Based on scientific research and conventional medical knowledge, herbal medicine has solid foundations and widely-accepted benefits dating back millennia. From codeine to metformin for treating diabetes, many orthodox medicines prescribed by GPs derive from plants.
Plant research by pharmaceutical firms and clinical trials continue apace. Unlike drugs companies though, herbal medicine believes the benefit comes from the delicate chemical balance and natural harmony of the whole plant rather than a single substance.
Plant medicines are particularly effective in helping mild-to-moderate acute and chronic illnesses, allergies and issues resulting from stress, as well as a variety of imbalances within the body.
