Herbal Medicine


Modern herbal medicine combines ancient traditional knowledge with the latest scientific findings. Qualified practitioners do a three-year medical training and must follow strict codes of ethics and safety. Herbalists use the same diagnostic skills as doctors but take a more holistic approach. This means they are more concerned in identifying and treating the underlying causes of any disease rather than to treat the symptoms alone.

Herbal prescriptions are designed specifically for each individual patient. A treatment may be a liquid (tincture) based on extracts of one or more plants, a plant juice, a cream made from oils and plant extracts, or a mixture of dried herbs to drink as a tea.

Herbal medicine is suitable for all ages, from babies through to the elderly.
