Herbal Medicine
Chinese and Naturopathic medicine uses natural drug-free medicinal substances that are mainly extracted from plants. These may be prescribed to take internally as vegetable capsules, tablets, tinctures or drinks or applied externally in the form of lotions or ointments depending on the condition. Medicines are selected according to individual diagnosis, helping to stimulate your body to maximise healing capacity and speed of recovery. Immunity is strengthened and energy levels increased. Natural medicines tend to work less quickly than synthetic pharmaceutical drugs but more gently and, in most cases, with no side effects. Whilst having no side effects, they can still have a strong effect on the body and can be used to treat even severe or chronic conditions.
All our pharmacies are controlled by the MHRA (Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency) and the RCHM (Register of Chinese Herbal Medicine) to assure the highest quality and that our medicines adhere strictly to the CITES (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species) regulations.  
Chinese herbal medicine is the most widely practiced medical system in the world today, with over one quarter of the world's population benefiting from this treatment. Orthodox medicine has now researched and recognised the actions of many Chinese herbal medicinals confirming what Chinese physicians have known and practiced for thousands of years. Adverse reactions are extremely rare and are negligible when compared to those commonly produced by many of today's pharmaceutical drugs. When practiced correctly by qualified physicians, Chinese herbal medicines are very safe. They are carefully considered for their therapeutic and biomedical effects, contraindications and interactions with any pharmaceutical drugs you are taking, ensuring prescriptions are safe and tailored to your particular health needs.
