Testimonial

"I always seemed to be suffering from viral infections and felt run down and tired. Cold sores were also a constant problem and made my life miserable. I was prescribed herbal medicine – a tincture and a course of tablets; after a few weeks I began to get my energy back and now hardly ever get infections or cold sores since taking the herbs.

What can Herbal Medicine treat?

Many health conditions that are usually taken to the GP can be effectively treated by a Medical Herbalist. These include high blood pressure, musculoskeletal conditions such as osteoarthritis; migraine, stress, anxiety and insomnia. Digestive health (gut dysbiosis) and boosting immune resilience are other issues that can be addressed with herbal medicine.

What to expect when you consult a Herbalist?

The first appointment lasts one hour. A detailed medical and lifestyle history is taken; I also check blood pressure and will recommend other tests if I think they are necessary. Treatment includes advice on nutrition and lifestyle; a herbal prescription which is usually a blend of several herbs (tinctures); or it might be dried herbs to make infusions (teas) and tablets. I may also recommend specific vitamin and mineral supplements. I can make up creams, ointments or essential oil blends as part of the herbal prescription. I offer support via phone or email between appointments – free of charge - if required. A follow up appointment is needed 3 weeks after the initial consultation to check on progress. Treatment can last a few months or be ongoing dependent on the complexities of the health condition. An acute illness is usually quicker to treat, a chronic condition may take longer.

Costs

  • First Consultation - new patient (one hour) £85.00
  • Subsequent follow up consultation (half an hour) £55.00
  • The cost of medicine is dependent on the herbs prescribed but tinctures are usually £10 per 100 ml (lasts 7-10 days).

Medicines

The herbal medicines prescribed are usually organic and/or biodynamic tinctures from my Dispensary. The herbal tinctures come from suppliers authorised by the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA).
