Herbal Therapies

Mother Nature first gifted us plants as the original medicine. While pharmaceuticals will always have their place in medicine, there’s no denying that the evidence of herbal, plant-based remedies dates back over 60,000 years, as far back as civilization itself.

At Rezilir Health, we are proud advocates of the responsible administration of herbal supplements as a natural means of health improvement and restoration. By having a certified Herbalist and Herbal Pharmacy onsite, we strive to offer an affordable selection of herbs and herbal supplements for our patients. Our understanding of the disease processes applicable to the autoimmune, neurological, and inflammatory conditions that we treat are paramount in maximizing treatment safety and efficacy for patients. We avoid triggering compounds in herbs, such as histamine liberators, biogenic amines, sterols, saccharides, and others.

Herbs are considered to be safe and effective when prescribed by a licensed provider. Your Rezilir clinician will take a detailed history and review your case to recommend the herbs and herbal supplements that would best aid you in achieving optimal health. All herbs in our clinic have been lot-tested to ensure that they are free of pesticides, heavy metals, sulfur, and toxins. Each herb and/or herbal supplement is thoroughly examined to verify that it is the correct genus and species, and each comes with its own Certificate of Analysis.

Herbs may be taken orally in pill form, powder, tincture (alcohol extract), glycerite (glycerin extract), infusion (oil), or decoction (tea). Additionally, they can also be administered topically as a salve, balm, ointment, or liniment, taken internally as a suppository or douche, applied in eye drops, ear drops, sinus rinses, and a host of other possibilities. Some herbs are also available as injectable drugs such as arnica and licorice, two that we commonly use at Rezilir.

With so much conversation about prescription drugs often focused on matters of artificial or synthetic invention, many don’t realize that over 50% of drugs on the market are either extracted from plants, created from modified plant chemicals, or designed to mimic plant compounds (such as aspirin, lovastatin, taxol, and penicillin).

In fact, 11% of drugs considered “basic and essential” by the World Health Organization are exclusively derived from flowering plants. A sobering anecdote indeed, for if these plants should become extinct, humans will have no way to produce these medications artificially.

By partaking of an herbal regimen, either as a supplement or as a part of their diet, patients are exposed to a wide array of beneficial chemical compounds. However, “natural” or no, it is of utmost importance that a licensed healthcare professional oversee any form of herbal therapy, as many herb-drug and herb-herb interactions may reduce the efficacy of treatment or have dangerous effects
