The Herbalist - Dip PhytoTherapy, MURHP
Herbal Medicine is the oldest form of medicine known to man and is still used by 80% of the world’s population.
Taking a holistic approach to Herbalism means I can combine treatments to also include aromatherapy, reflexology and Reiki.
As a herbalist, I am so lucky to live in the Lake District where I am inspired every day and grow my own herbs to make my own tinctures.
The quality of the herbs I use is important and by growing my own I can control the quality, so you reap the benefits of what I sow.
When you are ill you focus on treating your ailments to make you better. Ideally, we should look at the root cause so we can not only treat your ailments but prevent them from returning and help you to live a healthier and happier lifestyle.
I first started looking at herbal remedies many years ago when my young son had problems with his ears. Doctors would treat his condition, which would then return. When they suggested surgery as a next step, I decided to try alternatives and started doing my own research.
Within a few weeks of making the necessary changes to his diet and taking the correct natural remedies, he was well enough not to need surgery.
I trained as a clinical aromatherapist and this soon prompted me to study Herbal Medicine. I trained with the IRCH in Swansea and loved it. Once qualified I began to practice in Ulverston where I am able to carry out consultations and provide top quality herbal medicines and tinctures.
During an initial consultation we explore past and present illnesses and lifestyle. There are many factors that can affect our health and having a clear picture will help me to prescribe the correct remedies and lifestyle changes that can return you to full vitality.
Consultations don’t have to be face to face, they can be via telephone or video calls such as Zoom.
