Herbal Medicine

Herbal Medicine involves the use of medicinal plants which help to bring about healing and balance in individuals. It is a natural, safe and effective medicine for all ages and traditional use goes back many thousands of years in all cultures in the world.

Medical Herbalists prescribes herbal medicine holistically and without suppression in that the whole person and their health is taken into consideration together with genetics and lifestyle issues through case taking and diagnostic examination. The body works synergistically not in isolation and internal and external factors can contribute greatly to our health such as stress and pollution.

The herbs used are evidently proven and adhere to regulatory standards. In treatment, herbal medicine comes in different forms such as tinctures, teas, creams, oils, syrups, and tablets.

- Skins problems such as acne, eczema, psoriasis, and hives
- Menstrual issues such as PMT, fibroids and menopause
- Digestive disorders such as IBS
- Pain ranging from migraines, muscular and nerve
- Stress
- Sleep problems such as insomnia
- Immunity issues
- Fatigue problems
