A few nice messages from some of my regular clients…

 

[icon]leaf[/icon]Mel has treated me for a number of chronic conditions which conventional medicine has been unable to remedy for almost twenty years.

I am now experiencing proper sleep and am free from the digestive problems which have affected my quality of life for so long.

[icon]leaf[/icon]Mel’s herbal healing has worked for me, going through the menopause.

The herbal mixes are tailor-made, helping with the symptoms at the time. It’s very personal and Mel is very intuitive and so very helpful. I always call if I have a problem and she promptly replies. She is extremely knowledgeable on all health matters.

[icon]leaf[/icon]I am 63 and was suffering from leg and back pain from ankylosing spondylitis, post nasal drip, stress and bereavement when I first visited Mel.

Six months later I have less pain, post nasal drip has greatly improved and I’m feeling much happier. I have also lost 1 stone in weight and will continue to visit Mel for her expert advice and medicines. Don’t hesitate!

[icon]leaf[/icon]I have really benefited in so many ways from Mel’s excellent practice.

The consultations are thorough, caring and relaxed and I feel as if I have been treated as an individual not just a symptom. I love the fact that my body is being helped to heal naturally and feel that this is a more sustainable and long-term approach. I don’t know what I would have done without Mel’s herbal medicines as I wasn’t getting any help from conventional medicine and my symptoms were just getting worse and worse. I have seen real progress with my original problem as well as improvements to other areas of my health. I just wish I’d known about Mel years ago!

[icon]leaf[/icon]I found Mel through the internet, and having seen she was accredited, made a call to her and have never looked back.

Throughout my treatment she has been extremely professional, approachable and helpful, combining a wealth of knowledge with a lovely ‘bedside manner’.  I have been lucky to find such an expert and have already recommended her several times.  Her ability and willingness to help are a breath of fresh air, and her knowledge of conventional medicines and their implications with herbal treatment is very reassuring.  Mel has treated me not just for the original problems I presented with, but also other concerns I had.  I feel safe and confident under her care and do not hesitate to recommend her for all health issues.

[icon]leaf[/icon]As a devotee of herbal medicine I was at a loss when my previous herbalist retired.

He suggested I try Mel who is local to my area and have found her to be very knowledgeable and proficient and would have no problem recommending her to anybody else who wants to try a fully-qualified medical herbalist as an alternative to the NHS in order to help with their medical problems.

[icon]leaf[/icon]I have been seeing Mel for issues around my mood, blood pressure and general health and well being.

From my first meeting with her I have always found her to be genuinely interested in me as a person and willing to listen at all times. Mel soon picked up on the issues that needed dealing with and within a few weeks my blood pressure started to lower and my mood improved. With Mel’s support and the treatment she has prescribed I am now feeling much healthier and happier. She also makes a fantastic brew!!

[icon]leaf[/icon]Suffering with anxiety and depression for many years, my life was very restricted and I struggled with the smallest daily tasks.

I had tried most orthodox treatments without success.
Mel is very thorough with consultation and diagnosis, looking at the overall emotional and physical symptoms. She has been very supportive throughout the treatment and proactive in sharing knowledge about my condition. I have found it empowering to understand my symptoms and their treatment. I always find Mel caring and compassionate – she listens with empathy and is always update with the latest medical research.

Since my treatment of herbal medicine and nutrition, I am living a fulfilled life. I am able to enjoy a good quality of life again. Studying, working part time and participating in hobbies. I have passed my driving test, TEFL qualification, take part in volunteer work and help out with creative workshops. I have almost finished my Level 2 Beauty therapy and I will be progressing to Level3 Holistic therapy next year.

I have also found many other improvements to my health such as a stronger immune system, healthier digestion and better circulation.
Thank you Mel for helping me to get better and stronger.

[icon]leaf[/icon]I have been treated by Mel for hormonal and anxiety problems for several years.

I have found great relief from the treatment and advice she has given to me. My health and well being has greatly improved.

[icon]leaf[/icon]I have consulted Mel twice over the last 3 years for help relieving IBS and joint pain both for periods of 6-8 months.

Her advice, herbal remedies and holistic approach have really helped me lessen the joint pain and reduce the severity of the IBS. Mel has also supported me to change my eating habits so that they are better for my digestion and health by giving me practical realistic tips. During a particularly stressful period Mel also supported me in relaxing through the herbs, supplements and her wise counsel. Finally Mel has always made me feel safe and cared for because of her lovely calm, empathic presence and ability to listen and because she practices what she preaches.
I highly recommend Mel as a Holistic and Herbal Practitioner.

[icon]leaf[/icon]I had Mel recommended to me by my sports masseuse as I suffer from many symptoms that have been labelled as ‘ME’ and ‘fibromyalgia’ .

But the specialists and doctors have always been less than useless…..sometimes actually making me worse with misdiagnosis and medication that’s even added to my symptoms.

