The first appointment with your Medical Herbalist will find out about your current health complaint, take a detailed medical history and perform any necessary diagnostic examinations before suggesting a treatment. The consultation will includea full discussion on all aspects of health. It is helpful if the patient can bring to a consultation any information relating to their condition, including information about any pharmaceutical drugs or food supplements that they may be taking.
At the end of the consultation, a tailor-made healthcare plan will be drawn up. This can include herbal medicines (in alcoholic tincture, tea, capsule or cream form), nutritional supplements, diet and lifestyle recommendations. After this there may be a need for a follow up consultation, to check on progress and to make any necessaryadjustments to the healthcare plan.
