Psychospiritual aspects of Herbal Medicine

An important aspect of thousands of classical herbal formulas described in clinical texts over the centuries was for the treatment of possession. These were used for emotional imbalances which were seen as conditions where the individual was behaving in a way that was considered not him or her self. Interestingly, the ancients saw underlying physiological conditions for these emotional diseases that were to some extent treatable with herbal formulas and diet.
