A TRADITIONAL FORMULA WITH MODERN APPLICATIONS
The modern practice of Chinese herbal medicine draws on a tradition which is at it’s core thousands of years old.

A herbal medicine treatment begins with the classical TCM diagnostic process. Following the signs and symptoms seen during diagnosis our practitioners will develop a prescription of herbs, primarily plant components, for administration orally or as an external poultice or unguent.

In the UK, herbs are strictly regulated, ensuring that outdated ingredients such as animal products or toxic compounds are never used as part of a TCM herbal medicine treatment. At the Natural Health & Wellness we take the sourcing and distribution of our herbal ingredients very seriously. To ensure the purity of our herbal products and to comply with our strict policy on ethical sourcing, all suppliers are subject to an ongoing supplier approval program.
Our herbal prescriptions are provided to order on a week by week basis and are easily taken in the form of herbal powders mixed simply with water.
