My First Love….
Herbal Medicine is the oldest form of medicine and is used widely today as a safe and effective natural medicine. It works with the body’s natural healing abilities to regain balance and restore vitality and overall function.
Remedies are made from whole plant extracts, specific to the individual patient’s needs. Whether you seek help with:
- Chronic conditions e.g. IBS, eczema or mild depression
- Acute conditions e.g. colds, debilitated immune system
- Menstrual Cycle, Fertility and Menopause.
- Supporting the health and wellbeing of the whole family,
herbal medicine rarely causes side effects, offers a person centred approach and all treatment plans are bespoke.
Your Initial Consultation (90 minutes) ~ £80
In your first consultation we will spend up to 90 minutes together, during this time I will take a detailed case history. We will also have an in depth discussion regarding your presenting complaints. In addition, your overall state of health and wellbeing, previous medical history, current medication, diet, lifestyle and social and emotional aspects of your life will be explored. Your blood pressure and pulse may be taken and other diagnostic procedures may be included if relevant. Some time will be spent towards the end of your consultation discussing the proposed prescription to ensure you understand and agree with the direction it will take. I will then make your medicine and you can take it away with you on the day.
Your Follow up Consultation (45 minutes) ~ £50
Your first follow up consultation will take place 3 weeks after you receive your prescription, subsequent consultations will occur every 3-4 weeks, occurring less frequently as more progress is made. The prescription may be altered in this time to ensure it is still specific and of greatest benefit to you.
Herbal Medicines are usually prescribed in the form of a tincture. Which starts from £8.50/week of medicine which works out at £34/month . If you require your medicine to be posted to you there is a £5 postage and packaging fee and any repeat prescriptions dispensed without a consultation will incur an additional £8 dispensing fee.
