Herbalism is the practice of using herbs and spices to maintain wellness and treat imbalances and disease conditions. Herbalism has a long history throughout the world and specific herbs have been used by different herbal conditions such as ayurveda, chinese traditional medicine (TCM), native american healers, wiccan, shamanic healers, Islamic healers, African healers and Siberian shaman.
