Herbal Medicine Consultation
Your consultation begins with an in-depth medical history where we explore what is going on with your health at the moment and why you are suffering these symptoms of bloating, pain, headache, low energy or whatever your personal symptoms are.
We will look at what you are eating, what challenges you may be facing, and anything that has an impact on your health and wellbeing, and we will begin to find ways to help you.
Most importantly we will work together to make sure everything is achievable and does not add to any stress.
As a herbalist I will look at you as a whole person - your physical, emotional, mental and spiritual wellbeing
This will involve looking at such things as:
Diet and nutrition
Challenges you are facing
Sleep and sleep patterns
"It is more important to know what sort
of person has a disease than to know
what sort of disease a person has." Hippocrates
As no two patients are alike, prescriptions are not pre-prepared.
Following your consultation, your medicine is made for your specific needs.
I will make up your individual herbal medicine in my dispensary for you to take away with you, and I will explain how the medicine should be taken. The medicinal plants in your prescription will be chosen to take account of any medications you are currently taking.
Your herbal medicine is usually a mixture of about five or six herbal tinctures (extracts of herbs in a water-alcohol base), but you may also be given herbal tea, capsules, powders or tablets, or an external treatment such as cream, gel, lotion, oil or ointment.
