Herbal Medicine

Herbs and spicesHerbal medicine or using plant based substances to resolve health problems is as old as mankind. We can now use the wisdom of the past in combination with the knowledge and research of modern times to produce effective, safe remedies, that work with the bodies own natural healing abilities.

It can be used to treat a wide variety of both acute and chronic conditions with the emphasis on treating the person as a whole, and work on the root cause of the problem rather than just giving symptomatic relief.

The medication can be in a number of forms, the most common being liquid tonics and cap
sules, but also may be teas, syrups or topical creams and oils. All the medication is made in our Herbalist own pharmacy and blended for the individual where required.

One of the leading uses of herbal medicine today is to treat the symptoms of the menopause such as hot flushes and anxiety.
