The Consultation


Your first visit will last about an hour and a half. I prepare a detailed case history of your health, lifestyle and diet. Your blood pressure may be taken along with other non-invasive physical exams as needed. I then plan a course of treatment with you. Follow-up visits to guide your progress are shorter, usually lasting about 30 minutes. I also offer Express appointments for uncomplicated acute conditions. These may last about 15 minutes.

After the consultation, your medicine is individually formulated for you. Unlike the herbal preparations you buy ‘off the shelf,’ my medicines are generally fresher and more potent and bespoke. I often use multiple herbs within a prescription, and source them through trusted, ethical, largely organic suppliers.

Your medicine may take the form of a tincture, tea, capsules or creams, all freshly made in my on-site dispensary. Alcohol-free preparations are also available.
