Herbal remedies and the use of herbal medicine is here to stay.

Including the "Third World Countries" more than 75% of the population of Planet Earth rely on herbal remedies for their health and well being. Admittedly many of them are not in the fortunate position of being able to choose which of the many modalities that are available to us they would like to use, their choices are limited to what they can get.

However in the "First World Countries" the users of herbal remedies are certainly not small either - and they do have a choice!

In the US 25% are regular users of herbal remedies, in Germany it is more than 50% and European countries mostly fall somewhere in-between. In Asia  more than 75% rely on herbal remedies.

In the last two decades we have seen escalating growth of M.D.s prescribing herbal remedies like Echinacea, St. John's Wort, Saw Palmetto and more, showing a convergence of traditional and conventional medicine.

In fact, although herbal medicine went into decline from the middle of the 19th century to late in the 20th century it is still true today that at least 20% of all pharmaceutical drugs are still synthesized or derived from plant constituents.
