Herbal Medicine

Herbal medicine is one of the oldest forms of medicine in existence. Before the development of pharmaceutical drugs, herbs were used by medical practitioners to treat a wide array of ailments. Herbal medicine is one of the main treatments utilized by Naturopathic Physicians.

At A New Leaf Naturopathic Clinic, herbal formulas are utilized in capsule form or liquid form, otherwise known as a tincture. Our herbal tinctures come from herbs grown all over the world and are formulated specifically for each patient. Tinctures are typically made up of a unique combination of herbs, each herb targeting a given symptom or condition.

Herbal formulas must be taken at a certain dose to be effective and may interact with certain medications. It is important to seek advice from a qualified practitioner to ensure that the herbal formula and its dose are right for you!
