Western herbal medicine focuses on you, the individual. Consultations will often take longer than with some other health providers.
The first consultation involves a very thorough review of your health history, which on average takes around 60 minutes. Subsequent consultations vary between 15-20 minutes for simple check-ups to 30-40 minutes for more complex issues.
As I specialise in herbal medicine, the key focus of my prescribing is liquid herbal medicine formulations which are prepared individually and specifically for you. Whilst we may at times use other types of preparations (such as tablets, capsules and powders), the advantage of liquid herbal prescribing is that each formulation I make is unique and tailored specifically for your unique health needs. This level of individualised treatment results in far better outcomes for most patients.
