Herbal medicine, or phytotherapy, is a system of healthcare based on the traditional use of herbs to promote health, combined with a modern scientific understanding of plants, disease and diagnosis.

It is a holistic approach where the practitioner seeks:

  • To gently support and encourage the body's own ability to heal itself with the aid of natural therapies
  • To identify and correct the underlying cause of poor health rather than simply focus on symptoms

It is a system designed to work with the human body in a way that is both safe and effective.


"Revolutionary though modern medicine has been, there are a host of illnesses, from depression to multiple sclerosis, for which there is no magic bullet. Some respond better to the kind of mixtures found in herbs"

New Scientist, May 2001
