Herbal medicine uses plants to improve health or relieve disease. It is as old as humanity and there are signs to indicate that even some animals will eat specific plants when they are unwell. The Ancient Greeks used herbs and the first recorded herbal text was written by an ancient Greek in the fourth century BC. Egyptians, Arabs, and Romans all employed herbs as medicine and there are signs that Neanderthal man may have used herbs for healing 60,000 years ago.

Today many pharmaceutical drugs are based on isolated, active ingredients extracted from herbs and herbs are being tested on people and animals and in test-tubes to determine which biochemical pathways they affect. Ironically, the results generally confirm that the herb does exactly what herbalists have been saying it did for the last 2000 years! An advantage of the test work is that manufacturers are able to ensure that their herbal products contain acceptable proportions of identified active ingredients, guaranteeing efficacy and reliable, safe dosing.

Traditional herbalists use the whole herb (seed, leaf, bark or root) knowing that the myriad of “active ingredients” and nutrients act synergistically to benefit the whole human organism – a truly holistic method of treatment. Unfortunately, pharmaceutical drugs tend to contain only one isolated active ingredient (or synthetic copy of the active ingredient) that has been observed to work in a particular way on a specific biochemical pathway, Drug manufacturers and users then wonder why side effects and complications occur. The complexity of human biochemistry cannot be understood, plotted or predicted anymore than the movements of one person can be predicted during peak hour traffic in a city like New York . However, the effects of whole herbs on the whole human organism have been observed and recorded for 2000 years.

Many people have the impression that a natural medicine cannot harm you, but this is not true. To ensure efficient and safe use of herbs, they need to be prescribed and their use supervised by a qualified professional. Louise, from Simply Natural Health Care, will often prescribe a liquid herbal preparation which is mixed to your particular requirements. The liquid extracts contain the symbiotic benefits of the whole herb and are tailored to your particular needs in ways that proprietary products are not.
