Medical Herbalism is a sophisticated system of natural medicine using plant extracts and herbs to help treat physical and mental disorders. It is the oldest system of medicine in the world. Some of the very plants used today were dispensed by the father of medicine, Hippocrates. Many common drugs today are made from herbal extracts. Unlike conventional medicine, herbalists use the whole herb or plant rather than isolating and breaking down chemical compounds and then synthesising them. This is because the plant, being a part of Nature, is said to represent perfect balance; healing requires the natural combination of elements in the plant or herb, not just a single chemical within it.
Herbal Medicine will create deep and lasting health improvements in a safe, gentle but effective way; working with your body’s own innate healing capacities. It is safe for everyone from the very young to the elderly.Improvements in both chronic and acute conditions such as joint problems, skin disorders such as psoriasis, acne and eczema, allergies, infections, high blood pressure, circulatory problems including varicose veins and ulcers, gynaecological complaints, stress, insomnia, migraine and IBS are just a few examples.
