Can medicine be organic?

    I guess that depends on what type of medicine it is.  In the case of asprin, it is derrived from a compound in willow bark.  If you purified this compound from the bark, then it could and would be organic.  However, most drugs are synthesized in a lab because synthesis schemes have been worked out that give more product than extraction from natural sources.

    Most holistic and eastern medicine practices can use organic products.  For example, ginger has been used to cure cure a whole range of ailments like coughs, colds, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, inflammations of the joints, flatulence, motion sickness, colic, cholera, asthma, headaches, and even anorexia. Raw ginger is also a thermogenic, and is also an anti-flatulent, digestive, appetizer, and a laxative.  There are a lot of herbal remedies that are organic medicines.

    There are a lot of herbs and plants that can be used for medicinal purposes and are grown organically.  A lot of times they are not listed as a drug because of FDA labeling requirements, so they are careful not to advertise healing properties though they often do heal.
