What is Herbal Medicine?
Herbal medicine, quite simply, is the oldest and most natural form of medicine there is, with treatment based upon the use of herbal extracts in liquid, capsule or tablet form. I like to think of herbs as God's chemical factories. They manufacture so many chemicals that there is a herb for just about every illness known to man somewhere. In fact, some of the strongest and most used drugs are derived from herbs, even penicillin came from a humble fungus!
Each prescription written up by a herbalist is tailor made for the individual patient. Herbal medicines dispensed by herbalists nowadays use herbal extracts that are made to UK GMP, the highest quality demanded of herbal extracts under European and UK legislation.
Herbal medicine can be useful in the treatment of almost all ailments. If you have any questions about a specific ailment, then please call Stuart on 07802 408146.

What Happens at the Consultation?
A visit to the herbalist is very much like visiting your GP. The main differences being that much more time is taken by the herbalist to get to the root of your problems, and you will receive an individually tailored herbal remedy as treatment. The consultation is about you and how to help you back to health. It’s not just about symptoms. Part of your consultation may well include some basic medical tests such as a blood pressure reading.
Stuart will be available for consultations at Alliance Therapy, 24 King St, Carmarthen SA31 1BS, and can be contacted directly on 07802 408146 or e-mail .
