Why does herbalism even matter?

Pause for a moment to consider the ailments, diseases and medical conditions addressed by modern medicine. Picture the stark difference in our lives compared with those of our ancestors, and think of how long humanity would survive without these medicines.

Herbalism matters because one day many of the compounds we use in medicines might not be available, and “going back to fundamentals” might well be the only way we manage to weather the storm.

If the knowledge that formed the basis of modern medicine were to be lost to us now, what guarantee do we have that any other treatment options would present themselves in a timely manner? Retaining the intelligence is paramount, if for no other reason than we might one day need it again.
