The “Ask the Herbalist” section of the Dherbs.com website provides our customers with the opportunity to ask their health related questions to a community of herbalists who will respond to their specific questions directly. The herbalists provide our costumers with a unique and alternative method of helping their bodies heal without the use of synthetic drugs and/or what most people consider “western medicine.” It has been proven that phytochemicals have beneficial effects on long-term health when consumed by humans, and can be used effectively to treat human diseases.
In fact Ethnobotany, which is the study of traditional human uses of plants is recognized as an effective way to discover future medicines. The use of plants as medicines predates written human history, and the use of herbs to treat disease is almost universal among non-industrial societies, and often times more affordable than purchasing pharmaceuticals. The “Ask the Herbalist” section of Dherbs.com will allow our customers the opportunity to discover new, exciting, and innovative ways to utilize nature to help them heal their bodies.
