There is a wide range of herbs available (apart from the well known culinary varieties) which have a highly successful usage in naturopathic practice. Each, because of its specific quality, can supply vital energy in a highly concentrated form to specific organs, so enabling them to regain their normal functions in a far shorter time than would be possible from dietary therapy alone. Little is known of how herbs work. On analysis, they are found to have high concentrations of vitamins and minerals, each herb having of course a different combination of active substances. In addition, highly complex organic molecules of unknown action are consistently found. They undoubtedly contribute to the action of the herb, perhaps in a major fashion.
