Herbal Medicine
by Somerset Health Practice

Every culture has a relationship with healing through herbs which is thought to be the oldest known system of medicine. Some cultures have retained this knowledge and expertise more than others.

Herbal Medicine

Modern 'developed' cultures are paying more interest to the effectiveness of herbal medicines because of their lack of side effects and their ability to treat many conditions for which modern medicine has no cure.

When a herbalist selects a prescription by constructing a formula the whole individual is taken into account and its effectiveness is in the combined synergy of the herbs which is unique to that person and their environment.
