(4) How long will it take?

This will be very different for different people. Two useful rules of thumb are that the longer you have been struggling with an illness, the longer it will likely take to resolve. Also the older you are the slower the body tends to change and heal.

Thus a 30 year old with a 6 month history of illness may feel well on the path towards health after a few months.

A sixty year old with a similar illness that has been around for 20-30 years may find that the path of creating health is one to be walked gradually over 1 to 2 years.

Obviously, short term, acute conditions such as coughs, colds and flu’s can respond very quickly to herbs. For such things I offer a free drop in clinic where there is no consultation fee.

However, most of my clients come for long term issues related to the heart, skin, anxiety, pulmonary disease, inflammatory diseases, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, chronic pain, digestive problems etc. A number come also for support in health creation, learning how to live more in harmony with their bodies.

I mostly see clients once a month for 1.5 hour sessions, though if someone is really struggling with their health this may be better as two weekly or even weekly sessions. The great thing about working with the herbs is that they support and sustain a process of healing between the sessions.
