Medical Herbalism at Meadows Wellbeing
Medical Herbalism uses medicine made from plants, often the whole plant but sometimes parts of plants like the roots or seeds.
Herbs have been used for centuries as medicines and nowadays modern scientific research confirms knowledge our ancestors passed down through the generations. With a focus on the whole patient, not just current symptoms, a herbalist will make a medicine which is usually a combination of plants tailored specifically to the individual.
Many people come to herbal medicine for a solution to long standing issues. Herbal medicine can often help resolve hormonal issues, skin complaints, joint, respiratory, post viral troubles, stress, anxiety and much more.
