An alternative way of healing

Can herbs help people with cancer and other serious illnesses? Yes, according to Bonifacia Lee, a herbalist behind the famous brand Vita Herb. The optimal goal of herbal medicine is complete reversal of the condition. If the disease is chronic, then herbal medicines can slow the progression of the disease. In less advanced cases, herbs can stop the disease from worsening. When cure is too late, herbs can help alleviate distress associated with the condition.
