Herbal Medicine is the Original medicine

Humans and animals have been using medicinal plants for all time, to heal and give the body the essential substances it needs to heal itself in illness and to maintain health.

Much of the world continues to rely on traditional plant medicine for its health care. Western Medical Herbalists are trained in a modern orthodox medical way. We have knowledge about the plants we use because of traditional records but we also benefit from modern science, which now confirms much of what our ancestors have taught us.

Herbal Medicine isn’t about labelling ‘this’ herb for ‘this’ ailment, it’s about herbs for people.
