Herbalism is the use of plants for creating therapeutic medicines for the treatment of health issues and to enhance well-being. It has been practiced for centuries and remains fully integrated into most health systems throughout the world. Plants are rich in vitamins, minerals and vital micro-nutrients and they nourish and restore the body’s organs to allow them to function optimally, to stimulate the body’s own innate healing abilities, to achieve internal balance, harmony and health.

What does Herbal Medicine treat ?

Herbal Medicine can help with all the typical conditions you may otherwise consult your GP for and is suitable for people of any age, including children. It provides a careful, caring and holistic approach to your health concerns, seeking to understand the root causes of your ill-health not just focusing on a set of symptoms. As Hippocrates, the Father of Medicine wrote, “it is more important to know what sort of person has a disease than to know what sort of disease a person has” because we all have our own unique set of life circumstances, lifestyles and inherited constitutions.

What to expect from a session with me ?

An initial consultation lasts between 60 – 90 minutes and covers past and present medical history, a comprehensive assessment of all your body systems plus diet and lifestyle factors, to build the fullest possible picture of you and your unique biological makeup. This allows a tailored blend of herbs to be formulated for your specific needs. You will likely be reassessed, about 3 weeks later, to check your progress and to make any adjustments to your herbal prescription. You will find the correct choice of herbs, appropriately administered, frequently produces permanent results with only positive side effects, delivered safely.
