Herbal medicine is simple, safe and effective naturopathic tradition of using plants for medicinal purposes.
Modern herbal medicine is based on a variety of healing traditions going back thousands of years, including ancient Greek medicine, Indian Ayurveda, traditional Chinese medicine and many others. Herbs are currently used by 80 per cent of people worldwide for primary healthcare to address a wide array of concerns, including:
Plants absorb vital nutrients from the soil and then process and store them, providing phytochemicals that are recognised by the body as food and are therefore easily absorbed. As herbal medicines work in a gentle and subtle way, they can take longer to take effect than ‘orthodox’ drugs, but their effects are long-lasting and side effects are rare.
Herbalists use active ingredients of leaves, flowers, bark, berries, roots or seeds of medicinal plants as their therapeutic tools. Formulations usually take form of powders, decoctions, creams, macerated oils and alcohol extracts, and most contain several ingredients, all carefully tailored to individual needs.
Glycerine-based syrups that make herbal preparations more palatable, and hence are more suitable for children, are also available. In addition, herbs can be used alongside conventional medicine under supervision of your practitioner.
