I have been working as a medical herbalist since 2011. I am a member of The National Institute of Medical Herbalists.
Herbal medicine is the use of medicinal plants to treat disease with the aim of restoring and maintaining health. Use of herbal medicine over thousands of years is well-documented, and modern research enables us to understand how and why plants can be effective and to use them with knowledge and skill. When used correctly, plant medicines are an extremely safe way to approach health and well-being.
Herbal medicine is appropriate for most conditions for which you would consult your GP. Conditions treated may include digestive problems; hormonal imbalances; stress, anxiety and depression; coughs, colds and low immunity; allergies; skin conditions; joint pains; headaches and migraines; heart and circulatory problems; urinary disorders and blood sugar imbalances.
