The first consultation lasts about an hour and involves a detailed case history covering the the problem you have come with and all other aspects of your health, including past medical history, diet, lifestyle and current medication. Blood pressure and pulse will always be taken and other clinical examinations may be performed if appropriate.
A treatment plan will then be discussed and, if necessary, herbal medicines will be prescribed in the form of tinctures, teas, capsules or creams. All advice and treatment is carefully considered and tailored to meet your individual needs. Length of treatment varies – good results can sometimes be achieved in as little as two weeks but chronic conditions may take many months.
Follow-up consultations last approximately 30 minutes. Your first follow-up consultation will usually be two weeks after your visit to check your progress and make any necessary tweaks to your prescription to ensure it is at its most effective. Subsequent follow-ups are arranged at 4-6 week intervals depending on the condition.
All consultations are strictly confidential.
