An initial consultation is 1-1.5 hours and is an opportunity for you to tell me all about your current symptoms, past medical history and your family history. I will need to know details about your general lifestyle habits, your diet and your emotional wellbeing too. I can take photos of your eyes in order to make an iridological assessment, and a quick look at your tongue can also give more clues as to what is going on.
Treatment usually involves prescription of a tincture-based herbal formula. This will be your own personal blend. Dosage is usually 1 tsp(5ml) 2-3 times a day. Some herbs can also be used as teas or in capsules.
We will also discuss any potential changes to your diet and lifestyle which would be of benefit. I will always aim to find a positive way forward which you feel can be realistically achieved.
Follow up appointments are usually at monthly intervals and give us a chance to discuss your progress. If we feel that further ongoing treatment is required, your herbal formula can be adjusted if necessary.
Home visits and Skype/Facetime appointments can be arranged where necessary/appropriate.
Feel free to contact me by email if you have any questions before making an appointment.
