Alteratives, Depuratives and AntidyscraticsThe concept of an alterative was a very prominent part of western medicine up until the early 20th century. Alterative medicines were used to help alter an unhealthy state in the body to a healthier, more normal metabolism. Even though alteratives were dropped from western medicine their use still persists as an important part of herbal medicine. These herbs enhance normal eliminatory functioning, thus allowing the body to function more effectively even on a cellular level. Come join us as we learn about the most important alterative herbs and the differences between alteratives, depuratives, and antidyscratics and how they can be used in the treatment of chronic degenerative diseases such as cancer, arthritis, skin problems and autoimmune conditions.
