Herbal medicine or phytotherapy is as ancient as humankind, and uses plants, or parts of plants such as root, stem, leaf, flower, fruit, seed or bark to treat wounds or a condition. Herbs can be healing, enhance general wellness, treat imbalances and support detoxification.
Herbal medicine is an ancient form of healing that finds its roots in many different cultures spread over the world. Herbs are quite subtle and have a more gradual effect on symptoms and wellness than conventional medicine has. Many herbs are rich sources of vitamins, minerals and a variety of micro nutrients that resonate with our metabolic processes. Herbs can be used in different ways, in powder form (capsules/tablets), tinctures or as herbal tea with health benefits. Herbal medicine treat the whole constitution rather than specific symptoms. Herbs are chosen on an individual base to suit your personal condition to treat the cause rather than the effect(s).
