Herbal Medicine Safety

Is Herbal Medicine safe?

Western Herbal Medicine has an outstanding safety record.

Modern Medical Herbalists draw upon both traditional and Historical knowledge of Herbs as well as the scientific research which shows us how some herbs work with the body.

Your Herbalist has been trained to know of any possible Herb/Drug interactions, although in reality these are few in number and severity.

A Medical Herbalist will always aim to work alongside your G.P. and many herbs are regularly prescribed to support other treatments.

Like all Medicines, Herbs are to be treated with respect and there is no substitute for a consultation with a qualified Medical Herbalist both in terms of advice and the quality of the Herbal Medicines prescribed.
