What is Herbal Medicine?
Herbal Medicine is the use of medicinal plants to treat disease, and to restore and maintain health. Herbs can help restore the correct functioning, strength and balance of all the body’s systems where they have become weakened. When used correctly, plant medicines are an extremely safe way to restore health from side effects.
How we work with Herbal Medicine
The number of sessions required varies depending on the client’s requirements. During the first consultation we look at the complete history of an individual’s health and an assessment is made as to how we may help; initial perceptions on how long treatment may take, and how successful we can expect to be will be discussed. A prescription of herbs will be developed for the client’s individual presentation. This usually lasts for 1 hour.
Follow up consultations last up to an hour. As the body heals its needs will change and we develop and alter the prescription to ensure we are working together in the right way, to suit your changing needs at all times. The frequency of appointments varies but the usual pattern is 2 weeks after the first consultation, then 4 weeks, then 6 weeks, then if required it will extend up to as much as 3 months between appointments.
