I Want To Create My Own Homeopathic In-home Apothicary

My whole life I was raised on the belief that if it comes from the ground, it is better for you. My mom would rather look up the homeopathic remedy for our ailments than take us to a doctor. I don't know why it took me so long to want to learn about homeopathic herbal remedies until now, but it is very exciting. I bought a very good book on the topic called The Green Pharmacy, and the author even talks about foraging for the herbs in the wild, or "wildcrafting" as is called by botanist in that field of work. The idea of wildcrafting makes me think back to the early times in medicine, when doctors still heavily relied on herbs to heal people. I know there are skeptics out there, and I am very used to it, but natural medicine just feels right.
With this new devotion to herbal remedies I have decided, unless I am deathly ill, to use only natural medicine and try herbal remedies. A friend of mine recently told me " If you believe it will work, it will." And to a certain extent, I feel that way about homeopathy.
