Consultations & Herbal Treatment
The initial consultation costs £45 and takes approximately 60 minutes. During this time we will discuss your past and present health, the condition you would like help with, your diet and lifestyle. All this will enable me to build up a good picture of how your body is functioning and the best way to promote health and healing. The consultation will also include a physical examination when appropriate, such as taking blood pressure, examining the abdomen or listening to your lungs.
Follow-up consultations will last approximately 30 minutes and cost £25.
There is a 50% cancellation fee if appointments are cancelled or changed less than 24 hours before.
This varies from patient to patient, but usually consists of a herbal tincture and/or tea and a cream or ointment if appropriate.
Herbal tinctures cost £8/week and teas cost £4/week. You may also be given diet and lifestyle advice.
The first follow-up treatment will be scheduled 2 weeks after the initial consultation to make sure everything is going well and that the herbs are right for you. Subsequent consultations will occur every 4 to 6 weeks and adjustments may be made to the herbal mix to keep up with any changes in your health. How long the treatment lasts depends on the type of problem, but as a general rule, the longer you have had it, the longer it will take to treat.
Herbs rarely have any side effects and in most situations, they can be used instead of or alongside orthodox medicine.
“Whence flow spontaneously the genuine virtues of medicines, diffused universally over the face of the whole earth, where nothing grows in vain”
