Western Herbal Medicine
Consultant Medical Herbalist based in Chesham
Herbal medicine is the oldest and still the most widely used system of medicine in the world today. It is medicine made exclusively from plants. It is used in all societies and is common to all cultures.
Herbal medicine is increasingly being validated by scientific investigation which seeks to understand the active chemistry of the plant.
Many modern pharmaceuticals have been modeled on, or derived from plants. Examples are the medication aspirin derived from Willow (Salix alba) or Taxol, a chemotherapy drug used to treat cancer, derived from the yew tree.
I look forward to welcoming you at my clinic!
