Why bother with herbal medicine at all…..?

How many times have you sat in the GPs consultation room and thought:

“are you actually listening to me? “

or “why haven`t you examined me?”

or ” how more minutes have I got before you turf me out?”  

That is if you are able to get an appointment at all of course. I have worked within the NHS for many years and I understand that it is stretched to it`s limits – it is literally bursting at the seams. There is no denying that it has its place in healthcare. however there is an argument for saving the resources for those suffering with life threatening conditions.

But you may question – why should I pay to see a herbalist when I can see a GP for free?

In today s fast paced stressful world is there really time to be bothering with bottles of tinctures or herbal teas?

We`ve all heard  the holistic mantra, lets treat the entire person not just the disease but is there actually any merit to it?

If you don`t think everything is connected then stop reading and stick your head back in the sand and hope!

Is it time to start investing in your health?

The short answer is YES – the symptoms across are an indication that something is missing within your health care.

anxiety, acne, depression, menopause, period pain, infertility, insomnia, weight loss, stress, adrenal fatigue, eczema, chilblains, asthma, allergies, colic, headaches, hot flushes, hypothyroid, high cholesterol, diabetes, prostate enlargement, arthritis, sciatica, IBS, cramps, coughs, colds, cystitis, PCOS

Whether this has something to do with your diet, or your stress levels, or lack of fitness, or genetics, or environment; it is my role to delve into your lifestyle choices and coach you on optimal self care. Of course added to this I will be prescribing the herbs necessary to affect this change and aiding your body to heal itself.

This list of ailments  are some of the conditions which have been presented to me over the years…… If you can recognise yourself in any of these conditions and would like some help – contact me for more information.

Herbal medicine can be taken in a variety of different ways. This video shows me preparing powdered herbs of psyllium husk, slippery elm and turmeric. These herbs when mixed into a 'gloop' are used to treat digestive issues such as persistent diarrhoea, pain and bloating. This could be from IBS (irritable bowel syndrome), collitis, ulcerative collitis, crohn's disease or chronic inflammation of the digestive tract. These herbs soothe, calm and coat the digestive tract and reduce synptoms. In conjunction with other herbs and support from a practitioner digestive symptoms can be totally resolved. If you are having digestive issues I can help. Get in touch via my website or email: to book an appointment #glasgowherbalist #herbalmedicine #ibs #digestion #plantbased #medicine #bowels

Volunteering to do a presentation on de-stressing is the exact opposite of how I'd advise to reduce stress levels!
I'm sure it ll be fun though.
