The Power of Plants
Herbal medicine has been around for centuries, helping improve our physical and mental health
What is a Herbalist?
Herbalists treat the person rather than the symptom. They carry out detailed consultations to establish the underlying cause of symptoms and use plants whose traditional uses are often backed up by modern scientific research and clinical trials. Herbalists prescribe herbal remedies which can be used alongside other medication and treatments, although care must be taken to ensure that they do not interfere with any other treatment.
Herbalism may be used to address both acute and chronic conditions, including menopausal health, digestion, joint and bone health and fatigue.s
What do I need to know?

Natural remedies have been made from plants for centuries, but it is really important that all the healthcare providers who are responsible for your care are fully informed about any herbs, supplements or drugs you are taking
