Herbs and Natural Medicine in Germany
If one goes to a pharmacy in Germany with whatever symptoms, the pharmacist will either say, 'Please see a doctor' or suggest some treatment to alleviate said symptoms, and more often than not a herb based medication will be high on the list of recommendations.
For centuries Germany’s folk medicine used herbs and plants to make viable and effective medical treatments, and for the majority of today’s German population, in combination with its conventional equivalent, natural medicine is more relevant today than ever before
