Lincolnshire is home to some of the country’s oldest and most popular herbal medicine stores, and its residents love the products they buy.
The most popular items are herbal medicine lollies, herbal medicine tea, and herbal medicine creams.
But as a growing number of locals are trying to ditch conventional herbal medicines, some are struggling to find affordable alternatives.
Herbal medicine has been around for hundreds of years, but the number of products available in Lincoln and the rest of England has been steadily rising in recent years.
In 2018, Lincolnshire Health NHS Foundation Trust (LHCT) launched its first “Herbal Medicine Wallets” to help people with allergies, asthma, and other health conditions.
LHCT also offers an online “Herbivores” program, which helps people who have a family history of allergies and asthma to get a safe alternative to conventional medicines.
The program is available to people who don’t have access to a prescription or who have asthma and who want to get their own herbal medicine.
“We know that the herbal medicine community has grown exponentially over the last 20 years,” said Sarah Brown, director of community and community engagement at LHCC.
Brown said she hoped that the new program would help more people with a history of asthma, allergies, or other conditions access the medicine they need. “
I’m really proud that we’re working with people in Lincoln to create an opportunity for people who may have never had access to the traditional herbal medicines that we’ve got available in the community to access alternative medicines.”
Brown said she hoped that the new program would help more people with a history of asthma, allergies, or other conditions access the medicine they need.
“If you have asthma, it can be a huge life changing event for your life.
I want to make sure people with this chronic condition get the opportunity to have access, and if they do, they can also use the products we’ve been making available.”
