the world and it is still the most widely used form of healthcare globally. Plants have been used for medicinal purposes long before recorded history. Ancient Chinese and Egyptian papyrus writings describe medicinal uses for plants as early as 3,000 BC. Indigenous cultures (such as African and Native American) used herbs in their healing rituals, while others developed traditional medical systems (such as Ayurveda and Traditional Chinese Medicine) in which herbal therapies were used. Researchers found that people in different parts of the world tended to use the same or similar plants for the same purposes. Herbalism, sometimes referred to as phytotherapy, is as diverse as are the various plants that are used for healing ailments.
