Do you suffer from autonomic disorder, digestive issues or chronic fatigue?
Do you struggle to cope with anxiety, low moods, insomnia, or chronic fatigue?
Do you suffer from either a chronic or acute pain?
I CAN HELP
because Herbal Medicine can address the issues at the core: nutritional deficiencies and chemical imbalances.
Herbs modulate and change how the internal organs work, improving their collaboration. They are beneficial to a variety of health issues, such as those related to digestion, diabetes type 2, chronic fatigue, immunity, mental issues, allergies, fertility, as well as pain and body aches.
Herbs can also ease fibromyalgia and inflammatory diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis.
I am a fully qualified and insured Chinese Medicine Herbalist.
The questions will relate to how the problem started, the signs and symptoms, your life-style and diet, and your general health. Your medications and allergies will be noted as well.
I will inspect your tongue and ears, and I will check the pulse in multiple positions on the wrists. If you agree, I will take photos of the tongue and the ears.
If relevant, your diet and your state of stress will be discussed to plan how you can support yourself in the process of healing.
At the end of the consultation, I will explain what I think has happened to bring disharmony to your health.
After about two weeks you will have a 30min follow-up consultation to discuss your progress and adjust the herbs, if needed.
The herbs will need to be taken daily, initially for two weeks. We will make an evaluation at about 2-week time and I will decide how to update the herbal approach.
Things usually improve within the first week and depending on the changes in the body, I may need to either reduce some of the herbs or add new ones. I may also need to prescribe new herbs.
A treatment, depending on the issue, will usually take 1-3 months. There are however cases that are resolved within 2-4 weeks , as well as others that need 6 months.
It simply depends on the severity of the problem, how long it has been affecting you, how many organs are involved, and so on.
Herbs = Herbal Extracts
Herbs offer a safe and effective therapy, used to awaken the body’s natural processes to ease pain or encourage healing. The daily dosage of raw herbs would be anywhere from 80g to 120g per day, because we need them to have a medicinal value.
A regular tea bag weights 1.5-2g. The daily amount of herbs to be taken for a decoction is equivalent to the amount of tea coming from 48 to 80 tea bags, just to give you an idea.
The herbs should be cooked for 30min at least. It is quite laborious to prepare such an herbal infusion and drink it 3 times a day when we are busy and on move. Because of convenience we offer herbal extracts where each gram of the extract is equivalent to 7-9g of raw herbs.
These herbal extracts are produced in a highly controlled pharmaceutical process in the SunTen Pharmaceuticals. This company has been delivering herbs for 50 years to the UK.
The herbal extract is soluble in water, so it is easy to take. The downside is that these herbal infusions are usually not tasty. However, my 5-year old patients can drink them, so I am sure anybody can, if they are willing to.
Response to Treatment
The response to treatment varies, however progress is often experienced within the first week. It usually takes 1-3 months to resolve an issue, but may also take longer such as 6 months.
The use of a holistic approach enables a treatment of the whole person. Most people find unexpected benefits above and beyond their initial reason for seeking treatment. Examples include better sleep, improved mental clarity, improved energy, inner balance and the sense of well-being.
