The use of herbal medicine in today's world is important to our well-being. Plants enhance our lives in many ways. They provide us with beauty when they flower, their seeds and leaves can provide nourishment and their medicinal properties can restore our health. We have co-existed with the plant kingdom. and many of us have treasured its value. Western medicine is beginning to fulfill the World Health Organization's criteria that traditional medicine practices need to be incorporated into the healthcare system. "Health is defined as more than simply the absence of illness. It is the active state of physical, emotional, mental, spiritual, social and environmental wellbeing." Each individual has the ability to self-heal.

Herbal medicine is a complementary system of medicine, which can co-exist with the pharmaceuticals of the Western medical model. An herb can be used in combination with a drug. An example would be an individual prescribed a drug with a side effect of liver toxicity. Offering the herb, Milk Thistle, can provide protection for the liver. This herb's constituents have been confirmed by extensive research.
