Herbal Medicine

Herbal medicine, also called botanical medicine or phytomedicine, refers to using a plant’s seeds, berries, roots, leaves, bark, or flowers for medicinal purposes. It is the world’s oldest system of medicine.
Herbal medicines can be given in the form of tinctures (alcoholic extracts), dried herbs, capsules, tablets, and creams or lotions.
Herbalists are aware of the importance of medicines being sourced from reputable manufacturers, who maintain consistent quality standards.
During the first consultation your Medical Herbalist takes a detailed medical history, covering not only your current complaint and medications, allergies and family history but also your diet and lifestyle.
The Medical Herbalist will then make a diagnosis based on the findings and where necessary they may make referrals. If appropriate, a programme of herbal treatment is then discussed and agreed with the patient, including an indication of how long the treatment period may be. An individually designed herbal prescription is then formulated and dispensed with appropriate instructions.
The National Institute of Medical Herbalists (NIMH) is the UK’s leading professional body and voluntary regulator of herbal practitioners. It was established in 1864.
The NIMH provides more detailed information about herbal medicine and its applications.
