How Could Herbal Medicine Help You?
Herbal medicine dates back to early civilisation and today is practised all over the world. Thousands of years of accumulated knowledge about the uses of herbs have been documented, and updated by modern research - This confirms their value in the healing process.

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

Herbal medicines have an excellent safety record, they 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.
