Herbal Actions
Understanding how herbs work means understanding the wide range of actions they can have in the body. It’s important to keep in mind that a single herb can have numerous actions, and they should never be pigeon-holed into only doing one thing. Often their actions are synchronized and work together in a way that will benefit the body as a whole system and on multiple levels.
