In brief: "Reputable cure"?
The answer depends on what condition & botanical you're asking about.
There are thousands of plants which have been used to make medicines, for many conditions. Even some drugs used in conventional medicine -- such as digitalis and Atropine -- had their origins in plant (botanical) medicine. Clinical research in botanical medicine is progressing, but has far to go. www.herbalgram.org for more.
