"Treat the person, not the disease"
First and foremost, please remember that as a holistic therapy, in Herbal Medicine, it is the person who is treated - not the condition. Medical Herbalists treat people with most short and long-term medical conditons that they would normally consult their doctor about. All medical herbalists are trained to know when to refer a patient on to another therapist or orthodox doctor. Many herbalists also receive referals from doctors and hospital consultants for conditons where conventional treatments are not proving effective.
Herbal medicine is perfectly suitable to use with all ages.
