Herbal medicine, also known as Phytotherapy, uses plant based remedies to regulate the body’s normal functions.
Following a detailed consultation your herbalist will select a number of remedies to make up an individualised medicine. This is combined with nutritional and lifestyle advice to form an ongoing treatment plan, aiming to bring you back to optimum health.
A range of conditions are seen in clinic such as IBS, Migraines, Arthritis, Menstrual Problems, Anxiety, Fertility Issues, Urinary Tract Infections, Eczema, Respiratory Infections, Insomnia and many others. Often people present with multiple symptoms and the holistic approach of Herbal Medicine is well suited to these cases.
Herbal medicine can be used alongside orthodox treatments, and we advise you to seek advice from your GP if you believe you are suffering from one of the above conditions.
Herbal medicines may be given as tinctures, tea, capsule, powder or tablet. Sometimes creams or lotions are used for topical application. The remedies do not use animal products and can be alcohol free.

I saw Achara for a herbal consultation. I have always suffered from hay fever year in year out since I was a child. I decided to try something effective that wasn't steroid based. Achara was great. She went through historical and current conditions so she could tailor a herbal mix to help my body cope in spring. So far its working and I will go back to her in winter as prone to catching colds as well.
