Depending on the actions of a herb, it may have a higher affinity for one or more organ systems.

Many adaptogens, for example, provide their actions through mechanisms involving the lymph system. This is why many of the herbs in the endocrine section are considered to be adaptogens.

Other mechanisms, like demulcents, provide especially useful effects on the digestive and respiratory tracts.
