I find myself being sucked into some hodgepodge of discussions of junk sciences on this forum. There are some who contribute from a purely modern medical perspective which has no application to the healing art of Herbology or Herbalism.
There needs to be a standard set for discussions of Herbalism. Definition: Herbalism (herbology) is the consumption (use) of herbs for improved health whereby the body can utilize the nutritional values of herbs in order to heal itself. Hope that made sense.
Some here try to apply herbs to health issues in the same way that pharmacology (modern medicine) tries to treat symptoms of the body. That's a slippery slope and less-than-rewarding way to approach the use of herbs.
If there are any questions, please raise your hand.
