Herbal medicine is medicine made from plants, either the whole plant or sometimes parts of it, for example leaves, flowers, roots or bark. It has been the main source of medicine used by people for thousands of years. Medical herbalists make use of plants whose traditional uses are backed up by modern scientific research and clinical trials. They hold a BSc degree or equivalent in Herbal Medicine, and have studied orthodox medicine as well as plant medicine. Herbalists take a holistic approach to illness, and treat the underlying cause of disease rather than just the symptoms. They are able to prescribe herbal remedies to be used alongside other medication and treatments.
