When choosing to consult with a Medical Herbalist you get the chance to work out what may be the root cause of your symptoms. We help you to determine your warning signs, triggers, diet and lifestyle pitfalls. We then create you a personalised treatment plan, by teaching you what herbs, diet and nutritional supplements are best suited to your ailments and general constitution. We ask you to make simple dietary changes in order to get the nutrients you need from your diet. Prevention is our ultimate aim.
Holistic Consultations take between 60-90 minutes initially. Follow ups last between 15 to 45 minutes, usually less as things improve. Treatment lasts as long as you need and depends on the type of condition and your ultimate goals, but as holistic practitioners we believe that at least 3-4 appointments are necessary to get you back on track and sometimes more. Our clients become long term so you can come back at any time and pick back up from where you left off or be reminded about what to do.
What to bring – In order to help you we need to know the the results of any recent blood test results. Call your GP’s surgery to ask for your results to be sent to you and bring them to your appointment.
If you aren’t sure if you we can help you with your issue then follow this WELLNESS CHECK to see if your health issue is something that we can treat. If you still aren’t sure what type of appointment you will need just come in and talk to us.

Live Blood Analysis
Live Blood analysis helps us form a picture about what is going on from a ‘live’ blood sample. It is a snapshot of your current internal health but is not a diagnostic tool. However we can sometimes determine what factors may be contributing to your ill health by looking at the blood directly:
- It takes 15 minutes to get an idea of what is going on in your blood
- Finding out about your symptoms takes longer and for the best picture we need both your health information and a live blood screening
- We can see signs of inflammation before or during it manifesting externally
- We can see signs of oxidative damage before it manifests externally
- We can see the health of the blood cells including some nutritional information regarding Iron, B12 & Folate
- We can often determine what white blood cells are the most active at the time
- We always recommend following up with Medical tests if we see signs of inflammation or damage to blood cells
- Live blood screening 20 minutes – $50
- Live blood screening 30 minutes – $80
- Live blood screening 90 minutes – $140
Diet is a huge part of our lives so by eating well we can prevent many lifestyle diseases and maximise our genetic potential. By doing a Dietary Analysis we analyse your diet to see if you are getting the required nutrients for your life stage & needs. This may include pregnancy nutrition, sports nutrition or any life stage nutrition. We ask you to fill out a Diet Dairy & Nutritional Signs & Symptoms questionnaire the week prior to coming to your appointment. In your appointment we go over the foods you are consuming and teach you what to do with an individualised Diet Plan to determine what nutritional support you may require:
- 60-90 minute initial appointment ~ We go over your diet and symptoms dairy and talk about what foods you need to eat more of in order to get the required nutrients from your diet. We may recommend supplementation to see how it improves your symptoms as well as recommend the dietary changes needed to up your daily intake through food.
- 30-45 minutes follow up ~ We follow up on your new meal plans and asses your symptoms, alerting you to further diet changes and how to make them easily.
- 30 minutes follow up ~ You then go away and further practice these new eating habits before coming back for a 30 minute follow up appointment to discuss the changes and results and how to move forward.
For most clients, returning to health is an ongoing process, so ongoing follow-ups are often recommended. This enables you to get the most from working with our practitioners and for us to give you the support and ongoing advice that you need to stay on track. It can be hard to stick with dietary and lifestyle changes, so with support and encouragement you can quickly determine why and how you feel the way you do. It is hard to know exactly how long you will need to see us for but we have an open door policy!
- Follow-ups ~ 15 ~ 30 minutes
- Touching base with your progress & offering ongoing support
- Checking back in after some time away
- Updating your personalised herbal prescription if you have a new issue come up

Live Blood Analysis
Live blood analysis is part of our service. Having your blood examined while it is live and filtered through a screen where you can see it is a unique visual experience. The analysis tells us if you are experiencing low-grade inflammation; it can reveal signs of oxidative stress; and it gives us a tool to investigate your health more fully. It is most helpful for tracking the progress of those with chronic inflammatory conditions, gut disturbance and chronic fatigue. Live blood analysis gives us an instant tool which allows us to refer you for further blood tests if needed. Contact Us or make a booking to see if Live Blood Analysis could help with your health concerns.
