"Plants have been used as medicine for millennia and that usage continues today among indigenous and other groups. Because of the availability of so many different kinds of herbal preparations, many people self-medicate with a variety of plant medicines.  In addition, many medicinal plants can be found locally (wherever you are) and utilized. But what chemicals are in these plant medicines and do they really work?  If they do work, how do you cultivate and prepare those plants?"
