Herbal Medicine
Nowadays Herbalists in the UK operate under the Medicines act of 1968, the legal basis for prescribing Herbal Medicine in the UK Your nutrition is a good way to take in a good amount of herbs every day. However traditionally they have been numerous different ways of how to use and apply herbal medicines.
Herbal Preparations
There are several ways a herbalist can prepare herbs for you:
Tinctures - these are alcoholic herbal extracts
Powders - these are herbs in a powdered form
Loose herbs - which you can use to prepare teas or decotions
Creams or ointments - for topical applications

 

In my clinic I also use:

Herbs offer a natural way to deal with discomforts and diseases. They can complement conventional medicines and help relieve side effects, encourage self-healing and promote wellbeing.

 

Herbs can help with:

Naturopathy
Naturopathic medicine is based on the healing power or nature and employs a range of natural therapies such as nutrition, herbal medicine and homeopathy. It is focussing strongly on disease prevention through a healthy lifestyle and diet.
Naturopathic techniques include nutrition, fasting, detoxification, alkalising, exercise, improving water and sleep quality, coaching, and emotional and mental health.
Iridology
Iridology or Iridodiagnosis is an analysis of the coloured portion of the eye (iris) which provides an understanding of underlying disease patterns. It therefore can help to pinpoint weaknesses of organ systems or tissues which can/should be supported. The Iridology consultation usually consists of an in-depth discussion of iris constitution and signs followed by naturopathic advice to improve lifestyle and support organ systems.
