Botanical Medicine

Herbs are medicine. Naturopaths are trained to prescribe botanical (herbal) medicine to their patients. Herbs are safe for any age patient and are commonly used for most any condition.

Not every herb is for every person, some are toxic some can cause side effects in high doses, some are too strong for elderly or children. So it is very useful to see a doctor who can guide you and provide you with safe therapeutic botanical medicine. Also naturopaths are trained in pharmacology and can predict any possible reactions with pharmaceutical drugs.

More and more herbs are studied every day, ND’s utilize this knowledge in combination with historic and traditional use of the plants. Many herbs used today come from European and western traditions.
