Traditional Herbal Medicine considers that the components of the human body cannot be studied in isolation because each part is dynamic and interdependent. Diagnosis is about determining underlying patterns in the body and how they manifest in symptoms.
Our clinic offers Naturopathic and Chinese herbal medicine which are custom-made for each patient. Your individual constitution and health concerns are the foundation for which your herbal prescription is designed accordingly. That way your individual needs are fulfilled accurately.
The herbs we prescribe come from trusted manufacturers that source only high quality herbs, stringently tested to comply for full shelf-life potency and no substances derived from any endangered species.
Herbs are dispensed as either liquid, tincture, powder, granules or capsule form. Detailed instructions on dosage and frequency will be provided with every herbal prescription so that you find them easy to take.
As herbal formulas are personalised according to your body’s needs, side effects are uncommon.
In the right instances herbal medicine may be used in conjunction with modern pharmaceuticals. However, it is important to inform your practitioner of any medications you are taking so the potential risks can be assessed and you may be advised to take your herbs at a different time of day to other medications.
