Herbal medicine is the oldest and still the most widely used system of medicine in the world today. Treatment is centred on the care of each patient as an individual. The medicines given to patients are made exclusively from plants.
Used appropriately, plants are powerful medicines capable of addressing the perceived causes of illness and supporting the maintenance, restoration or management of health.
In the developed world people are living longer, but increasingly we are also living with long-term health problems. We face healthcare challenges related to our daily lives such as stress, dietary choices, and sedentary lifestyles. Herbal medicine can bring us back to health in a gentle and ordered way that provides long term relief from both physical and mental disorders. Not all of our health problems are chronic; herbal medicine can also help with short-lived and self-limiting illnesses and infections.
As experts in herbal medicine, medical herbalists combine the wisdom and traditions of the past with scientific methods of understanding the human body and disease. We practice herbal medicine which is informed by evidence gathered over thousands of years of clinical observation and increasingly confirmed by modern research.
