Conditions Of Use And Important Information
This information is meant to supplement, not replace advice from your doctor or healthcare provider and is not meant to cover all possible uses, precautions, interactions or adverse effects. This information may not fit your specific health circumstances. Never delay or disregard seeking professional medical advice from your doctor or other qualified health care provider because of something you have read on our website. You should always speak with your doctor or health care professional before you start, stop, or change any prescribed part of your health care plan or treatment and to determine what course of therapy is right for you.
Natural therapies have a wide range of potential applications. They can assist the immune system, other systems, or the body’s own natural healing processes. Additionally, they may contain some of the necessary lipids, vitamins, minerals, and amino acids. One of the many thousands of “non-essential but beneficial nutrients” can also come from them. These nutrients, such as bioflavonoids, antioxidants, and other nutritional categories, are frequently discussed.
Herbs, vitamins, and foods that may support bodily health are examples of natural cures. For instance, antioxidants are now thought to be essential for reducing oxidative damage, one of the body’s primary drivers of ageing.
We feel it is our moral duty to inform you of these, even though we cannot legally advertise them on- and offline. This is set out in the Human Medicines Regulations 2012(https://bit.ly/3QIzKeg), which is a local form of the European Herbal Directive 2004/24/EC (https://bit.ly/3tYFc3I). This states, among other requirements, that ‘The regulations govern the advertising and promotion of herbal products to ensure that they are not misleading and do not make unauthorized medicinal claims.’
This prevents any benefits or side effects from being mentioned on the ‘sales’ or advertising pages of any website or literature. As we insist on complying with the legal requirements, we cannot/did not publish this information on the public pages of our website.
This download provides you with generic clinical information about the individual ingredients and the blend. This is contained in this download, available only to those who choose to buy and use the product and decide to download the extra information. In this way, we also comply with other legislation, such as Natasha’s Law.
If you want to find out more information about each medicinal herb, visit our parent website at www.thehortusmedicus.com which lists all our herbal ingredients, benefits, and possible side effects.
Certain natural medicines not only help the body stay healthy under specific conditions, but they can also aid in the resolution of health issues. We recommend speaking with a licensed natural health professional, such as a medical herbalist like us, and/or your healthcare professional for the finest guidance in this area. Regretfully, we cannot legally advertise information about the several uses of natural remedies due to recent changes in UK law, but by downloading this, you accept that this constitutes an initial consultation and that you should contact us for a free consultation should you need any more information or guidance.
