Though the medicines may take a bit longer than conventional medicines to start taking effect, they usually treat the whole disease at source and have fewer adverse side effects. Healing is natural and the benefits continuous.
Synthetic drugs tend to focus on alleviating disease symptoms and not treating the disease at it's source.
Herbs function by stimulating and activating various endocrine glands to secrete appropriate hormones which then relay the "distress signal(s)" to the relevant organs within your body to either promote or suppress certain specific biological processes in order for the healing process to take place.
Many herbal remedy regimens are accompanied with specific instructions about diet, rest and exercises that strengthen the herbs potency by getting your body ready in such a way that it responds to the herbal medicine in the most appropriate way.

healing process takes place just the way nature intended it to
be. Contraindications are also minimal when the medication is taken as
prescribed and under the supervision of a qualified practitioner of
natural health medicine.
As with all good things, unsupervised, careless consumption or overdose will inevitably lead to unpleasant side effects that may range from the mild to the lethal - toxicity.
