Herbal Medicine

Herbal Medicine is the use of plant remedies in the treatment of disease. It is the oldest form of medicine known. Our ancestors, by trial and error, found the most effective local plants to heal their illnesses. Now, with the advancement of science enabling us to identify the chemical constituents within these plants, we can better understand their healing powers. Herbalism, in this country, is now classed as an 'alternative' or 'complementary' discipline but it is still the most widely practised form of medicine worldwide with over 80% of the world's population relying on herbs for health.

Medical Herbalists take an holistic approach to illness. The underlying cause of the problem is sought and, once identified, it is this which is helped, rather than the symptoms alone. Herbalists use their remedies to help the body to mobilise its own healing powers.


How it may help
People have always relied on plants for food to nourish and sustain the body. Herbal medicine can be seen in the same way.
