Herbs on Prescription?

New research shows 82 per cent of us would like our doctors to suggest a clinically proven herbal remedy for PMS, Menopause, Anxiety or Cystitis before prescribing drugs, which often have side effects.

TV's Dr Pixie McKenna has launched Right To Choose Your Medicine, campaigning for GP's to be able to give herbal medicines on prescription, making quality products more affordable. In the meantime, new legislation ensures only licensed herbal products will be on sale.


* Avoid old unlicensed products by looking for the THR (Traditional Herbal Remedy) product number.

* If your doctor can's advise on over-counter herbals, ask your pharmacists or health-food shop for advice.
