Native Americans (including Hawaiian and Alaskan tribes) use of herbs as their medicine goes back thousands of years. They used herbs for their physical body, their spirit and to bring balance back to their lives. The herbs were also included in rituals, ceremonies, and symbolism as part of the healing process. Some say the oral traditions indicate that they learned about the healing powers of herbs and other plants by watching sick animals. They gathered the herbs from their region grinding and mixing herb, roots, and other natural plants to create their healing formulations for the medical issue.
