1. Reduced Risk of Side Effects
If you’ve ever watched a commercial or read the warning label for pharmaceutical drugs, you know the list of side effects can be ridiculously long! Most herbal medicines typically have fewer side effects than conventional medications.
2. Lower Cost
Herbs cost a significant amount less than many prescription medications (especially if you aren’t covered by insurance). Prescription drug costs have recently been on the rise, making herbal medicines a more inexpensive option.
3. Many Ways to Use Them
When it comes to actually using herbs as medicine, they are very versatile. Depending on the kind of herb, you have the option of tinctures, drinking them in teas, or taking them in capsule or tablet form.
4. Several Uses at Once
In comparison to conventional drugs, which generally are designed to treat one specific health problem, herbal medicines can tend to several areas of the body at the same time. While you are using herbs to treat one condition, you will also be reaping the benefits of the herb elsewhere in your system!
