What to expect:
Herbal medicine is a very powerful form of treatment and has a risk of side effects, therefore it should only be prescribed by a fully qualified Herbalist. Janine Gerhardt has been qualified and practising for our 12 years having attained a degree in Herbal Medicine.
During a consultation a full history is taken. This includes past and present history and medications, nutritional status and lifestyle, sleep, general well-being, including emotional and mental health, plus other associated factors. Using this information Janine will create a bespoke prescription to treat the underlying cause of your complaint.
Herbal treatments involve a holistic health approach that focuses on the individual and aims to stimulate and strengthen the body’s innate healing abilities. Herbal medicine is a complementary healthcare system where no two herbal prescriptions are the same.
Medicinal plant extracts are specifically prescribed for the individual, in order to treat the symptoms as well as the underlying cause of disease.
Herbal medicine has something to offer during all stages of life, from babies to the very elderly. Although our needs vary throughout life, the herbalist approach is always to work in harmony with the whole body.
