Herbal Knowledge (Part 1 of 3): Natural Herbs and Modern Medicines – Effectiveness



Many lives have been transformed tremendously by natural herbal remedies since antiquity. When modern medicine is causing more “cost” than effect, the way to a healthier body naturally is by believing in the tried, true, and tested remedies of natural herbs. But hold your horses – everything that exists has its side-effects and its pros and cons as each person’s body differs from the other and reacts differently towards any kinds of medications. Not all herbs are good and not all pharmaceutical drugs are bad, and vice versa. Now let’s delve into comparisons of both types of remedies with regards to its Effectiveness, Side Effects, and Method of Healing:

1) Effectiveness
