Frequently asked questions
What can Herbal Medicine do for me?
Depending on the issue(s), herbal medicine will work with the body to be the best it can be. When dealing with one health problem, many others may surface and can be dealt with at the same time.
Why Herbal Medicine?
Herbal medicine is natural medicine, and it works with the whole ‘body’ (physical, mental, emotional and spiritual).
Herbal medicine also supports a lifestyle of self-responsibility and commonsense.
What happens during a consultation?
- A lengthy conversation to discover and uncover a life-health story.
- Supporting diagnosis by a study of the iris (i.e. Iridology).
- Assessment, recommendations and making up of Herbal Tonic.
Where do the herbs come from and are they safe?
Within my practice, I only use Australian suppliers of Herbal Medicines that have TGA (Therapeutic Goods Act) approval. The herbs are sourced worldwide from approved suppliers.
Are the herbal tonics prepared individually by you?
Yes, all herbal medicines I use within my practice, are prepared by me personally. I only use Australian suppliers of Herbal Medicines that have TGA (Therapeutic Goods Act) approval. The herbs are sourced worldwide from approved suppliers.
Are you a Registered Practitioner?
Yes, I am a registered member with ATMS (Australian Traditional Medical Association).
How long do consultations take?
The initial consultation usually lasts approximately an hour and a half and subsequent visits are usually an hour in length.
How long between visits?
Usually there is a six week gap from the initial consultation to the follow-up visit. A period of six weeks is the required amount of time to get the maximum impact from the herbal mix.
If I am taking prescribed pharmaceuticals, can I take herbal tonics safely?
Your consultation and any advice given will take into account any medical condition you disclose and the medication that has been prescribed by your doctor, with information about its possible interactions.
