It was recently reported to us herbalists that the doctor/herbalist who works in the NHS at the Royal London Hospital of Integrated Medicine had the claims in his NHS published practice leaflet challenged by the ASA. After one year, the ASA (Advertising Standards Agency) has produced a list of conditions which they say have evidence for herbal treatment. This list will soon be able to be used by all herbalists in the UK, since the evidence is sufficiently robust for the claims to be made.
Conditions for which some herbal medicines were found to have some effect included: functional dyspepsia, irritable bowel syndrome, premenstrual syndrome, back pain and OA, depression, some forms of acute infections including acute rhinosinusitis, the common cold, uncomplicated upper respiratory tract infections, influenza types A and B and migraine.

About Me:

My name is Stephaney Allinson and I am a Western Medical Herbalist practising in rooms at 4, Queen Street Leeds, LS1 2TW.

I am a member of the College of Practitioners of Phytotherapy (CPP) and a member of the National Institute of Medical Herbalists (NIMH) so I am fully equipped to treat people at all stages of life and have no problem working with people who are currently on long or short term conventional medication. There is also a possibility when you come to see me there will be students in the clinic. If you are not comfortable with this let me know when booking the appointment. The services I offer are face to face consultation in the clinic, Skype consultations and home visits. Please contact me to discuss which is the best option for you.  Currently I'll be at my clinic rooms on Queen Street between 1pm and 8pm on a Tuesday only. I am however, contactable whenever not just during those times.

What is Herbal Medicine?

Condensed into a single sentence Herbal Medicine is the use of plant remedies in the treatment of illness and disease. However, in reality tra-ditional Herbal Medicine (of whichever system) is so much more than that. In conjunction with a consultation from a suitably qualified practitioner Herbal Medicine strives to create balance in a person so that their own innate healing systems can be employed in the healing process. This differs from allopathic medicine (GP’s, NHS etc) which tends to be much more reductionist in its approach and the medication itself is designed to take over the specific function that is having a problem rather than working with the body to gently adjust its own systems towards wellness.

Herbs and plants can be prepared and used in many ways. They can be taken internally as tinctures, teas, powders, syrups, or capsules. Externally, they can be applied as lotions, oils, salves and in baths. Such remedies have been used since the beginning of human history. Many of today’s pharmaceutical drugs are based on isolated chemical parts of plants. In contrast, herbal medicines are extracts of the whole plant (i.e. the whole root or entire leaves) and contain numerous plant constituents. Herbalists believe that the therapeutic actions of a plant are the result of a balanced relationship between all the plant's constituents. Using whole plants this way can prevent the many side effects that are often associated with pharmaceutical drugs
