How to find a good herbal supplement
By Laura Smith, Head of Nutrition and Fitness at the National Health Service (NHS), in her keynote speech at the International Congress on Health Promotion in London.
It was a fantastic evening of speeches from speakers from a wide range of disciplines, but the focus was particularly on health and wellness.
The speakers included Dr Helen Firth, Director of the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE), Professor David Nutt, Professor of Biochemistry at University College London, Professor Robert Lustig, Professor and Head of the Department of Clinical Immunology at the University of Cambridge and Dr John Humphrys, Director, National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).
The focus of this event was on the role of herbal supplements in the management of chronic diseases.
A number of herbal products are being studied and there is growing evidence that they have a role to play in preventing and treating a number of conditions.
Dr Firth gave a keynote speech to the event, highlighting the importance of finding a good balance between natural and herbal medicines.
In her speech, she described the benefits of a balanced diet and herbal supplements as a way to reduce the risk of developing chronic diseases including heart disease, cancer, stroke and diabetes.
This is something that is really important, but we have a very limited understanding of the role that herbal supplements play in the body.
She said the evidence for herbal supplements is growing and she is confident that we will be able to identify the best herbal supplements for our patients, and also for those who do not have the opportunity to use herbal supplements.
“We have a lot of data that suggests that supplements are a powerful tool in managing conditions including chronic diseases such as chronic fatigue, type 2 diabetes, asthma and cancer.
She said the role herbal supplements can play in chronic disease management is becoming more and more clear.
We need to be looking at herbal supplements, not just as a supplement but as a complementary therapy, she said.
Many of the herbal products being studied have been developed and are used by people around the world to help them manage their health.
Dr Firth said the research into herbal supplements and their role in the treatment of chronic disease is still in its early stages.
There are so many different herbal supplements available and it’s becoming clear that there is a wide variety of uses and benefits to many of these products.
Dr Humphrys said there are currently about 40 different herbal products in the UK, which are marketed in a range of different countries.
He said the data showing that the use of herbal treatments can be effective in the prevention and treatment of many diseases and conditions, such as heart disease and type 2 diabetics, is very encouraging.
I want to emphasise that these are all natural products, they’re not synthetic.
Dr Lustig said that we have been able to find natural alternatives to synthetic medicines for many years. “
We want to make sure that there’s an appropriate balance of natural and synthetic and that we’re not putting our patients in danger.”
Dr Lustig said that we have been able to find natural alternatives to synthetic medicines for many years.
However, he emphasised that herbal treatments are still not the only way to manage chronic diseases and he called on people to continue using herbal supplements to help control chronic diseases, and to find new therapies.
But the main thing is to find the right balance, he added.
Lustig said there is more to do to support the use and development of new herbal medicines, and that is what he wants to see.
“The way we are going to support this is to look at what the best therapies are in a variety of different conditions and to ensure that they’re affordable, accessible and accessible to everyone.
These therapies can help patients manage chronic disease, and are good for the health of their own health, he told the conference.
We want people to be able access these therapies as well as the natural remedies that we use.”
Dr Humphrys gave a speech to highlight the role supplements play and that they are effective in preventing diseases and illnesses.
He said that there are many different forms of herbal medicines and that people have to choose which one they like best for their own treatment.
For example, he highlighted the role there is to be in balance between the natural ingredients and the synthetic ones.
What we know is that the natural constituents of herbs are often not well tolerated in a lot different conditions.
Dr Smedley, a lecturer at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, said that herbal medicines have the ability to help prevent or reduce inflammation and the symptoms of chronic illnesses.
At the conference, we will also see the latest research that shows that the herbal ingredients can help in preventing or treating some cancers.
He said that this is the first time that a group of researchers have looked at the effects of herbal substances in cancer patients.
