Functional Medicine Explained

Remedies

Remedies: Herbal medicinal products are medicinal products where the active ingredient consists exclusively of herbal substances or herbal preparations. Natural remedies are medicinal products where the active ingredient comes from a natural origin and consists of an animal part, a bacterial culture, a mineral or a salt. El Paso, TX. Chiropractor Dr. Alex Jimenez shows natural medicines and remedies for various ailments without having to resort to prescription medications. The term herbal substance denotes whole or parts of plants, algae, fungi and lichens. The material is usually dried but sometimes fresh, and is defined by specifying the species’ full scientific name and or the plant part used. Herbal preparations, such as powders, extracts, distillates and pressed juices, are products obtained by processing herbal substances. Living things have an innate ability to heal themselves.  The vital force promotes self-cleansing, self-repair, and self-healing.  This process can be achieved by focusing on the immune, hormonal, nervous, and detoxification/elimination systems of the body.  Once these systems are in balance, restored health is a possibility. For Answers to any questions you may have please call Dr. Jimenez at 915-850-0900
