herbal medicine

Evidence-based approach to natural medicine

I became a Naturopath because of my love herbal medicine and how they can have such amazing effects on people’s health

What is herbal medicine?

Herbal medicine is the oldest and still the most widely used system of medicine in the world today. It’s used in all societies and is common in all cultures.

I am qualified to practice Western Herbal Medicine, which is based on European herbal medicine traditions.


What are the benefits?

Plants contain active ingredients, called phytonutrients, and it’s these ingredients that help modify and improve our bodies and health and is┬ábecoming more validated by scientific investigations that seek to understand the active ingredients of the plant.

I prescribe herbal medicine either via liquid tinctures, where I can create a formula specific for your needs at that particular time.

I also have tablet herbal formulas for those who don’t like the taste of the liquids (not great tasting – they’re medicine, not food!). Again, these are high quality practitioner-only products.

I use herbal medicine when required in my Naturopathic treatment plans available either ONLINE or in my clinic located at 165 Lake Street Cairns.
