WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM HERBAL MEDICINE?
People of all ages can benefit from herbal medicine. those already receiving treatment from their doctor may also be helpwed, and are prescribed only herbs which do not adversley interact with other medication.
A first consultation lasts for about 1 hour, Lynn takes a detailed case history, covering not only your present problems, but also wider medical history, present medication, lifestyle, diet and social circumstances. A blood pressure check and other examinations are carried out where relevant.
A management plan is discussed and a prescription made up as necessary.
A prescription may be a tincture (a blend of herbal extracts in an alcohol/water base) or a tea. Capsules and tablets are also sometimes used. For external use, creams, lotions or oils may be prescribed.
No two people are alike, even if they appear to be suffering similar symptoms, so no two prescriptions are exactly the same.
Follow-up consultations are of shorter duration, and usually every two to three weeks. Adjustments may be made to the medication during this time to ensure it is at its most effective.
For further information contact Lynn and she will gladly answer any questions and if required will post you her practice leaflet.
