Herbal remedies are robust and effective and will often correct a problem quickly, and in chronic cases, you may need to take the remedies over a period of weeks or months making such adjustment to diet and life-style as are necessary.
These herbal medicines are most commonly presented in liquid form as tinctures, fluid extracts or syrups, and may, on occasion, be given dry to be taken as infusions or decoctions, or in powdered from as tablets or capsules. They also can be given in the form of local applications, ointments, lotions and poultices as required.Herbal Medicines can, of course, be taken simultaneously with other conventional medicines or with treatment from other doctors.
