We know that the sensible and safe use of herbs provides significant empowerment to individuals who can achieve, regain or extend control of their own health care and management.

We have decades of professional experience in multiple health disciplines, including nursing, psychology and natural medicine. We were also senior academics who spent almost 15 years teaching in Australian universities. We each have several degrees including PhD.

So why this site?

We recently developed (go there and take a look) and in the process realized that our extensive use of herbal medicine also needed to be offered. Since herbs are not vitamins or minerals (though some do contain some of these) we thought it needed to have a separate site. And this is it!

Once again we had reservations about many of the existing sites related to herbs. Like the vitamin related sites we found they suffered from problems such as:

  • nameless authors,
  • faceless authors,
  • only an email contact,
  • no broader health understanding,
  • focus on products rather than people,
  • confusing site,
  • confusing or wrong information,
  • no acknowledgement of the risks,
  • serious lack of safety guidelines,
  • and many more shortcomings.

We worry about people learning from or doing business through such web sites. So we decided to provide another one ourselves. We are real people who don't need to hide anything. And while we believe you can trust us, we encourage you to read our policies page and note the disclaimer.

We have sound, professional level knowledge and experience that spans both orthodox (or "regular") and alternative health domains. We are well educated and have a capacity to critically evaluate new developments related to herbal medicine.

Having been Primary Health Care practitioners and academics we are committed to providing information to empower you to make good health choices and take responsibility for your own health. We don't claim to be perfect, no one is, so please get in touch if you think we have made an error.

High standards are important to us. You will find that expressed in various ways. For example, in the:

  • use of gender inclusive language,
  • adoption of web standards,
  • willingness to respond to feedback, and
  • use of a high quality web hosting service.

So, welcome! We sincerely hope you find something of benefit on our site. Take a good look around and you're bound to.

Wishing best of health to you,

Jenny and Peter
