About Urbol

urbol? That’s a funny way to spell herbal!

Welcome! Are you interested in restoring your body to balance, health and vitality by the use of traditional, holistic, alternative and/or all-natural herbal medicine?

Then you’re in the right place!

Hi, My name is Kurt and I am a life-long holistic health enthusiast and a board-certified health professional. I like to help people better understand the use and benefits of herbs and how to treat minor chronic health conditions through natural means.

I’m also super into Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine, but we can get into that shortly.

Why Urbol?

Urbol is not a medical journal and the ideas and information shared on this website are personal and anecdotal; not intended to diagnose or treat disease.

If you are working with a serious illness and need medical advice we always recommend you talk to your family practitioner and in the case you want to take a natural approach have them refer you to an alternative naturalistic doctor.

If you have any questions or ideas you’d like to discuss, please get in touch by sending a message at the bottom of every page on the site!

Traditional Chinese Medicine

We have a lot of articles about Chinese medicine herbs on this website but typically we are talking about them from a western perspective. For information on Chinese herbs using the traditional systems (yin/yang, qi, jing, shen and meridians) we will have this kind of information in the future in the mean time you might want to find a different source.

Ayurveda Traditional Indian Medicine

Ayurveda is also a classical form of medicine that I have a lot of respect for. We do not use the Doshas etc. as a lens for the herbs we talk about although we do include Ayurvedic herbs in this publication. For more information on Ayurvedic system of medicine try contacting a local practitioner.

        • That would be an awesome resource the thing is dosage varies depending on the preparation. A lot of these herbs are best taken as a powdered extract or by making tea with the whole herb if you take quality product the side effects should be minimal. That being said there are some side effects from taking herbs (especially when you take them consistently for over a month) and it is far less researched than the benefits of them. I am going to have to think about this one it would be a massive project, I appreciate the feedback!
