Herbal Medicine

Herbal medicine uses plant-based medicines to treat the whole person, addressing the underlying cause of the complaint and not just the symptoms. It emphasises the individual and the importance of tailoring treatment to suit each person’s needs, thus a unique combination of several herbs are prescribed to support that individual.

A number of people consult us for support with specific health problems, however, others turn to us for help when facing natural biological changes such as the menopause, to help with periods of stress, or to enhance their feelings of wellbeing (for example when feeling run down after prolonged stress).

There is plenty of evidence today that diet, exercise and other lifestyle changes can have significant beneficial effects on health and wellbeing. As properly trained herbalists, we can advise in detail about useful changes to your diet, recommend daily physical activities and discuss with you other lifestyle choices.
