"I decided to try a herbalist as
I was not sleeping well.
I had been prescribed sleeping
tablets but knew that I would
have to find a healthier solution.
After my appointment with
Jacinta I was given a list
of dietary and exercise
recommendations and a
small bottle of herbs which I
took in water each evening
before bed. After a few days of
doing a daily power walk,
cutting out all caffeine,
eating less sugar and
taking the herbs,
I was finally sleeping all night!
I can't believe the difference
in my health. I'm a new person.
I would definitely recommend
Jacinta. She was very
knowledgeable and caring."
"I was an emotional wreck
with PMS issues, mood swings
and irritability. I'd tried taking
various tablets from the
health food store, but they
didn't seem to help. My doctor
had told me that all I could do
was go on the pill. I asked around
and was given Jacinta's details.
She gave me a herbal drink
to take daily, suggested I change
my diet a little and take some
probiotic capsules. After about 3
months I was feeling better.
I was very impressed with
Jacinta and would not hesitate to
recommend her to my friends

Herbal medicine is medicine made exclusively from plants. It is the oldest and the most widely used system of medicine, being used by over 75% of the world's population. It works to enhance the body's natural healing abilities. Many conditions respond well to herbal medicines. Body systems such as the digestive, immune, lymphatic, reproductive, nervous and circulatory systems may all benefit from herbal medicines as they optimise the body's natural functions to restore balance.
Herbal medicine originally formed the basis for modern pharmaceutical medications. Often the active constituent of a plant has been isolated and synthesized to provide the basis for a standardised drug. Notable examples being aspirin, digoxin, ephedrine, morphine and codeine.
Herbalists prefer to use the whole of the plant as there are other constituents which interact and result in a more beneficial effect. Herbs act to nourish and support the body’s organs, restore and strengthen damaged tissue as well as detoxify and eliminate waste. Herbal medicine is increasingly being validated by scientific investigation which seeks to understand the active chemistry of the plant.
At Peregian Springs Natural Therapies, quality "practitioner-only" products such as Mediherb are used and are all registered and comply with the Therapeutic Goods Administration’s high standards.
