What is herbal medicine?


Herbal Medicine has been used for thousands of years and is still the main form of medicine for millions of people throughout the world. Herbal medicine has a wide range of therapeutic benefits and may be used to treat illnesses encompassing all systems of the body.

Herbal medicine is made exclusively from the whole plant or parts of a plant such as the root, leaf, berries or bark. Different herbs may be combined and administered through the use of teas, capsules, tablets, extracts and tinctures, ointments and balms. The use of essential oils, Bach flowers and other flower essences can also be included.



What to expect in a consultation


The herbalist offers a customised treatment, from the plant preparations, based on the philosophy, principles and practice of herbal medicine as well as medical sciences. Our herbalist is also trained in nutrition with a strong understanding of holistic eating and food for healing.

Medical history, medication, lifestyle and diet are all important for the herbalist to help find the underlying cause. Although herbal medicine may be used to effectively treat acute conditions, its aim is to treat the whole body, not just the symptoms. Along with treating an illness or dis-ease, prevention is also a vital component of treatment. So, if your vitality is low or you have a health issue that you would like addressed, consider herbal medicine as your choice of treatment.
