About Herbal Medicine

Herbal medicine is one of the oldest kind of therapy practiced by mankind. It uses plant materials (leaves, berries, roots, barks…) that can be combined in the form of infusions, tinctures or powders, to address the individual’s complaints. Western herbal medicine mainly uses herbs native to Europe, but also taps into the North American, Ayurvedic and Chinese herbal traditions. Each herb has a unique energetic profile (e.g., temperature, moisture…), which is matched to the person’s constitution, to re-establish balance and health. Thousands of years of use throughout the history of mankind, combined with the latest scientific research make herbal medicine a safe and effective therapy for those who wish to complement their current treatments or find a natural alternative.

Why herbal medicine?

Digestion

The ancient traditions teach us that health starts in the gut. Increasing evidence now suggests many chronic conditions are associated with poor digestive function and an imbalanced intestinal flora. A tailored herbal formula can improve digestion by targeting symptoms like heartburn, constipation, bloating and discomfort.

Stress, Anxiety and Fatigue

In times of emotional and/or physical pressure, a bespoke herbal formula can replenish the body’s vitality, calm the mind and provide long-lasting balanced energy. The difficult times we are living have brought a lot of anxiety and worry, and herbs can be of great support to relieve emotional tension.

Sleep

Do you struggle falling asleep or do you wake up several times during the night? Do you feel rested when you wake up? These questions help the herbalist understand what herbs might be most appropriate for you. There can be many causes for sleeplessness or poor quality sleep and each herb has a specific quality and action for targeting symptoms.

Women’s Health

Children are very receptive to herbal remedies. With the herbalist’s help, it is possible to safely improve complaints like colics, skin rashes, recurrent colds and coughs.
