Herbal and Nutritional Medicine
Sarah Firnberg BA(hons), BSc CPP MNIMH Medical Herbalist and Nutritional Therapist
If you have low energy, low mood, unbalanced hormones or any of the number of symptoms associated with modern chronic disease.
If you want to speak to a highly qualified and experienced practitioner, who has an understanding of the orthodox medical sciences, but prefers a style which addresses the underlying causes of disease, using natural botanical medicine.
Then give me a call. I am always happy to discuss whether Nutrition and Herbal Medicine is the best option for you.
Your body is fantastically good at healing itself if only as you give it the right support. Whereas most pharmaceutical drugs inhibit natural processes, herbal medicine and nutrition promote them and are often able to bring you back to a state of vitality and balance.
"I am fascinated by the complexity of disease and in awe of the wealth of natural healing resources we can call upon"
There's a lot more to herbalism than herbs . . . .
Why visit a herbalist?
♣ Western Medical Herbalism, administered by qualified practitioners, is really safe and effective, with rare side-effects. It may be taken alongside orthodox drugs, or used as a valuable alternative.
♣ There is more to herbalism than herbs alone. Medical Herbalism is a holistic therapy, which means that not only will the herbalist consider you as a whole person, exploring every angle of your health, but also, herbalists are qualified to advise on other aspects of your treatment, such as nutrition (in fact this is an important aspect of treatment) and stress relief.
♣ Herbal medicine can often reduce your need of orthodox drugs and thus reduce harmful side-effects.
♣ By exploring and treating the underlying causes of disease, Medical herbalists will not only reduce your symptoms, but they can help also you overcome, or gain long term improvement, for your condition.
♣ Herbalists are trained to degree level in the orthodox medical sciences. They are happy to treat any condition you would take to your GP, and they are trained to refer you on for further investigation where necessary.
♣ Herbalists work holistically, so every aspect of your health will be taken into account, including your nutritional status and lifestyle.
♣ You will be really listened to and treatment will be tailored specifically to your personal needs.
♣ Herbalists work with, rather than against the body, so your body's natural healing mechanisms will be strengthened and supported.
♣ In the hands of a professional Western Medical Herbalist, herbs are extremely safe and reliable. Only herbs of the highest quality are used and these are constantly monitored for consistency and purity.
Your first appointment will last about one hour. During this time, I will take a thorough case history from you, exploring your condition, your overall health and your diet and lifestyle. I usually like to see patients again about two weeks after their first appointment, however, after that, depending on the condition, I see patients once every 4 to 6 weeks until we feel this is no longer necessary.
First appointment: £65
Follow up appointments: £35
Herbal medicine from £7 per week.
To Make an appointment, please call: 0121 242 3425 or e-mail me. I am always happy to discuss whether herbal medicine would be suitable for you, although I can't give medical advice without seeing you.
