Herbal medicine is the oldest form of medicine known and has been used
since earliest times to treat illness and maintain good health.
By using whole plant extracts the full range of a plant’s potential is made available.
Such plant medicines avoid many of the risks associated with the isolated chemical extracts of
synthetic drugs. They support the body’s own healing processes, thus restoring
balance and strengthening the innate ability to maintain vitality & well being.
Modern Medical Herbalists’ training includes much that is similar to
training in conventional medicine without losing sight of holistic
traditions to ensure you receive the best possible treatment.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT?
Your first consultation will take about an hour and a half.
A full medical history will be taken and, where appropriate, a physical examination
including blood pressure.
A prescription will be individually formulated for you along with any dietary and lifestyle advice.
A combination of remedies is usually given in tincture form.
Other remedies: teas, creams, ointments and oils may also be prescribed.
A follow up appointment is usually arranged for two or three weeks
after your initial consultation.
Thereafter, monthly or six weekly consultations may be necessary
to monitor your progress.
Acute conditions generally respond quickly to treatment.
Chronic conditions, which may have taken years to develop, may require treatment for some months.
Once health has been restored this state is encouraged by the inclusion of natural remedies
in day to day living, for example, as herbal teas or foods.
Your medical herbalist is happy to liaise with other healthcare professionals, including your GP
and is competent in assessing when a referral is necessary.
