Herbal Medicine
Many pharmaceutical drugs contain phytochemicals (chemicals found in plants) e.g: morphine from poppies Papaver somniferum, digoxin from foxglove Digitalis purpurea and colchicine from the autumn crocus Colchicum autumnale. These chemicals, and many others, are extracted from the plants and used in the laboratories of pharmaceutical companies to create drugs and medicines. Herbalists believe that the whole plant, as well as the active ingredient, has a role to play in promoting overall health and wellbeing. There will always be a place for pharmaceutical medicines, but they need to be used judiciously and with caution. Herbalists believe that a more integrated approach to healthcare needs to be taken. Although herbal medicines are natural, they are still powerful medicines and need to be used appropriately and treated with respect. It is important that patients do not self-diagnose or self-medicate, but seek professional advice from a qualified herbalist or GP.

What can be treated by Herbal medicine?

Herbal medicine is suitable for adults and children alike. In general, chronic conditions respond well to individually tailored prescriptions. Herbal medicine may also be appropriate for addressing some of the side effects experienced with prescription drugs. The herbs which are used will be chosen carefully to ensure that there are no adverse reactions with prescription drugs. Please note that patients will never be advised to stop medication without their prescribing doctor’s consent.
