Best Natural Medicine Classes in Los Angeles

Since physical health and healing are perennial concerns, natural medicine is a discipline and field of study that is as old as human culture itself. In the Middle Ages, medicinal knowledge was preserved primarily by Benedictine monasteries, and the Islamic Golden Age polymath Avicenna is widely known for his The Canon of Medicine, a five-book encyclopedia of medicinal practice and theory. 

Some plants that were commonly used in previous millenia, and even up to this day, include the bark of the willow tree, the poppy flower, the deadly nightshade, senna alexandrina, foxglove, angelica, and thyme. Most of these medicinal plants require extensive preparation to be used therapeutically; procedures include decoction, powdering, and extraction from alcohol. 

Today, the use of natural medicine in the United States frequently involves psychoactive substances, many of which are strictly regulated by the FDA. Some of these substances include caffeine, nicotine, analgesics, cannabis, and psilocybin.
