White Willow Bark

         White Willow is a tree that naturally contains pain relieving compounds. This bark is used in the mass production of aspirin. The active compounds found within the tree are called salicylates. By active, I mean this is what is responsible for the anesthetic ( pain relieving ) qualities of the plant. It's pretty amazing that the bark of a tree can provide pain relief isn't it?


Phytochemistry is the branch of botany that discusses pharmacological values of compounds found within plants. This is the field you'll want to study in school if you are interested in alternative medicine. This is how aspirin came to be, thanks to the White Willow tree. That's why this field is so important. To me, it's about discovering natural medicines, not producing pharmaceuticals.


I think medicine should not be controlled. It would blow your mind to know how many compounds are out there that we know about. If you think there are a lot of pills, vitamins, and supplements out there, you haven't seen anything yet. There are quite possibly more naturally occurring medicinal and psychoactive compounds out there than there are stars in the sky.


I believe that this information should be no secret. If the majority of the public knew that phytochemist studied medicinal and psychoactive compounds that exist in nature, then they surely would think twice about doubting the herbalists community. Much of this information goes on to produce pharmaceutical grade drugs. There are endless academic resources that can verify this information.


I think many students who study phytochemistry do it for one reason, they are interested in it themselves. I don't believe that students necessarily always want their discoveries to be used in the mass production of pharmaceutical drugs. To me, it's about knowing the true source of these tools. If something already exist in nature that has medicinal properties, who really made it? Capturing something that already exist is not a creation, it's more like stealing in my eyes. Making money off of natural medicine is what's really going on here I believe.


The Best Of Both Worlds


Instead of going too far towards the natural herbalist approach, or too far towards the modern synthetic approach, why not combine the best of both worlds? If a natural herb is more effective on it's own, why not use it? If a certain botanical contains medicinal compounds as well as other potentially harmful ones, then maybe a synthetic approach could benefit us in this case.


As a society, we do a lot of things based on money. A lot of what we do is not necessarily what's best for all of us, rather what's best for our income. So, why control medicine? People need medicine and all of us deserve it. If medicine can be found in nature, no human should be denied.


You don't hear about these breakthroughs on the news, as someone out there has money symbols flashing in their eyes over these compounds that exist in nature. Do you believe every time a phytochemist discovered a potential cure, or a real cure that it's going to be on the evening news? Well, if you do some research you'll see that's never been the case. For example, many people have no idea that aspirin comes from the White Willow species, and you don't see White Willow bark advertised on TV.
