About Herbal Medicine
Herbal Medicine is the safe use of plants and plant extracts to treat and prevent different conditions in adults and children. There is a holistic approach looking for the balance of the mind, body and the environment, with a specific emphasis on health rather than on disease. Traditional Herbal Medicine is based on the knowledge accumulated through ancient times in modern medicine, chemistry, botany and pharmacy. In fact, many of the pharmaceutical drugs are a synthesised version of the naturally occurring compounds found in plants. For instance, the aspirin medicine was derived from the willow bark.
Nowadays, pharmacopeias and current research keep updated with the safety and effectiveness of plants, and around 80% of the population use herbal medicine as a primary form of health care.
Herbal Medicine can help with the treatment of almost any condition, and it can be used as complementary or alternative therapy along with other forms of treatment.
Master herbalists used the Iridology or iris reading to assess the health of the individual in correlation with an intake form. The iris display can show markings, pigments, fibre disposition and colour which indicate areas of the body to strengthen when designing preventative health care protocols. The practitioner will take a picture of both irises during the first consultation and will advise the client with some nutrition and lifestyle recommendations in function of their iris reading.
