                                      Herbs

An herb is a leaf, flower, stem, seed, root, fruit, or bark that is used for medicinal purposes, food flavoring, or for fragrant properties.  However, herbs often rely on tradition and testimonials, not on extensive scientific testing.  

More than one third of Americans use herbs for health purposes.  Nurses need accurate information about the uses, effects, risk/benefits, safety and efficacy of these herbal remedies for patient teaching and providing holistic health care.

Not all individuals tell their healthcare provider that they are using herbal remedies.

This website provides quick and practical information about these most popular medicinal herbs.
