Herbs vs. Pharmaceutical Drugs

Posted by Fernanda Silva on

Have you ever wondered why herbs are better than pharmaceuticals? It's a fair question! After all, both plants and manufactured drugs come from nature. So why would one be better than the other? Herbs have many advantages over pharmaceuticals, including being natural, readily available and safe. 

Herbs are natural. Herbal versus Synthetic. 

Herbs are natural substances that have been used for thousands of years. They are generally not processed in the same way as drugs and may be less likely to cause side effects. Herbs are plants or parts of plants, such as flowers, leaves, roots or berries. Like most medicines, they are usually taken from the wild rather than grown on a farm or plantation.

Herbs aren't mass-produced in chemical factories like pharmaceuticals either—they're usually harvested from fields or forests by people who know how they grow and pick them at just the right time so they don't become contaminated with other natural ingredients around where they grow (such as leaves).

Some herbs can also be toxic if taken in large quantities. Still, there aren't many poisonous herbs to worry about when it comes down to it because most of them come from a naturally safe environment that hasn't been altered by man-made chemicals yet has plenty left over after people harvest what they want!

They are more readily available than medications.

When you buy herbs, they are almost always available at affordable prices. You can get them in various forms: fresh leaves and flowers, dry leaves and flowers, or even pressed into capsules. They are available in many different scents to suit your mood or taste.

In contrast, pharmaceuticals are extremely expensive because pharmaceutical companies have patented them. As well as being expensive, these drugs can only be bought from a doctor or pharmacy, which means that many people who want to use them cannot afford them because they don't have insurance coverage for prescription medication costs.

Are Herbs safer than drugs?

Herbs are natural in the sense that they come from plants. They are not synthetic, meaning they're not made in a lab.

On the other hand, drugs go through a process called synthesis, where chemicals are mixed to make something new. This can involve scientists synthesizing plants into their chemical components and recombining them at will. Drugs are man-made because humans have designed them to have certain effects on our bodies or brains.

Herbs heal. Drugs treat.

Herbs are more effective because they treat the root cause of illness, not just its symptoms. Think about what happens when you have a cold. You get sick and feel terrible, losing your voice or can't breathe through your nose. That's the effect of a virus on your body—a virus that needs to be fought before you can get better again. Pharmaceuticals treat these symptoms by killing off all of your cells in order to kill off whatever it is that's making you sick; herbs heal the underlying cause of illness by helping the body heal itself from within without destroying cells unnecessarily.

Herbs also have fewer side effects than pharmaceuticals because they work with natural systems (like those described above) instead of against them like drugs do, thus eliminating some negative effects while still providing relief.

Herbs are better than drugs for general health, as well as for treating illness.

Herbs are better than drugs because they're natural. Drugs, on the other hand, are man-made chemical compounds synthesized in a lab to treat or cure an illness. While these chemicals may be effective, they can also have side effects and long-term consequences that aren't always desirable. Herbal remedies contain centuries-old plant-based ingredients to prevent and treat various ailments such as colds, headaches and cancer."

Herbs are better than drugs because they're natural, readily available, safer and more effective. They heal rather than merely treat symptoms. The fact that pharmaceutical companies are spending so much to convince you otherwise shows how important it is for us all to understand this!
