Not sure about herbal medicine? Think about this: which is better, a Vitamin C tablet, or a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice? Hopefully, most people would say the orange juice because it contains a range of vitamins and minerals that aren’t found in the purified Vitamin C tablet. We think about herbal medicine in the same way – plants contain lots of useful things that aren’t always found in purified medicines.
At the herbal medicine clinic, our approach to patients is very simple: if we can help, we do. If we think the condition needs treatment from your GP, we will always say this upfront. We always take into account treatments you are receiving from your GP or specialist and are happy to provide any information they may require to ensure your safety.
Remember, herbal medicine is not the same as homeopathy or Chinese herbal medicine. Our approach is based on Phytotherapy, using as many native plants as we can.
Traditionally, herbal medicine is used to treat long-term (chronic) conditions including:
Short-term illness such as ear ache, coughs and colds also respond to herbal medicine. We can also provide herbal first aid for minor wounds, sprains and bruises.
