Are there Plants in My Medicine?

You may not be aware that many conventional drugs have been established by plants. Consider a few examples...

  • Aspirin - Willow Bark - pain reliever

  • Paclitaxel - Pacific View - cancer treatment

  • Morphine - Poppy - narcotic pain reliever

  • Valium - Valerian - anti-anxiety and sleep

Now this certainly does not justify taking allopathic medicine unneccesarily nor that it is free from harm. However, it does point to the fact that plants have very therapeutic properties with a wide range of benefits for us. When used appropriately under the guidance of a natural health practitioner, the medicinal properties of many plants provide relief without unwanted side effects.
