Herbal Medicine

The development of Western Herbal Medicine can be traced back to Graeco-Roman, Arabic, European and American cultures. Although there is a foundation of traditional use to Western Herbal Medicine, modern use also includes scientific research

Besides Western herbal tradition I use wisdom from Traditional Chinese Medicine and Ayurveda. 

In terms of treatment, I use various preparations made from either whole plants or parts of it, like flowers, roots, barks or leaves. For example herbal medicine can be prescribed in the form of tinctures, decoctions, infusions, capsules, powders, creams, ointments, poultices, eye and ear drops, pessaries, gargles, scalp lotion, inhalation baths and more.

Western herbal medicine focuses on the patient and the cause of their illness rather than the symptoms that they have.  The choice of herbs that a practitioner prescribes is based on detailed information given to the practitioner by the patient and the result of any clinical examination carried out during the consultation.  This allows a bespoke, personalised prescription to be created
