The Perfect Balance

Mother Nature is the perfect pharmacopeia and has everything we need to heal and live in balance. Living plants are perfectly complex systems of interacting chemicals working in synergy. In a beautiful dance, different constituents influence one another, modifying, stabilising, potentiating and enhancing as required. Within this natural synergy, the medicine gives much more than we can record, offering deeply healing wisdom for the human body and matching its equally complex, synergistic system. Their combined synergy produces a combined healing effect greater than the sum of their separate parts.


Humans and plants have co-evolved, which is why our bodies intrinsically recognise and have mechanisms for accurately metabolising plant materials. Certain compounds in plants perform the same function in the human body; think of antioxidant polyphonic compounds that protect plant cells from oxidation – they also protect human cells from oxidation when used within a whole plant medicine.

Knowing this, it’s easy to understand how plant medicine can be used for acute and chronic health issues – from treating the common cold and controlling blood pressure, to easing anxiety and balancing hormones.

"We recommend that plant-based medicines be used as a preventative measure or be taken at the earliest onset of illness, giving the plants time to strengthen the body’s natural responses."


Healing plant medicine goes back further than recorded history and has a proven track record spanning millions of years. Animals and insects also use plants as medicine – interesting observations have been recorded with primates, dogs, monarch butterflies and sheep ingesting medicinal plants when they are ill.

Much of Western medicine has its origin from the plant kingdom. Aspirin was one of the first medicines to be based on an isolated plant constituent. Salicin, which is a precursor to salicylic acid, was isolated from white willow (Salix alba) and meadowsweet (Spirea alba) and converted into acetylsalicylic acid, or aspirin as it came to be known. Unlike the plant constituent salicin, which is converted in the gut to the active salicylic acid, acetylsalicylic acid would come into direct contact with the stomach lining and often lead to bleeding ulcers. Whole plant extracts have fewer side effects than isolated extracts of plants. Our aim is to make unadulterated whole plant extracts available to all.

“Seeking wisdom from nature is something humans instinctively know how to do, and have benefitted from. Tapping in to that wisdom and the healing power of plants makes so much more sense than relying on synthesised products that often have highly detrimental side-effects.”
