Herbalism

The practice of using plants as medicine.

Why?

Plants are healthy foods for our bodies; full of nourishment and vitality. A diet rich in fresh plant material can provide us with the resources we need for optimal health.

Every civilisation's medical system has evolved using plants as medicines. Modern day herbal medicine combines the wisdom of our ancestors with scientific knowledge and understanding of health and disease, providing an integrative system of medicine which works in harmony with the body to facilitate health and well being. 

How?

During your first consultation your herbalist will build a picture of you and your health. There will be time to discuss the nature, onset and progression of your complaint, as well as any investigations you may have had. A detailed case history including past medical history, family history, diet, lifestyle and any other issues that may be a factor will be gathered so that a full assessment of you and your condition, focusing on the root causes, can be made. 

Herbs are then prescribed on a case by case basis and your tailor made blend will be dispensed either whilst you wait, or the following day.
