Herbal medicines act to influence bodily activity and enhance or inhibit organ function, and are prescribed with the aim of correcting imbalances and resolving patterns of dysfunction. Traditional Western herbal medicine has been significantly influenced and validated by scientific technology and medical research. These active compounds can function effectively in the form of teas, tablets, essential oils, ointments or extracts. Herbal medicine is useful in minor acute conditions such as colds and insomnia. Chronic conditions such as acne, asthma, chronic fatigue, eczema, psoriasis, migraine, irritable bowel syndrome and inflammatory bowel diseases, infertility, rheumatoid arthritis, female reproductive problems such as endometriosis, menopausal symptoms, premenstrual syndrome and polycystic ovarian syndrome respond well to herbal medicine treatment.
