If you live in the EU, you might be interested in signing this petition (please note you can do so anonymously).
The Government wish to further regulate Herbalists by bringing them under state control, protecting both the function and title of a Herbalist. Alongside this regulation they wish to change the Herbal Medicine laws again to prevent anyone, other than a state regulated herbalist (or possibly other health professional), from prescribing herbs.
This, coupled with a previous change to our herbal medicine laws, will take Herbal Medicine away from the people, with state regulated Herbalists and pharmaceutical companies claiming Herbal Medicine as their own.
Please pass this link and information onto as many people in the EU (patients, family, friends, practioners, MP’s, MEP’s, media) as possible.
Thank you, Chris.
