IS HERBAL MEDICINE NATURAL

There is a concept that herbal medicine is natural ? Is it true and is this the final answer to health and disease
This thinking is taking hold of the population. Is herbal medicine natural. It is true that it is found in nature, However these are from herbs and there are some major concerns

1. The herbals were not made by nature for human consumption. Therefore there could be chemical in the herbs which are toxic to humans

2. The herbs have to be grown in the soil. The so called organic has different gradations of purity
a use of herbicides and other chemical
b The soil structure e.g. chemicals in the soil
3. preparation and storage
4. the microbiome of the individual
5. genetic structure of the individual
6. interaction with other foods and medication

Therefore herbs are natural is true in one perspective, but just because it is herbal does not mean it will do good for you or you may even do harm

On the other hand the word synthetic has been much maligned

There are essentially two types of synthetic medication

1. Pure products of what your body already produces e.g. levothyroxine, hydrocortisone. These are synthetically prepared but ” natural medication because it exist in your own body. In the contrary
there is what is called natural ” Armour thyroid ” a extract from pig thyroid which does not exist in a natural state except in the pig’s thyroid.
1. Others are synthetic chemical to attack the human biochemistry or the gut microbiome which are synthetic which are classified based on what it is supposed to do eg for hypertension diabetes etc

Both these, herbal and synthetic affect the biochemistry of the human body. therefore by its very nature interferes with your body’ biochemistry and or the immune system technically should be classified as synthetic

There when one chooses a herbal preparation one a modern medication, we must look at closely why you are using it, and what are the known adverse effects. This is the basis of integrated medicine when a physician with expert knowledge of both, is ideal to advise you.
