Before your consultation starts, you will receive a detailed questionnaire that we will need during the consultation in order to focus on specific health issues that you would like to solve.
We will need to discuss your health history in detail in order to understand the causes which can be not directly related to an imbalance in a particular system of the body.
The treatment plan will include both herbal medicine and nutritional therapy. If this can help the treatment, you will be offered bespoke herbal remedies and also recommendations about nutritional supplements. Bespoke herbal remedies and nutritional supplements are not included in your consultation fee.
You may need an additional consultation, a follow up after your first consultation. At a follow-up we can discuss how your treatment is going and then we will make changes in accordance with how the whole situation is changing.

In general, herbal medicine is the most ancient method of treatment and has been and is used by all cultures on all continents. Many pharmaceutical drugs are and were primary made of plants. So known Aspirin is an effective medication but has unpleasant side effects.
As an example a medicinal plant from which Aspirin was primary derived, beautiful tree of Willow in a form of medicinal remedy has softer action and doesn’t produce similar to Aspirin side effects. It doesn’t mean that pharmaceutical drugs can be replaced by herbal medicine but herbal medicine does definitely have a niche and can be used along many allopathic (pharmaceutical) treatment plans or prescribed by qualified medical herbalists by its own.
Many people use herbs and nutritional supplements and self-prescribe but it is better to ask for an opinion of professional herbalist or nutritional therapist because we never receive our knowledge and degrees over a week or a month or even over a year.
First consultation fee is 70 pounds over Skype or Zoom and a follow-up is 50 pounds.
