Herbal Medicine is also known as Phytotherapy. It is both an ancient art and a modern science. It is the oldest and most widely practiced form of medicine worldwide.
Herbal medicine - also known as phytotherapy or phytomedicine - involves using plants or part of a plant for healing purposes.
Herbalists use whole plant preparations and have a holistic approach to treating the whole person, rather than just isolated or synthesised constituents which only treat the symptoms.
Herbal medicine can be used as preventative, supportive and even along side conventional medicine, as a treatment to nourish and restore the general health and vitality of the patient.
“80% of the world use herbal medicine
as their primary form of health care.”
