“Let food be thy medicine…” One of the most famous Hippocrates quotes of all time is essentially what Herbacure is all about. Think about it, we eat fruit, vegetables, we drink tea and coffee and all this is plant based, many fruits contain the same chemical make up and nutrient content as many herbs. Cucumbers have a diuretic action, coffee is a stimulant, pineapple provides digestive enzymes, rosemary as a spice for meats is a wonderful nervine and stimulant for memory and hair growth. If we look at only these few examples, we can see how our kitchen provides many examples of how our food is our medicine.
Herbacure was started in 1996.
It is a complete plant based range of supplements,
which has therapeutic and healing actions to
aid recovery from illness. All herbs have active
ingredients which probe the body to overcome
The original idea was for this range to work
alongside conventional medicine, as every branch
of medicine has its place. Herbs have been used
since the beginning of time to assist health
and medicine has made wonderful advances in
the curing of chronic diseases but as man’s
lifestyle has changed over the last 100 years
we now have more diseases and more resistant
illnesses to treat.
Conventional medical treatment provides symptomatic
relief and antibiotics aid the treatment of
infection. Herbs have a lot to offer in supportive
function and in strengthening the body and so
the two can work together.
Nowadays most commercially available
products from teas, cooldrinks, to cosmetics
are enriched with herbs as it has become a ”fashion
trend” but also people are going back
to basics and exploring other options of health
Today with all the scientific
research available and with major advances in
the natural industry we can use natural medicine
with more clarity and confidence in aiding our
