Herbs have been used medicinally for centuries. Practitioners use tinctures to address health problems. The introduction of herbs into the body supports the body's own natural healing process. They are much more gentle than pharmaceuticals so side effects are almost nonexistent. It is best to work with a qualified, experienced practitioner rather than self-treating. A full health history review should be included in the initial consultation. There are two schools, western herbs or Asian herbs. They are quite different. Be sure you know which system you are looking for or utilizing.
Asian herbalists can also provide moxabustion for turning breech babies.

In the sheltered simplicity of the first days after a baby is born, one sees again the magical closed circle, the miraculous sense of two people existing only for each other, the tranquil sky reflected on the face of her nursing child."
- Gift from the Sea by Anne Morrow Lindbergh
