To be able to provide you with Herbal Medicine, you need to undertake a consultation, one on one in person, or in case of too much distance via video call. In the consultation I can discuss with you about your medical history up until today, medication you have used and / or still using, family medical history, your diet and lifestyle, and if you are under supervision of any specialists.

Herbal Medicine are always tailored to your individual needs, based on the underlying causes of your illness.
