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
