What is a Medical Herbalist?
When treating the client a Medical Herbalist seeks out the underlying cause of the health problem and, once identified, it is this, which is treated rather than the symptoms alone. A Medical Herbalist can also provide accurate information on any possible contraindications and/or potential drug-herb interactions.
Medical Herbalists are highly trained practitioners that combine the use of botanical medicine, science, nutrition and supplements to restore health. Medical Herbalists are not doctors, nor do they diagnose; they are, however, trained in the same diagnostic skills as orthodox doctors and take a more holistic approach to illness. They have completed at least 4 years of study in Herbal Medicine and have had extensive training in anatomy, physiology, pathology, clinical assessment, pharmacology, biochemistry, botany, materia medica, and philosophy of Herbal Medicine, therapeutics and nutrition. The National Institute of Medical Herbalists is a worldwide recognised governing body representing herbal practitioners, originally founded in 1864.
