Maintaining Optimum Health Naturally
What is Herbal Medicine?
Herbal Medicine or Phytotherapy is using plants and natural plant substances to positively increase health. This has been done for over 2000 years and is the primary form of healthcare for about 80% of the world’s population according to the World Health Organisation. Continual research confirms and updates the effectiveness of herbal medicine.
A Medical Herbalist is a trained professional with up-to-date knowledge of how to use herbal medicine to address imbalances in the body that contribute to ill health.
The symptoms you have are simply your body’s way of telling you something needs to change.
Because everything in the body is linked, a medical herbalist will look at what is happening in each body system to identify the problem which has been causing your health issues. Once this is addressed, the symptoms should lessen.
Skin problems: eczema, acne, skin infections Stress related conditions: anxiety, insomnia Digestive disorders: ulcerative colitis, colic, bloating, indigestion, constipation, irritable bowel syndrome Heart / circulatory problems: abnormal blood pressure, high cholesterol levels Urinary and men's health problems: cystitis, prostate problems Gynaecological conditions: premenstrual symptoms, menstrual irregularities, menopausal problems, fertility issues Allergic responses: hay fever, asthma Infections: tonsillitis, influenza, coughs, colds, bronchitis Arthritis, Gout, Low energy, Weight issues, Headaches Cancer
I am truly grateful for my consultations with you. Your genuine interest in my health and your wealth of knowledge regarding herbal remedies were a great comfort and encouragement to me. I struggled with fatigue, lethargy, depression, brain fog and I have been on medication for thyroid issues for about 18 months. After a few months with you, my lab tests showed a TSH virtually normal, and I simply felt so much better! I could get up in the morning, face the new day with thankful anticipation and enjoy meeting with people again. Thank you so much, Maree.
Bloating and stomach discomfort
What I liked most about having a consult was the personalised advice. The benefits I am enjoying are more energy, no more bloating or stomach discomfort, my sluggishness has gone. Also my tension and tearfulness has gone...feel like my body is back in hormonal balance!!! I would recommend people see you because your treatments are natural and healthy AND they work. (Plus you know your stuff!! :-)
I had been struggling for a year with a blood disorder (low platelets), low immunity and anxiety. I was increasingly frustrated with the traditional medical approach. I found Maree helpful and knowledgeable with regards to treating my blood disorder. She had plenty of achievable diet changes that I could make, like increasing kale and beetroot that would specifically help my situation. Although it is early days, I have seen significant improvement with my blood results and have also avoided the usual winter bugs so far. I am very grateful.
A few years ago I began to experience headaches around the time of my period. My only solution was to bear with them or take paracetamol, but I thought surely there was a reason for them and if I could find out what was causing them, I might be able to prevent them rather than just treat the symptom. Coming to Maree meant gaining a better understanding of what my body needs in terms of food and exercise and what is not helpful to be putting in to it. Her herbal tincture along with her knowledge and guidance has meant that I no longer have to endure the headaches every month. It has not been a quick fix, it’s been a process, but sometimes good things take time. I am glad to have got to the root of the issue and learnt how to take care better of myself too.
Thank you for your help- it has been really good. When I came to see you my main health issue was chronic fatigue. Feeling groggy a lot of the day. I have improved over time although not entirely better. Found nutrition reminders very helpful so have made a few diet changes and love the herb tea. Knowing I was putting good stuff into my body is good.
The biggest issue that was bothering me when I went to see you was having to take the Dr’s diuretics and they were causing me a lot of grief, with cramps and just feeling grotty even tho I did not take them daily as Dr wanted me to. The mixture you made plus the celery daily, has kept me really balanced and almost no cramp, and my weight has remained very stable. That is always a guide for me that I need to get some fluid off.
I came to see Maree with tinea which was very annoying and I also had trouble getting back to sleep when I woke in the night. The formula you gave me has got rid of the tinea and I am now getting back to sleep with the drops. I am so pleased
