What to Expect During your first visit to a Medical Herbalist
Your first visit will take approximately 1½ hours. Current concerns, medications, supplements, past medical history, family history and general health will be discussed in order to establish a holistic picture.
You may be requested to keep a diet diary before the first visit or as part of on-going treatment.
Blood pressure, pulse, urinalysis and other applicable non-invasive examinations may be performed.
Together we will determine a unique treatment plan suited to your goals and needs. The plan is likely to include dietary, nutritional and lifestyle recommendations in addition to herbal treatment.
Herbal treatment involves a custom-made blend of herbs dispensed on site in the form of a tincture, tea, cream and/or salve.
At all times, the patient is free to choose whether or not to follow any or all of the recommendations. Any concerns should be discussed with the medical herbalist.
