What is a Naturopathic Medicine?


The aim of naturopathy is to address the health of the whole person rather than to merely eliminate or suppress symptoms.


There is nothing new about the use of herbs to promote recovery, health and well-being. Every culture in the world has at some point used herbs as the basis for its medicine.


In fact, modern medicine has its roots in the use of herbs. Until about 50 years ago, nearly all of the entries in pharmacopoeias describing the manufacture of drugs indicated a herbal origin. Only since the refinement of chemical technology has the use of herbs apparently diminished - though the majority of drugs still have their origin in plant material.


Human beings do not exist in isolation any more than parts of the body do. Herbal medicine recognises that herbs can work on the whole being, not just on specific systems. It works "Synergistically". This means that the whole effect of a herbal remedy is vastly greater than the sum of its individual constituents. 


If we just look at herbs as a source of valuable individual chemicals, we would limit their healing power.


With the insights that modern physiology provides about homeostasis, (the body's own process of maintaining a stable environment), it is clear that herbs used in the right way will support this balancing process. 


“Many have died while the plants that could have saved them grow on their graves”

Hippocrates 460B.C - 377 B.C


We have a strong belief, here at Pharma Botanica, that nature has always provided us with the answers. 


There is no need to alter or concentrate what the planet already grows for us in abundant supply to keep us and, other living creatures healthy.  We also share DNA with plants.


The use of medicinal herbs for human healing can be traced back as far as 8,000 B.C during the stone age. Even Chimpanzees have been seen to self-select medicinal herbs for relief of disease.


Herbalism is the natural therapy of choice for people concerned with the preservation of the whole planet.

Humanity itself exists in the context of the entire planet. All these levels work together in a dynamic integrated system. 


It seems clear that many health issues are connected with cultural and ecological problems and often reflect our alienation from nature and “natural” lifestyles. 


Herbalism can play a major role in bridging this separation. With its reverence for life and the relationship it establishes between plants and people, herbalism is close to the heart of the greener vision that is slowly but surely changing our cultural world view.


However, there arises an unfortunate 20th century dilemma for the phytotherapist. 


Some of the primary remedies for our health, used by our ancestors of previous centuries are now seriously endangered species. 


All Pharma Botanica products contain pure plants and not chemically derived extracts equivalent to the herb. By encouraging the commercial cultivation of herbs, we can ensure their survival.
