Your initial consultation
A detailed case history will be taken in the initial consultation (usually 60-90 minutes) including current symptoms, family medical history, lifestyle, diet and a review of all systems of the body through targeted questions.
An examination of your eyes (iridology), tongue and pulses will be carried out. All of this information will be used to create a bespoke herbal remedy for you and may include lifestyle, dietary and naturopathic advice.
