Herbal Medicine…

Utilising the therapeutic benefits of medicinal plants.

Herbal Medicine

Herbal medicine is the oldest & stil the most widely used system of medicine in the world. Herbal medicine has it’s orginins in ancient cultures including Eqyptians, American Indians and Chinese.  It involves the medicinal use of plants to treat disease and enhance general wellbeing.

Herbal medicine is increasingly being validated by scientific investigation which seeks to understand the active chemistry of the plant.  Many modern pharmaceuticals have been modelled on, or derived from, chemicals found in plants.  An example is the heart medication Digoxin, derived from the plant Foxglove (Digitalis purpurea).

Using plants as medicine provides significant advantages for treating many conditions. The therapeutic activity of a plant is due to its complex chemical nature, with different parts of the plant providing certain therapeutic efffects.
