How can herbal medicine help you?
Herbal medicine dates back to early civilisation and is today practised all over the world. It is a gentle and safe treatment, drawing from thousands of years of accumulated knowledge of the herbs and their uses and updated by modern research, which has confirmed their value in healing.

The natural whole plants used in the preparation of herbal remedies have many active ingredients which interact and work together to achieve the total medicinal effect. The herbalist’s aim is to treat the underlying cause of illness, not just to suppress symptoms, as is the usual purpose of conventional drugs. Many of the herbs work to stimulate the body’s own healing power and to restore balance.

Herbal medicines have an excellent safety record and avoid the unpleasant and often severe effects of orthodox drugs. They should be prescribed by a fully trained practitioner and suited to the individual patient.

The plants used are specially grown in England or imported from many parts of the world and are carefully selected as top quality plants for the preparation of plant medicines of consistent reliability.

What can the herbalist treat?
Skin disorders, stress related conditions, migraine,arthritis and rheumatism, heart conditions, allergies, urinary problems, respiratory disorders, depression,digestive disorders such as irritable bowel syndrome, colitis and indigestion. Gynaecological problems such as PMS and menopause, including menopausal flushes have been teated very successfully using herbal medicine, as well as angina and high blood pressure/hypertension

You do not have to be ill to benefit from herbal treatment. You may just feel a little weak or tired and low. The herbs work to restore the body’s natural harmony and resistance and can help you back to feeling really well.

How does herbal treatment work with the medicines you are already taking from your doctor?
Herbalists welcome consultation with doctors and other health professionals. Any medication and treatment you are already receiving is taken into consideration. You may need to continue your current treatment alongside the herbal remedy. It is imperative that you do not stop your treatment without advice.
