What are the benefits of Herbal Medicine?

A herbalist is an alternative health practitioner that uses medicines made from plants to address health concerns.
• Herbalists have a deep and thorough training of the herbs they work with.
• The herbalist uses a holistic approach to search out the underlying cause of the problem and treat the cause rather than the symptoms. Herbal remedies are often combined with diet and lifestyle changes.

About Deborah

The reason I got into Herbal medicine was firstly it helped in conceiving my children, when all the doctors, told me it was not possible, I now have two full-grown children, delivered naturally, secondly, I had several health concerns, not one ever addressed the reason just the symptom, I found this very frustrating.  I also have a passion for autoimmune disease, chronic pain, fertility issues and skin problems, having experienced these all in my life, and found natural health the only thing to get alleviate and control symptoms.

My Approach

My Approach is to listen to you, about your life, stress, previous illness, and then working with you current medical team, prescribe a tailor-made prescription for you.

My Process

After a 1:1 consult, I will research, any interactions with your current medictions, and allergies, then prescribe a herbal formual for you or tablets if you prefer. 

Unique Framework

What is unique about my work, is that a doctors gives maybe 10 mins and treats the symptoms, I will give you 45 mins to 1.5 hours and treat the reason as well as the symptom.

 But What About After?

How to Maintain Your Results

Drink Plenty of Water

One of the bodies biggest and easiest problems to solve is lack of hydration the human body required at least 2 litres of water per day, this doesn’t include coffee or any other dehyrating liquids.  

 

  Herbal Medications

Herbal medications can be hard to swallow as they are quite bitter, I personally have found the easiest way to take them, is a shot (either 7.5 mls or 5 mls whatever your prescription is), and then rapidly followed by either a pineapple, apple or orange juice, some people prefer to mix them into a beverage as long as it is cold that should be no problem, if you not sure email me and I will assist.

What is the difference between Herbalist & Naturopath?

• Herbalists work exclusively with plant base medicine, their training is focused and dedicated to the healing properties of plants. Herbalists often can make their own medicines, so accurate information about sourcing and quality is readily available. Herbalists are THE experts on plant medicine.
• Naturopaths study many modes of healing including nutrition, health psychology, iridology, flower essence and botanical medicine. A naturopath would be considered more of a generalist in all these areas of holistic healing rather than a specialist.
