Therapies Available At Herbal Origins Centre

Herbal Medicine

Herbal Medicine is the most ancient form of healthcare known to mankind. With its rich tradition and proven effectiveness, it continues to be the most widely form of medicine in the world. The term "herb" refers to all plants with medicinal value. Although more than 380,000 species of plants have been identified, only a mere 2% are being used for medicinal purpose, with many more probably yet to be discovered.

Subtlety of action is the key to most herbal treatment. Effects come slowly but the results are often long lasting. A professionally trained herbalist is well versed with the properties of medicinal plants and may prescribe them to prevent or treat a wide range of health complaints.

At the Herbal Origins Centre, we use liquid herbs as the choice of herbal form. Herbal liquid preparations confer many advantages over tablet, capsule or dried herbs and these are:
  1. The herbalist is able to easily tailor-make a unique formulation according to the individual needs of each patient when dispensing liquid herbs.
  2. Liquid herbs are better absorbed and assimilated into the bloodstream. This means greater potency and quicker results.
  3. The manufacture of liquid herbs involves minimal processing - there are no chemical fillers, binders, colourants, preservatives, etc. Herbal liquid preparations reflect the herb in its true, original form.
  4. Liquid herbs offer considerable dose flexibility and many people find swallowing liquids easier compared to a handful of herbal tablets.
  5. Herbal liquids are ideal prescription for small children.

Clinical Nutrition & Diet Counseling

A proper, healthy diet serves as the foundation for all forms of natural therapies. There is an old naturopathic saying, "All diseases begin in the gut" meaning that any disorder or sluggishness of digestion can be a major contributor to the development of many more sinister diseases of the body. Herbalists and other natural therapists have known for a long time that many chronic diseases originally begin with poor digestive function. An optimally-working digestive function is important for general health and prevention of more serious ailments. Thus, our herbalist will guide each patient through diet counseling as they form an important part of overall treatment for many diseases.

Some people may benefit from specialized diet programmes that match their blood types. There are four blood groups - O, A, B and AB. The science of blood offers a powerful means of interpreting individual variations in health and disease. There are four main blood groups - O, A, B and AB. A chemical reaction occurs between your blood and the foods you eat. In particular, lectins, a type of protein found in foods, interact in different ways according to your blood type. The herbalist will determine if you will benefit from a blood-group diet after detailed consultation with you.

Aside from a healthy diet, the use of pure, concentrated vitamins, minerals and/or other nutritional supplements may be prescribed for the prevention or treatment of certain diseases. Many common health complaints such as acne, eczema, gout, infertility, hypertension etc. benefit from appropriate use of dietary supplements.

Bach Flower Remedies

In the 1930s', Dr. Edward Bach perfected and put into use a system of medicine based on 38 plant and flower remedies that assist in balancing the entire range of human emotions. He believed disharmony between the emotional and mental aspects will lower the body's vitality, allowing disease to arise. By balancing negative emotions, the body will experience harmony again and, thus, good health.

The Bach flower remedies have withstood more than 50 years of usage and still enjoy powerful recommendations all over the world. They are completely safe, without side-effects and is non-habit forming. The Bach flower remedies are suitable for everyone, including babies, pregnant women, the elderly and those who are on medical prescriptions.

In line with the principles of natural and holistic medicine, our herbalist may recommend Bach flower remedies to complement the herbal/nutritional treatment. It is important to remember that a healthy mind plus a healthy heart, ensures a healthy body!

Reiki comes from the Japanese words Rei, meaning "universal", and Ki, meaning "life force". The concept of life force is recognized in many cultures and used in many natural therapies, such as acupuncture, shiatsu, tai chi and yoga. In Chinese culture, this life force is referred to as Qi, in Indian culture, as Prana, and by Egyptians, as Ka. Reiki is not a religion and can be practised by everyone.

Reiki is a method of using universal energy to enhance wellbeing and was founded by Dr. Mikao Usui in Japan. It is a pure, simple, direct and accessible form of healing. Universal energy flows through all of us. However, this flow of energy can be impeded during periods of stress and illness. Through a hands-on technique, Reiki is used to restore the flow of energy and bring balance and peace to the mind, body and spirit.

A Reiki practitioner is trained to draw energy from the universal life force that is all around us and then let that pure energy flow through his/her hands into the person who needs healing. The practitioner acts simply as a channel through which the energy flows to the patient. Reiki can be used successfully in conjunction with herbal medicine, Bach flower remedies, vitamins, homeopathy, aromatherapy and all other forms of therapy, including orthodox medical treatment. Reiki is said to be particularly useful for people suffering from chronic conditions, such as allergies, pain, headaches, insomnia etc. It is believed that these conditions are merely a surface symptom of deeper body dis-ease.
