During my 25 years of Practicing as Naturopathic Practitioner, fully trained in the pharmaceutical prescribing of Herbal medicines and formulating individual formulas for each of my clients other than Homoeopathics and implementing a fresh food diet I have not found anything other than liquid herbal formulas that work more efficiently is restoring health

Where Herbal Medicine Originated from!

People have used extracts from plants for thousands of years to treat their ill health and disease.

The Egyptians were using herbal remedies some 3500 years ago, while there is also a great deal of evidence other than ancient communities, Herbal and homoeopathic remedies have also within European and English communities for centuries.

More than eighty percent of the world’s population uses herbal medicines in one form or another from China to Australia and from America and Europe to Africa. Western herbalism evolved from the work of apothecaries and the alchemists going as far back as the Romans.

Herbal folklore slowly evolved over the centuries with lotions and potions being passed down through families. The invention of the printing press in the fifteenth century led to an explosion in herbal medicine as recipes for treatments could be copied and used by anyone who could read.

By the seventeenth century, Nicholas Culpeper had put together a book of herbal remedies, which became very popular. In his book, Culpeper built on the idea of the ‘doctrine of signatures’ which the early chemist Paracelsus had first thought of. He believed that how a plant looked provided clues as to what ailment it would cure.

By 1985, the World Health Organisation was saying that herbal remedies are an important part of healthcare. In continental Europe it has become very common although its use is only gradually increasing in the UK.

The main success of Herbal medicine is evidence based on the effectiveness; it can be used holistically with incorporating more than one remedy to treat, so that you are treating not only the illness but the underlining cause. Different to homoeopathics herbal medicine works on organ and tissue function so therefore it is important that it be prescribed by a qualified Herbal practitioner or Naturopath. Working within the realms of the “Hippocratic oath” as to do NO HARM or further HARM:

Due to the fact that it does not include any chemical substances and purely derived from plant base the body has a natural affinity to anything that is used directly from nature with very little processing or alteration of the genetic coding of the plant, vegetable or fruit.

Herbal medicine has now taken on a very Professional and Safe role with people having studied in the use and treatment protocols of Naturopathic medicine with Professional organizations for registrations of Qualified Therapist such as ATMS and the Natural Therapists Association as well as the manufacturing of it by people such as Mediherb Australia
