Herbal Extracts and Tinctures
The basis of good practice for the herbalist is the herbal dispensary.
There are many advantages to this form of medicine:
Firstly, the formula or tonic is specific to the individual patient. Certain herbs or classes of herbs will be chosen for their action, specifically for the patient, their symptoms and the quality or severity of their symptoms. For example, two patients may have a cough, but their formulas may have a slightly different list of herbs chosen according to the persons medical history, the type of cough and other factors that may be influencing their health. The dry nervous tickle may be treated with Wild Cherry or Passionflower, whilst the asthmatic may have Euphorbia in the mix, where the person with chronic bronchitis may have Grindelia or White Horehound as a choice.
Secondly, the liquid herbal tincture is readily absorbed into the body via the gut wall making it readily bio available to the body. Another advantage is that the dose and choice of herbs can be easily modified according to the patients’ needs and their response or change in health circumstance.
Lastly, the herbal formula has a long shelf life so can be stored for later or future use, particularly in the case of cyclical or on going health issues.
