What is Herbal Medicine?

Herbal Medicine focuses on using plant-based materials to treat specific symptoms or diseases. It is based on the traditional knowledge of herbs drawn from different cultures that have been used in remedies for centuries and that are becoming increasingly accepted by mainstream healthcare practitioners as improvements in analysis and quality control and advances in clinical research show the value of herbal medicine in treating and preventing disease.

Herbal remedies are prescribed and formulated specifically for each individual and may form part of a more comprehensive treatment plan, that takes diet and lifestyle factors into consideration.
