Herbal medicine has a long and varied history, from all over the globe (tcm, ayurveda, western herbal medicine). The main thing they have in common is that they use the whole parts of the plant rather than isolating a chemical constituent. This results in a natural balanced medicine, easily absorbed and much less likely to cause side effects. Herbs in general work on balancing the whole body rather than just a symptom.
A blend of herbs is mixed to deliver the balance your body needs.
Herbal medicine is used in my clinic as an integrative medicine, this means it can work well on it's own or as an adjunct to allopathic medicine and other therapies.
A herbal consultation takes around 1 1/2 hours to complete.
Most chronic health issues will need a 3 or 6 month plan for the best results. This Is €300 for the basic 6 month plan. (Initial consult & 4 follow ups) and €400 for the 3 month program which is a weekly consult (13 consultations in total over a 3 month period)
This can include:
Bring with you a list of any medication you are taking or have been taking.
I will always look for the root cause of the issue/s that arise rather than any specific symptom, if the root cause is dealt with the symptom will usually be relieved.
A herbal formula will then be made up for you individually at the end of the consultation.
Follow up's are initially at 1 monthly intervals and the intervals may lengthen as time goes on.
