At the Healthcare Medicine Institute, we promote the growing of certified organic medicinal herbs, sustainable farming practices, preservation of seed stocks, assurance of purity and potency of medicinal herbs, and protection of endangered flora and fauna. A licensed acupuncturist usually receives herbal medicines in dried, powdered, or granular form. Herbs and herb formulas may be packaged as pills and capsules. Below is a look at herbs in the environment where they grow.
