I am an experienced Medical herbalist and I specialize in herbal medicine for women’s health and hormonal balance.
I have always had a deep interest and passion in women’s health and find targeted herbs to be extremely effective in many hormonal imbalances.
I provide individualized herbal treatment and a functional nutrition approach with support for:
Menstrual issues including, erratic, heavy, painful periods
Pre Menstrual Syndrome (PMS)
Managing Oestrogen dominance
Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)
The Menopausal transition including natural alternatives to hormone replacement treatment (HRT). Symptoms such as anxiety, hot sweats, insomnia, fatigue.
HPA dysregulation ( adrenal fatigue) and chronic stress
Digestive issues and gut dysbiosis
I believe that women’s health in the modern world is increasing being challenged by processed diets, xeno-oestrogens, lifestyle factor, sedentary lifestyles, environmental pollution and chronic stress.
Hormonal imbalance in women in my experience is often a result of these combined factors.
I take a holistic approach and incorporate herbal medicine, functional nutrition and lifestyle factors into my treatment approach.
I believe little positive changes can make a BIG difference over time and I aim to fully support women sustainably to make these changes to reach their health and wellbeing goals… and feel good in the long term!
The Initial Consultation
The initial consultation will last an hour with a review of your health and past medical history including diet, medication and supplements and family history.
After the consultation I will write you a personalized treatment plan with nutritional, supplement and lifestyle advice. I often include hormone healthy recipes ideas to get you inspired!
I will then prescribe a course of herbal medicine which is reviewed every 4 to 8 weeks dependant on presentation. We keep in contact and you are free to email with questions.
I work with various laboratories and can also order adrenal stress tests, hormone panels, thyroid tests, digestive analysis and DNA tests to provide a tailor made and specific treatment and try to get to the root cause of your symptoms.
I also work alongside other practitioners including experienced acupuncturists, osteopaths and body work practitioners and will refer you to them for additional support if I feel you will benefit.
I use a wide variety of herbs, in tincture, capsule, powder and tea form. Many of the herbs I use are known as tonics and adaptogens, herbs that support the body’s resisilence to stress.
These include herbs such as ashwagandha, liquorice, shatavari, schizandra and many many more…
Each prescription is unique to you… no two precriptions are ever the same… I always treat the individual not the condition.
