The Herbal Consultation

The first consultation will usually last up to an hour in order to gain a clear understanding of your complete state of health. You will be asked about diet and lifestyle, previous medical history as well as current health problems, including details of any medications you are taking.

A treatment plan will then be agreed with you. Your medicine will be made up from a mixture of single herbs dispensed in the form of an alcohol based liquid called a tincture. Alternatively you may be given dried herbs to drink as a tea, or oils, creams or a combination of the above. Follow up phone calls or visits will be made to assess your progress and to adjust the treatment if necessary. An acute illness might be treated in a week or two. A chronic complaint is likely to take longer.
