The first consultation usually last 1 -1.5 hours and will involve taking a medical history. As a medical herbalist I have trained extensively in clinical and diagnostic skills. I may on occasions take your blood pressure or do a physical examination if you are comfortable with this where this would assist me in your treatment.
How long you see a herbalist for will depend on the complexity of your condition and your health needs.
Cost of herbal medicines is around £8 for a 100ml herbal tincture which will last for about one week, occasionally some herbs may cost more. The average amount people spend is around £24 -£48 on medicines for a 3-6-week period.
I may also prescribe herbal teas, creams/ointments or capsule as part of your treatment depending on your requirements.
Everyone is unique and the time you take herbal medicine for will vary depending on what your treatment requires.
