There’s no denying that modern medicine can be frightening. Industrial drug production often seems more focused on generating a profit for researchers than healing the ailments of the sufferers, who have little choice but to buy their products. For many, this is unsettling.
These fears have caused many people to turn away from commercially produced medications, and instead turn towards all-natural, medicinal herbs from the forests around them. One of the most highly sought-out is ginseng, a relatively rare root that is perhaps the most famous healing botanical on the planet. Though people in Western cultures tend to only consume ginseng in trace amounts that prevent it from giving them many health benefits, herb lovers in the far east value ginseng above all other plants for its healing, energizing and life-prolonging properties.
