Medicine began with herbs. Our relationship with plants is crucial and profound. We co-evolved with plants and it is time to remember this ancient form of medicine and bring it into the for-front of modern medicine. Plant medicines offer gentle, well tolerated and sustainable options for supporting health and well being.
The sophisticated chemical nature of medicinal plants is yet to be fully understood by science but as time passes more studies are proving what ‘folklore’ has always known. Herbal medicine has stood the test of time, it is used worldwide and I believe it is vital for a more sustainable future in health care.
Herbal medicine can be used to treat many complaints commonly seen by GPs, although our therapist Alice Bettany always takes special care to refer patients to a specialist or back to their GP if necessary.
You can find out more about what is entailed in a herbal consultation on Alice's therapist page.
"I feel such a deep gratitude to Mother Nature and our plant allies. I look forward to sharing some of this gratitude with you."