At an absolute loss as to what to do I decided to see if Mel could help me. After a really thorough chat and consultation we started with a plan of herbs and diet changes to start my healing.

After 6 months we have made major improvements to my health which I would never have achieved through the conventional methods used by GP’s who just want to mask any problems and write you a prescription after half listening to what you have to say. We now have a huge reduction in symptoms as well as a 2 stone weight loss, we discovered a thyroid problem not addressed by the NHS and have a plan of action to shift the remaining of my symptoms.

I would highly recommend you try Mel if you have health problems you feel are not being helped by your GP, if you’re sick of being fobbed off with tablets and you want to get to the route of your symptoms and get your life back, she’s a great herbalist and a great person too.

[icon]leaf[/icon]I have been seeing Mel on a healing basis for a couple of years now.

As a fifteen year old I started having epilectic fits, just petit mal as they called it and was put on medication and told that I would have to stay on it for the rest of my life, just one tranquillizer a day. Depite the tablets I continued with the fits until the age of twenty-five, the last one being five days after giving birth to my first daughter. I stayed on the medication until I wanted another child at the age of thirty-five. The pills were extremely difficult to come off, but I finally managed it. I havn’t been on any medication since, but wondered although never proven it the fits were hormonal may return with the menopause. This didn’t happen thank goodness, but a couple of years ago I started to get the same feelings as if I was indeed going to have one. This manifests itself with feelings of anxiety and confusion with the idea that you are going to faint, and are very frightening.

I had been having massage treatments from Mel and so because of these feelings I had a consultation with her and told her my medical history. From this I went on to have a combination of reiki and reflexology, plus one of her made up herbal tonics. I have continued with this treatment as I feel the need. It is I feel so much better to think that there is help away from toxic medication which seems to be so readily given out from GP’s who havn’t ever considered you as an individual. Keep healing Mel!

[icon]leaf[/icon]Mel at Namaste has helped my teenage daughter by providing her with both medical and emotional support during a terrible 12 month period while she has been suffering with post viral syndrome.

Her symptoms were fatigue, insomnia, lack of appetite and sensitive skin. Mel went through her medical history and mixed successive “potions” until she found the best solution. As my daughter’s health slowly improved the medicine was altered accordingly.
I am sure that without Mel’s help that my daughter’s situation would have deteriorated further. I would be very happy to recommend her to anyone with health problems.

[icon]leaf[/icon]Being ill for numerous years with Ulcerative Colitis, IBS, Systemic Lupus, ME, Osteoporosis, degenerative bone disease plus other ailments I had endlessly seen various specialists who over the years have helped me to their best ability.

But I felt I needed a different direction of help. So in Sept 2001 I visited Mel and was introduced to Reiki which I have personally found most beneficial. Once Mel had qualified as an herbalist I then went on to taking herbal medicine everyday as well as continuing with Reiki.
My overall view and experience of Mel is that she is a very affable individual, very compassionate, honest and trustworthy. She makes you feel very relaxed, constantly querying, questioning and listening to any of your physical, mental or emotional problems.

Mel never promises miracles but nothing is too much trouble in her determination to pursue treatments that are going to benefit her patients.
Mel appreciates and respects everyone as an individual with their own particular problems and needs. She continuously endeavours to do her very best to improve your overall health. Mel is a true professional and I am extremely grateful for the help and treatment she has given me over the years.

[icon]leaf[/icon]I have found reflexology a help during a long, slow illness which resulted in kidney failure and dialysis.

I felt it slowed down the progression, as shown by my blood results after starting reflexology. Mel now helps me control my blood pressure and relax and I find this a great help coping with my illness.

[icon]leaf[/icon]I have been visiting this wonderful masseuse for approximately 4 years

During that time have been very successfully helped with a number of minor ailments, mainly my lower back and hip. As the years go by (I am in my 60’s) I believe that to have a regular massage definately helps to ward off those aches and pains and maintain a healthy body. (I like to have a back, neck and shoulder massage with some reflexology afterwards).

[icon]leaf[/icon]Mel’s “Skin healing cream” with comfrey has had miraculous results on my severely cracked heels and the very dry skin on my feet.

I have tried many over the counter creams over the years but this is the very best. Thanks Mel. I have been regulary taking one of Mel’s herbal remedies prescribed to help balance my hormones and combat low mood. I have felt a definite improvement with my symptoms and find my consultations with Mel a valuable tool in promoting self awareness.

I suffer from degenerative disc disease and over the past 9 years I have had regular back, neck and shoulder massages from Mel. She is an exellent masseuse and has always been completely professional in her approach. She seems to have a magical touch and has helped me cope with the stiffness and pain.
I attended an Reiki One attunement workshop and found it interesting, thought provoking and spiritually uplifting.
