Herbal medicine uses extracts of whole parts of plants to help support & maintain health.

This system of medicine has been used for centuries, with many modern drugs originating from plants.
For example the heart drug digoxin from foxglove & aspirin from meadowsweet, to name but a few.

Unlike orthodox drugs that tend to have a single active constituent,
plant medicines contain many constituents that may have various therapeutic actions on the body. Our bodies have a natural affinity to the ingredients contained in plants.

In recent years, herbal medicine has become increasingly popular as a safe therapy that can help with the symptoms of many health problems.

People consult herbalists for a wide range of conditions. Advice can be offered for conditions that affect the digestive, respiratory, circulatory, nervous, musculoskeletal, reproductive, urinary & immune systems.

Herbalists believe that the best results in treatment with herbal medicine are achieved by individualised preparations, unique for each patient.

Western herbal medicine predominantly uses herbs from Britain, Europe & North America. Medicines are usually prescribed as a tincture (an alcohol based extract of the plant), but dried herbs, syrups, tablets, capsules or topical creams may also be used.
