Herbal medicine, or Phytotherapy, is natural green medicine. It has been used for over 2000 years to treat illness and restore good health. Today the World Health Organization estimates that 80% of the world’s population depend on plants as their main source of medicine and research confirms, and updates, the effectiveness of many traditional plant remedies. Medical Herbalists are Herbal Practitioners trained in the medical sciences, and take a holistic approach to patients.
