Adaptogenic, Alterative or Tonic?

Dr. Robyn Klein writes that, three herbal properties: adaptogenic, alterative and tonic – have no equivalent in modern medicine, most likely because the underlying strategies of conventional medicine are different from those in herbal medicine.

While modern medicine focuses on inhibition and suppression, herbal medicine emphasizes the body’s own natural processes.

Tonic herbs are used to strengthen (tone) the body. Adaptogenic herbs support the body’s capacity to adapt to stress. And alterative herbs promote the body’s normal secretory and eliminative processes
