Is herbal medicine similar to homeopathy?

There is only one similarity between the two – both herbal medicine and homeopathy use herbs in their remedies. However, there is a lot difference in the philosophy and general approach to the treatment. While homeopathy uses much diluted medicines, herbalism uses the whole herb. There is hardly any pharmacologically active ingredient in a homeopathic plant medicine.

On the other hand, herbal remedies contain active plant constituents that are very effective on the body. The range of all the herbs in the herbal remedy work collectively to help the body return to normal function.
