Western Herbal Medicine

Western herbal medicine is one of the oldest forms of medicine which involves using plants and plant material to create medicines to help prevent or treat various illnesses. These materials may use some or all parts of a plant, such as flowers, roots, fruits, leaves, and bark.

Plants and plant materials all contain natural chemicals and compounds which influence, enhance or inhibit biological functions and systems in our body. These compounds help to restore balance in our physiology and correct dis-ease.  Scientific research into the efficacy and validity of natural remedies has increased in recent times.  For example, the anti inflammatory properties of Turmeric or the relaxing effect of magnesium is well documented thanks to modern technology and research.
