Herbal medicine is one of the oldest forms of medicine on Earth. Many ancient civilisations used herbs and plants in their medical treatments, and the power of these herbs is just as relevant for us today. Herbalism is an holistic and natural way of approaching and dealing with many illnesses and conditions, e.g.
- Irritable bowel syndrome
- Rheumatic / arthritic conditions
- Respiratory conditions
- Headaches / migraine
- Stress / anxiety / depression
- Menstrual and menopausal symptoms
- High blood pressure
You may have a specific health issue or concern, or perhaps just feeling under par. Whatever it might be, herbs can help you. Where appropriate, herbs can be used safely and effectively alongside conventional medicine. Herbs give your body a medicine that can be easily assimilated. They can help correct imbalances by supporting specific organs and structures in the body.

Naturopathy is underpinned by the fundamental principle: the healing power of Nature, made clear by the ‘Father of Medicine’ Hippocrates twenty-five centuries ago. This principle still holds fast in our modern times, where approaching health issues by encouraging the body’s natural self healing process, ensures a positive and lasting result. This is achieved by identifying and treating the underlying cause of the illness and not just the symptom.
A naturopath sees each individual client as unique and treats them on the principle that each person responds in a different way. This means the client’s treatment plan is specifically tailored to where they stand with their health at that moment.
The naturopathic approach allows the body to detoxify using various methods such as hydrotherapy, massage, and changes in lifestyle and diet. This gives the body the capacity to heal and restore itself to its natural balanced equilibrium and thus vibrant health.
