The use of herbal medicine in the United States has risen. We explored and cataloged knowledge of herbal medicine in New England. Our methods included conducting interviews and a survey to understand baseline practices, perceptions, and awareness of herbal medicine. To provide additional weight, we reviewed studies to learn efficacy from a scientific perspective. We found interest in improved cooperation between herbal medicine and allopathic care, insurance companies, and quality control, as well as in a comprehensive source for information with verified studies.
