Mankind has always placed a premium on health and well-being. For centuries, physicians have been studying about how diseases enter the body, and which medicines and methods of treatment are best suited for curing such ailments. Significant advances in modern science and technology have led to 21st century human beings having longer life spans and overall better health than ever, but an ancient form of healing has slowly been taking on a surprising prominence. 

Thanks to current healthcare trends veering towards the natural and organic route, herbal medicines are enjoying a new surge of popularity these days. But how long have herbal medicines been around exactly? How did the practice of prescribing and consuming herbs as medicinal treatments evolve over the centuries? What sorts of illnesses can traditional herbal remedies cure? Is there really a place for ancient herbal remedies in the modern world? How do they compare to modern forms of medical treatment? And are they truly free from harmful side effects? 

This E-book aims to answer the said questions, and to provide a brief but comprehensive insight into the world of herbal medicine. Apart from a broad summary of the history behind herbal treatments, there is also a substantial list of twenty five of the most popular medicinal herbs for anyone who is or has ever been curious about trying herbal remedies for themselves. 

Ever wondered about which herb is best for stomachaches or dysmenorrheal? Thought of using an herbal remedy to whiten teeth or to clear up acne? How about asking which herbal concoctions should be avoided in cases where other medications are involved? Readers who have ever wondered about the aforementioned questions need not look further. For each herb is discussed in a concise but sufficiently detailed manner, complete with its characteristics, methods of preparation, and side effects (if any).
