Herbal medicine is a major component in all indigenous peoples' traditional medicine and is a common element in Ayurvedic, homeopathic, naturopathic, traditional oriental and Native American Indian medicine.  It has existed since ancient times and has been used by the Romans, Egyptians, Aborigines, Native American Indians, Africans and Asians as the primary source to treat disease states.

Viruses, bacteria, bacilli, pollens, pollution and food additives are with all of us, all the time. What precipitates them into producing symptoms of illness in one person and not in another?"   — Dorothy Hall
