Plant medicine can be helpful to support a wide range of medical conditions.

These are examples of conditions people have found herbal medicine helpful with:

Acute infections

Both viral and bacterial infections, including colds, flu, sinusitis, cystitis, otitis. 

Respiratory infections and immunity

There is ample evidence supporting the use of some medicinal plants such as Echinacea, Elderberry or Thyme in the treatment of simple infections that involve the respiratory system. Our herbal preparations can be very effective in strengthening the immune system and helping symptoms of colds and flu.

Fungal infections

For example athlete's foot, thrush and ringworm. 


Medicinal plants can be helpful with allergic responses such as hay fever, asthma and rhinitis.

Chronic fatigue

Medicinal plants can be effective helping manage chronic fatigue syndrome, ME and long Covid-19. 


Some mechanisms of action of certain medicinal plants make them particularly helpful in managing auto-immune conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease (please see below), thyroid conditions and  psoriasis amongst others.


Cardiovascular conditions

Mental Health 

Medicinal plants, together with other strategies, can support your mental health including stress related issues, anxiety, depression and bereavement. 

Diabetes control

Most patients have been able to successfully manage their non-insulin dependant diabetes with diet and medicinal plants. Patients are often able to reduce or wean off their medication when able to adhere to our dietary and lifestyle recommendations.

Osteoarthritis (wear and tear of joints)

Patients have found herbal preparations very helpful for their painful and inflamed joints. The combination of using an internal preparation (liquid form) with the external application of herbal creams has been considerably successful in helping people manage the symptoms of osteoarthritis. Some supplements have good evidence for the treatment of the wear and tear of joints. Dietary and lifestyle modifications are also important in the treatment plan for people suffering with osteoarthritis.

Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn's Disease (Inflammatory Bowel Disease)

When IBD is not too advanced, medicinal plants can be very effective in controlling symptoms and helping modulate the immune response that contributes to flares in ulcerative colitis and Crohn's Disease.
