Tele-medicine or tele-health services is the ability for patients and practitioners to conduct a visit online rather than in-person. This allows patients access to herbs and supplements they need and teaches them self-care practices so they can treat themselves at home. Tele-medicine is a good option for people who have mobility issues or are part of a population that has a high risk of contracting infections.
