What is Herbal Medicine?

Flowers, leaves, seeds and rhizomes

Herbal medicines have been used for thousands of years. In fact, many pharmacy based medicines were originally extracted from plants.  Aspirin is one example as it was originally obtained from bark of the Willow tree.

Most naturopaths in Australia carry an herbal dispensary and prepare the blends based on your medical history, your current presenting symptoms and always take into account any medicine interactions to ensure the best healing action possible.

How do I take Herbal Medicine?

Herbal Medicines are dispensed in liquid form and are taken a few times a day according to your personal needs and circumstances. This is determined by your consultation which is a thorough process and includes a full medical history, presenting symptoms, Iridology assessment and if necessary, functional pathology testing.

Herbal active ingredients are taken into account when preparing a formula for you. We identify presenting symptoms as a pathway to determine the cause of any ill health you may be feeling.

One of the great benefits of using Iridology as part of your consultation is that your iris fibre patterns and colours determine what correct herbal medicines will assist your vital force to regain its natural healthy balance.
