The end of the century old tradition of herbal medicine

New  European legislation, coming  into force next April, may make some herbal remedies currently on sale in health food stores become  a thing of the past.  The new legislation says that all herbs produced, manufactured and sold in the EU must be classified as either food or medicine.

 Many herbal remedies along with Ayurvedic, Chinese and Tibetan herbal mixes,  not medically recognized in the EU, will no longer be legally available.
