Evidence based Nutritional and herbal medicine help to assist the body to heal by seeking to treat the underlying cause of disease from a holistic perspective. Treatments are tailored to suit you as a unique individual and are designed to assist the self- healing capacity of your body.

Nutritional medicine not only addresses specific nutrient deficiencies and methods of correcting these deficiencies using food as medicine and/or the prescription of specific nutritional supplements but also considers the way a person absorbs and utilizes nutrients to support normal bodily functions and enhance wellbeing.

Western herbal medicine (WHM) is both a traditional and evidence based form of healing.  The World Health Organisation states that “in many developed countries, 70-80% of the population has used some form of alternative or complementary medicine” and also states that “herbal medicines are the most popular form of traditional medicine”
