“Many people do not realise that herbs have been used since the beginning of time to treat human ailments. Medical herbalists can use these age old treatments to help patients with their conditions.   Whether their problems are physical or emotional, many people are amazed by how well herbs really work! The week is held in June each year, during the week that includes Midsummers Day, to take advantage of the widest range of medicinal plants that can be found at this time of year ”                                National Institute of Medical Herbalists
