Consultation Information

The first consultation will last for approximately 60-90 minutes. A detailed case history is taken to identify your possible medical condition and help identify its cause.

A general health and blood pressure check will then be carried out; as will other physical examinations where required.

Details of any previous and present medical conditions and medications should be brought with you, as these will be taken into account before a prescription is dispensed. It's possible to take herbal medicine alongside orthodox treatment, in this case the herbalist may wish to refer to your GP.

The remedies prescribed may be in the form of a tincture (plant constituents extracted in alcohol or glycerol), herbal teas, oils, creams and ointments.

Each patient is treated as an individual and a unique prescription will be prepared to treat your specific condition and symptoms. Dietary and lifestyle advice, to help the condition, may also be recommended.

Progress will be monitored at follow up appointments where the prescription will be further tailored as your body responds to natural therapy.
