When you walk into AHARA HEALTH you will see a couple things – numerous green plants, bright open spaces, me sipping herbal tea and our stunning herbal dispensary.
As a Naturopath, Western Herbal Medicine is a tool we often use to support our client’s short-term and long-term health. Each bottle, each herb and each plant have a unique prescription that can be used to support wellness.
Herbal Medicine has been used for centuries and centuries, with each culture and country bringing their unique take on the prescription. Some of the more popular known herbs are chamomile and echinacea! Today, scientists and researchers are doing amazing studies to discover these therapeutic benefits and putting further science behind the traditional uses.
Herbal medicine can be in the form of a liquid tincture (what you can find in the amber and green bottles at AHARA HEALTH), teas and tisanes and even dried into a powder.
How can herbal medicine support your needs?
I adore using herbal medicine with my clients, as it often provides quick results and encourages change… don’t get me wrong, the taste can take some convincing – but you get used to them!
In clinical practice (and after a full naturopathic consultation) you may leave with a bottle of liquid herbs or a blend of herbal tea. Every tincture blend is unique to the individual and their specific health needs.
