Despite the environmental stresses we face daily, our less than ideal lifestyle choices, and our genetic challenges, we can reap impressive health results through consistent use of therapeutic herbs, which can strengthen the structures and functions of our bodies. Many Americans are familiar with some North American herbs like Echinacea, used to help prevent colds and flu, St. John’s wort, used for mood support, and the Chinese herb ginseng, taken for energy support.

Clinical experience and scientific studies have shown them to be highly effective in greatly improving many health issues when used on a frequent or regular basis. Following are some examples of how to use a few of these herbs to support your body.
