The therapeutic use of herbs has long been highly regarded in many cultures and medical systems. Traditional Ayurveda and Chinese medicine developed herbal treatments early on, and indigenous African, Indian and European culture have employed the use of herbal treatments for many years.
Clinical naturopaths and herbalists combine knowledge of ancient medical systems with the most up-to-date research in herbal medicine to treat their patients as effectively as possible. Due to improvements in analysis and quality control – alongside advances in clinical research – the medical credibility of using herbal therapies in disease treatment and prevention is finally being realised.
Herbal medicine is used to treat many diseases, including arthritis, premenstrual syndrome or menopausal symptoms, cardiovascular diseases, asthma, digestive problems, respiratory diseases, eczema, chronic fatigue syndrome, migraines and many others.
Healing herbs are now available in various forms, such as extracts, tinctures (fresh and dried plants), teas, capsules, tablets, lozenges, herbal powders, creams and balms.
