Herbs have been used in wellbeing products and preparations since long before civilisations. As our knowledge has increased, humans have a better understanding of which herbs work in which circumstances. However, herbalism in general is massively under-studied.
There is a whole spectrum of thought on herbalism. At one end of the spectrum are those who believe strongly that the idea of herbal medicine runs counter to scientific methods, and that the claims made about herbs are somewhat exaggerated. On the other side of the debate are those who believe that conventional medicine is run by massive pharmaceutical companies whose goal is to make money regardless of the side effects of their medicines. These debates tend to run on, and are often based on feelings and political inclinations rather than evidence-based thinking.
At Healthy Supplies, we try to take the politics out of the debate as much as possible, and present things in a matter-of-fact manner. We take care to research the facts, and only sell products that have significant merit based on creditable evidence. We recommend products that are particularly effective or noteworthy. While this is a huge grey area, we try to add clarity wherever possible. Rather than just repeating manufacturers' claims, we advise as truthfully as possible.
We welcome feedback so if you have anything to say or ask, do contact us, and we will listen.
