Use of Herbal Medicines: A Growing Trend

Lalit Jain


Abstract: In today's world, using herbal remedies is becoming more popular. Herbal remedies are getting more and more well - liked as people become more health - conscious and look for alternative treatments. Herbal remedies have been used for millennia to treat a wide range of illnesses since they are made from natural sources like plants. Due to the apparent safety and efficacy of herbal medications, interest in them has increased recently. Many people feel that herbal medicines are less harmful to the body and have less negative effects than conventional pharmaceuticals. Herbal remedies are frequently more accessible and inexpensive than prescription drugs as well. The effectiveness and safety of herbal treatments are questioned, though. Herbal medicines, unlike prescription drugs, are not subject to FDA regulation and lack dose and quality standards. Also, there is a chance that herbal medicines and prescription medications will interact, which could have negative effects. Notwithstanding these reservations, the use of herbal medications is on the rise, and healthcare providers need to be aware of this development. Patients may fail to reveal their use of herbal remedies, which might result in adverse drug reactions and other problems. In order to create safe and successful treatment programmes, healthcare providers need both educate themselves and their patients about the advantages and hazards of herbal remedies.
