Herbal remedies are not just for alleviating medical
conditions; they are also for health benefits too. Many people
are seeing the light and are taking herbal remedies to improve

even some high street stores and supermarkets have their own
range of remedies from ginseng to lavender oil.

The reason why a lot of testing still needs to be carried
out on some forms of herbal remedies is because it is unsure if
all remedies work, and of the ones that do, we do not know if
it is due to the placebo effect or is a true cure.
