Herbal medicine is the study of pharmacognosy and the use of medicinal plants, which are a basis of traditional medicine. The common factor in many people seen by a medical herbalist is that they have a chronic health problem that is not getting better by itself.
A medical herbalist studies for at least three years full-time to reach the standard required to register as a professional with the NZAMH. Our Members represent the pinnacle of the profession, many with extensive clinical experience. Each year they are required to submit Continued Professional Development (CPD) which ensures they stay up to date with the latest herbal research, information and practice methods.
