Natural medicine is a 2,500-year-old practice that relies solely on natural remedies to treat illnesses and chronic problems. Natural practitioners derive all their medications from natural sources, including plant roots, bark, and leaves.
Natural medicine offers several benefits over modern medicine. Because these medicines are derived from natural sources, the body easily absorbs them. Additionally, natural medicines treat a variety of ailments and are less likely than pharmaceutical drugs to cause serious side effects.
Natural medicines alleviate a variety of health problems, including chronic pain, inflammation, joint stiffness, and limited mobility. Natural medicine also helps treat mental health issues, including stress and depression. They’re also prescribable for chronic conditions like arthritis or infertility.
Although natural medicines are safer than most pharmaceutical medicines, some side effects may occur. If a patient experiences any side effects, they should let one of our experienced providers know immediately.
Natural medicines aren’t appropriate for everyone, either (e.g. patients who are pregnant or breastfeeding). Patients should report all pre-existing conditions before beginning a natural regimen.
In some cases, natural medicines may interact with other medications a patient is taking. Patients should tell our staff about all the medications they are currently taking before beginning any natural regimen.
