The detailed version

About Herbs
This section explains methods of gathering and conserving herbs, explains herbal actions, talks about using herbs for health and gives practical guidelines for how to prepare herbs for medicinal use. It also covers the essential oils. The important topic of herb safety is covered.
We take the traditional body system approach here. We don't scare you with "integumentary system", preferring to talk about healthy skin. We also talk about bones and muscles rather than the "musculo-skeletal system" but other more standard names are used, like circulatory, digestive, immune and the other systems. Herbal and other treatments for several common diseases from each system are presented.
Healthy Living
Here we include many simple herbal remedies that we call first aid. We also list herbs to avoid while pregnant. Safety in the use of herbs is a strong theme.
Herbs A » Z
This is a biggie! There are details for 95 common herbs so far. They are currently organized into seven groups, simply alphabetically based. There are details on usage and safety. Most even include how to grow the herbs for keen gardeners.
This section will soon be developed to include our recommendations of the highest quality herbs. Without relaxing quality standards we will ensure they represent excellent value for money.

Site Features

Standards Compliance

We believe in setting high standards. So when it comes to web programming we naturally adopt the W3C standards for websites. We present valid XHTML code with valid CSS. You can learn more by following the links to the right.

In addition to standards compliance, which you can read about in the box, we have introduced a couple of handy features for you.

The first is a rotation of some brief clinical case studies. To help avoid the sameness of pages that may be visited repeatedly as you work through the herb pages, we will rotate the case studies. There should be a fresh one available each time you return to those pages.

The other feature is the inclusion of a sample of The Health Gazette blog. You should be able to see it below and we may place more updates on other pages over time.
