The information and recommendations contained within this web site are not intended to take the place of diagnosis and treatment by a qualified practitioner. We cannot accept responsibility for any adverse effects which arise from self-medication.
Any persistent condition should always be referred to a medical herbalist or doctor, and all medicines, including herbs, should beavoided during pregnancy unless prescribed by a doctor or herbalist.
Never give herbs to babies and children without checking with a qualified professional first. Likewise, never take herbs in conjunction with other medication without first checking whether it is safe to do so.
Many individuals practice as herbalists in spite of having little or no training in medical, pharmacological or botanical sciences. Therefore, it is important to choose a qualified practitioner who is a member of a professional organization with appropriate insurance. They should have completed a minimum of three years full-time training, - you should never be afraid to ask for evidence of this.
Just because herbs are 'natural', it does not mean that they are safe for everyone to use. Only a trained practitioner will be fully aware of potential adverse effects and herb-drug interactions, and will be able to recognize those circumstances in which herbs may not be the most appropriate treatment.
To find your nearest qualified medical herbalist, contact the National Institute of Medical Herbalists (NIMH) or the College of Practitioners of Phytotherapy (CPP), whose members have all undergone a rigorous three to four-year training course and who adhere to a strict professional code of ethics. Contact details are listed below. Your local Yellow Pages may also list herbalists in your area - look for the initials MNIMH, FNIMH or MCPP after their name.
