Herbal medicines must be regulated

2nd December 2009

Prince Charles has urged the government to press ahead with regulating herbalists to safeguard the public.

Through his charity, the Foundation for Integrated Health, he has indicated that without regulation new EU laws due to come into force in 2011 will ban most of the trade, forcing patients to use bogus outlets. The Prince’s Foundation says the terms of the EU directive will mean many herbalists will no longer be able to offer remedies to their clients and patients will instead turn to the black market.
