Avalon Herbal Medicine
BSc. Hons. Medical Herbalism MNIMH
The green, vivacious medicine of herbs carries physiologically active constituents as well as the deep energy of the land.
My expertise as a herbal practitioner and dedicated healer enable me to offer you an unique pathway to your good health.
I take any emotional, social, chemical and environmental stressors that may impact the quality of your life into account, as well as making a medical diagnosis upon which I base my recommendations and prescription.
Following a comprehensive consultation, I create a synergistic herbal medicine specific for each of my patients.
Western Herbal Medicine can manage and support a wide range of health concerns including digestive, respiratory and joint problems, hormone imbalances, skin complaints and allergies.
I am especially interested in supporting people with stress, anxiety, insomnia and fatigue and am committed to supporting the wellbeing of the local community.
My onsite dispensary holds a wide palette of sustainable, quality herbs, many grown in my dedicated medicinal herb garden and then prepared in my onsite dispensary. I will actively engage you in the creation of your bespoke herbal medicine.
My practice is informed by current evidence and grounded in the holistic approach of traditional Western Herbalism. I am happy to work as part of your healthcare team.
I offer nutritional advice where appropriate and have access to a wide variety of quality nutritional supplements at affordable prices.
A first consultation will take around 60 minutes depending on the complexity of your case. A detailed history of your concerns will be taken along with a screen of your general health, diet and lifestyle. Dietary and lifestyle advice is also available and is key to your ongoing health. Follow up appointments take up to 30 minutes and I offer an online service for this.
In discussion with you, I'll then prepare herbal tinctures, teas, capsules or creams specific for your circumstances and needs from my onsite dispensary, these can then be collected at your convenience or posted out to you.
Traditional Western Herbalism combines the latest scientific research with traditional knowledge. I create synergistic and unique blends of carefully considered herbs for each of my patients taking into account the diagnosis and your needs in relationship to the energies and constituents of each herb.
