Herbal medicine is the oldest known form of medicine and has been used for thousands of years to treat illness and restore good health. As a Medical Herbalist, I will combine the traditional use of herbs with modern scientific knowledge and research to create your very own individual herbal prescription which will not only treat your symptoms, but also the underlying cause of ill-health.

As an Herbalist, I am able to treat a wide range of conditions both acute and chronic. I have been trained to take into account any health problems and / or any medication which is being prescribed and if necessary will know when to refer you to a doctor or other professional.[/vc_column_text][vc_divider height=”5″][vc_icon_header align=”left” icon=”leaf” icon_color=”#555″ size=”32″]A healthier lifestyle[/vc_icon_header][vc_column_text]Your course of treatment may involve specific dietary advice, and help to develop a healthier  lifestyle, in addition to a bespoke, individually designed and prepared herbal prescription. No two patients are alike, even if they appear to be suffering similar symptoms, so no two prescriptions are exactly the same. In treating your symptoms, I aim to rebalance and strengthen the system overall.[/vc_column_text][vc_divider height=”5″][vc_icon_header align=”left” icon=”leaf” icon_color=”#555″ size=”32″]Individual consultations and prescribing[/vc_icon_header][vc_column_text]It is important to clarify that herbalists do not simply dispense remedies, indeed many over the counter remedies may be inappropriate. As an Herbalist, I am trained to identify the underlying cause of disease and thus will treat each person (not health problem) very specifically.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_icon_header align=”left” icon=”leaf” icon_color=”#555″ size=”32″]Your first visit[/vc_icon_header][vc_column_text]On your first visit you may expect a minimum of an hours consultation which involves the taking of a detailed case history covering not only your present problems, but also your wider medical history, present medication, lifestyle, diet, and social circumstances.
