Adaptogenic Broth

Herbal Medicine - Autumn School 2016


Adaptogens are a class of tonic herbs that are used for improving our responses physical and mental to stress, and to promote health and general wellbeing. They include many oriental herbs, such as ginseng and ashwagandha.

We stock them as dried herbs, so you can make your own preparations. We also have them as tinctures, which are just as effective and very simple to use.

We have four standard adaptogenic mixes that we use for coping with stress, boosting immunity and resistance, chronic fatigue and sleep disorders, and boosting endurance and performance. Speak to one of our herbalists if you think this applies to you.

Online Purchasing

Following a directive from our Professional Association, the National Institute of Medical Herbalists, we are no longer able to supply herbal medicines directly to the public without a prior consultation. This is in line with the Human Medicines Regulations (2012), which includes the EU Traditional Herbal Medicine Products Directive (2005), transposed into UK legislation. This effectively means that you can only purchase herbal products that have received a licence from the MHRA (average cost @£50,000 per licence!), which firmly excludes the bulk of a professional herbalist's herbal dispensary. The only exemption to this directive is, as the MHRA state,

"if you are a herbal practitioner, you don't need a licence to supply herbal medicines you create on your premises to patients following one-to-one consultations".

In order to operate within the law we have implemented a gateway so that only people who have had a consultation, either directly or via skype or telephone, and other practising qualified Medical Herbalists may register and have access to online sales. We sincerely regret any inconvenience this may cause, although recognise that it is primarily in the interests of public safety. It is safer and more effective to use herbal medicines under professional guidance. If you wish to find out more about our herbal medicines, or to book a consultation please contact us by phone or email.
