This is most probably ‘The’ oldest system of Medicine in the world. The knowledge and wisdom of Herbal tradition has been passed down from the oldest cultures and still today, it remains an important system of healing. It facilitates a rebalancing of the body and assists with our health management. Modern scientific research now supports how our plants relate to human physiological processes. A Herbalist will use this current Evidence Based Clinical Research and possibly Western Herbal Tradition, Ayurvedic Teachings and Traditional Chinese Medicine to treat specific health issues with Tinctures, Teas, Powders, Capsules, Creams, Salves, Poultices, Syrups and Infused oils.
