Utilising the therapeutic benefits of medicinal plants
Herbal tonics are the oldest and still the most widely used system of medicine in the world. Herbal medicine has it’s origins in ancient cultures including Egyptians, American Indians and Chinese. It involves the medicinal use of plants to treat disease and enhance general wellbeing.
Herbal tonics are 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 effects.
I have an extensive herbal dispensary on-site at Equilibrium Natural Health. I also stock high quality, “Practitioner Only” herbal and nutritional supplements that have been clinically and scientifically researched. They contain therapeutic levels of high quality raw ingredients, combined to achieve efficient absorbance through the gut for optimal therapeutic effect.
