The herbal consultation
Medical herbalists are trained in the medical sciences. The herbal consultation is much like a visit to your GP but you are afforded more time and a more holistic approach is taken. We are interested in your physical, mental and emotional wellbeing so that a rounded health plan is reached that is tailored to your individual needs. The herbalist will talk to you, in confidence, about your medical history and a physical examination is performed when appropriate. Any other medication or treatment you are receiving will be given due consideration and when herbal treatment is not appropriate a referral to another healthcare professional will be discussed.
