We offer herbal medicine consultations from Sarah Atkinson MNIMH Dip. Phyt. Medical Herbalist.
Herbal Medicine is the use of plant remedies in the treatment of disease. It is the oldest form of medicine known. Our Ancestors using trial and error and their own intuitive knowledge found the most effective local plants to heal their illnesses. Now with the advancement of science enabling us to identify the chemical constituents within these plants, we can better understand their healing powers.
Herbalism, in this country, is now classed as an 'alternative' or 'complementary' discipline but it is still the most widely practiced form of medicine worldwide with over 80% of the world’s population relying on herbs for health.
First consultation: £50
Subsequent consultations: £35

I've been a practicing medical herbalist for over twenty years. The idea for the Medicine Garden has gradually germinated over this time.
During the process I've found that the emphasis of my consultation has changed, from focusing totally on the herbs to looking very much at what people eat and drink. This, combined with listening to peoples life stories has made my approach to dis-ease much more holistic, which benefits my patients by giving them more control over their health.
