Did you know that herbal medicine is the oldest form of medicinal healing known to man? Still in use by over 80% of the global population, it crosses all cultures and is world renowned for its nurturing, natural properties.
Often referred to as complementary or alternative medicine, herbal remedies stimulate your body’s own healing process. Herbs work by strengthening your body, gradually restoring health, balance and wellbeing.
Herbal medicines are made from organically-grown or wild-crafted plants. Typically, a plant’s seeds, berries, roots, leaves, bark or flowers form the basis of herbal medicine prescriptions.
Prepared in either water or alcohol. Prescriptions range from tinctures, herbal teas and steam-distilled aromatic waters, to creams, ointments, capsules and tablets.
Patricia, a leading London medical herbalist, is trained in both modern and plant medicine. However, herbal medicine takes the holistic approach by focusing on the person, not just the condition.
