Herbs have been used as medicine for millennia. Before the early twentieth century, natural methods of curing people were common and since the late twentieth century more and more people have become disillusioned with Western medicine and are seeking natural ways to cure their ills. in fact many pharmaceuticals use derivatives of, or attempt to recreate in the lab, bioactive ingredients of natural plants For example, aspirin is a derivative of salicylic acid, which as salicin occurs in the flower buds of meadowsweet and in the bark and leaves of several trees, notably the white willow.
We have everything available on this planet in nature to keep us well and to cure us from disease, by helping our bodies to heal. We just need to have the knowledge to know what to use, in what dosage and how to prepare it. Herbs often work synergistically ie their compound effect works better with other herbs, rather than sole herbs. This is why herbal formulae have been developed and why we often recommend multiple formulae to be taken together. Each herb has many benefits and nutrients including antioxidants and phytonutrients which nourish our bodies, to support our or gans and systems, reducing symptoms and enabling us to heal.
The nourishing balancing herbal formulae that we currently stock and advise clients to take were formulated in the UK. These formulae have been tried and tested for decades. Often, it’s best to take multiple herbal formulae and we tailor according to the individual’s requirements.
We recommend individual formulae based on an Iridology analysis and the results from Optimal Naturopathic Health and Nutrition Consultations.
All our herbs are organic, made to Herbs of Grace Formulae by a herbalist who is part of the British Herbal medicine Association and the Unified Register of Herbal Practitioners. The herbs work best alongside changes to lifestyle and nutrition.
Please proceed with caution if pregnant and if taking pharmaceutical drugs, please check with your doctor before taking.
