There's something very special about using plants as medicine - we come to share active compounds that not only alleviate symptoms but restore our health and wellbeing - just as Nature intended.
Herbal Medicine is being increasingly validated by scientific investigation which seeks to understand the biochemistry of the plant. In fact many modern pharmaceuticals have been modelled on, or derived from chemicals found in plants. An example is the heart medication digoxin derived from foxglove (Digitalis purpurea).
Herbal extracts support and nurture the body's own healing capacity. It's a safe and effective way to manage or treat health issues with the guidance of a qualified professional - a service we offer to our clients and the wider community.
Adults and young children can safely benefit from the use of herbs. If you're looking to integrate Plant Medicine into your health-plan come in and chat to our experienced Naturopath.
