    WESTERN HERBAL MEDICINE

    Herbal Medicine is a safe and effective way of treating acute and chronic health conditions, but can also aid in preventing health problems.

    Traditionally leaves, roots, bark or seeds of plants were infused or boiled and then ingested as tea or applied as a poultice. Although still a valid method of taking a medicine, nowadays most people prefer the more convenient way of taking herbal tablets or - tinctures.
    Herbal tinctures are liquids, which contain complex chemical active compounds of plants and are taken with some water or juice 2-3 times per day. Herbal tinctures are easily absorbed and aid the body in kick-starting its own healing powers.

    Conditions which can be treated with Herbal Medicine:

  • Digestive: Indigestion, burping, flatulence, constipation, diarrhea, bloating, bad breath, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Crohn’s disease, Ulcerative colitis
  • Immunity: Allergies, food intolerances, hay fever, frequent cold and flues, auto-immune disorders, chronic fatigue syndrome
  • Lymphatic: cellulite, glandular fever, swollen lymph nodes, fluid retention
  • Endocrine: hormonal imbalances, thyroid problems, diabetes
  • Respiratory: sore throats, coughs, bronchitis, sinusitis, catarrh, post-nasal drip, nasal congestion
