Also known as herbal medicine or herbalism, botanical medicine involves the use of plants to treat disease and promote balance/health.
Most pharmaceuticals today are derived from the active ingredients in plant remedies. For example, aspirin came from willow bark, digoxin from foxglove, steroids from the wild yam and anti-cancer drugs from Madagascan periwinkle.
