The initial consultation will take one to one and a half hours. You will bring along a list of any medications or supplements that you are currently taking and any recent medical/blood test results.
People are often surprised at the opportunity they are given in a consultation to discuss in depth their physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing.
We will discuss in detail the reasons for your appointment. Then we will look in detail at your health history, lifestyle, general diet, emotions, sleep patterns, family health history, and all the various bodily systems.
The detailed questioning in your initial consultation will enable me to determine your constitution, to understand your health concerns and evaluate your total health.
I use Ayurvedic diagnostic tools, such as tongue and pulse examination, plus diagnostics your GP would use, such as blood pressure measurement. I may also use a special iridology torch to examine your iris.
After the consultation I will reflect upon what we have discussed to connect all of the dots and I may also carry out extra research so that I can determine the best approach to target the underlying causes. I will also choose the correct herbs for your individual needs and blend a bespoke herbal prescription. You will receive written wellness advice on diet, lifestyle (which includes things such as sleep quality, stress reduction, exercise, breathing exercises, self massage) and any necessary referrals to specialists or recommendations of other therapies that would be beneficial to you.
Your bespoke herbal prescription will be prepared personally by me in my dispensary and sent to you by post. This prescription will last for 4 weeks.
After 4 weeks I recommend a follow-up appointment to review your progress, how you are responding to the herbal medicine and to see if any further changes need to be made. This appointment will last 30 to 45 minutes.
All herbs are sourced from sustainable sources and are of the highest quality. All herbal medicines are plant based, do not contain any animal products and have not been involved in animal testing.
Herbal medicines can be prescribed in tincture, powder, teas and creams. The best method for you will be discussed during your consultation.
Appointments are available in Liverpool Street, Islington and Winchmore Hill.. The initial consultation must be face to face but follow ups can be held online.
I would appreciate 24 hours notice prior to your appointment to inform me if you would like to cancel or reschedule. Failure to do so may mean I have to charge the full price.
