At Shawnee Mission Health Holistic Care, we believe herbal and botanical preparations can supplement conventional medicine to help support optimal health.
Herbal and botanical preparations contain ingredients that work together to treat conditions and illnesses. These natural substances are safe when used correctly, and we strive to stay updated and informed about them at Shawnee Mission Holistic Care.
What do herbal and botanical preparations help treat?
Herbal preparations are used to help prevent illnesses, treat minor infections and heal various ailments. We use them regularly for digestive concerns, hormone imbalances and inflammatory conditions.
What advantages do they offer?
When used responsibly and under the guidance of a knowledgeable practitioner, herbal and botanical preparations are a very safe and effective natural treatment option. In fact, herbs generally have a safer profile than prescription medications. And with responsible herbal prescribing, we’re seeing great results from herbal and botanical remedies.
What kind of success can occur through herbal and botanical use?
We have helped numerous patients reclaim their health and adopt a new, healthier lifestyle through the use of herbal and botanical remedies. Herbal and botanical success stories include, but are not limited to, patients who are able to get chronic pain under control without needing to increase their prescription pain medications and helping patients who struggle with sleep and energy.
Are there any precautions that should be taken before use?
While not the only consideration, we like to point out that some herbs don’t combine well with medications, and many herbal products available over the counter are not of sufficient quality. That’s where we come in. Our experienced and accredited naturopathic doctor will work with you to minimize any potential risks and ensure that you are taking a safe approach with all herbal and botanical remedies.
