“The potent healing qualities of herbs have been used in different therapeutic philosophies throughout history. We find plants used within the Indian ayurvedic system, in Chinese medicine and alongside acupuncture and other techniques.
We see them being used as a source of drugs in the highly scientific and technological approach of modern pharmacy and allopathic medicine.
Until about 50 years ago, nearly all the entries in pharmacopoeias describing the manufacture of drugs indicated a herbal origin.
Some examples of this are Aspirin from a number of plants like Meadowsweet and Black Willow. The amphetamines, which are based on the alkaloid ephedrine, supply stimulants and anti-asthmatic drugs and play an important role in medicine.”
