Principles of Herbal medicine
- Healing power of nature : recognizing our body has an innate nature to heal. By providing the correct building blocks, your body can create its own health.
- Identify and treat the cause : as a holistic modality, herbal medicine not only treats the symptoms but focuses on treating the underlying cause of the symptoms.
- Treat the whole person : this approach acknowledges that health is influenced by many things – environmental, emotional, social, physical, occupational factors.
- First do no harm : just like medical doctors, herbalists are ethically bound to do no harm. In terms of herbal medicine this means prescribing evidence based dosage, knowledge of herb/drug interactions, using safe effective medicines, and above all doing what is right for the client.
- PRACTiTioner as teacher : the practice of herbal medicine aims to educate the client and to encourage self-empowerment.
- Prevention : support and optimise health in order to prevent disease.
These principle are applied using an evidenced based approach, providing you with safe and effective treatment.
