With so many amazing advances in modern science it would be easy to dismiss the age-old insights of herbal medicine as ‘quaint’. But scientists are actively studying the ways in which plants can heal us and, finally, the tide is starting to turn. As a herbalist and medical doctor who’s used plants to treat patients for over 30 years, I’m delighted to be part of this resurgence. The lesson? Nature can be a powerful remedy for some of life’s most common ailments.
