“It is a wholesome and necessary thing for us to turn again to the earth
and in the contemplation of her beauties to know the sense of wonder and humility”
What is an Herbalist?
Herbalists take an holistic approach to illness, treating the underlying cause of disease rather than just the symptoms. They are able to offer herbal remedies to be used alongside other medication and treatments, and many patients are referred to an Herbalist by their GP for treatment.
Herbal Medicine is suitable for people of any age, including children, who respond especially well to the gentle actions of herbs. Each patient is treated as an individual – a Clinical Herbalist recognizes that no two patients are the same.
What is Herbal Medicine?
Herbal medicines are plant-based medicines made from differing combinations of plant parts e.g. leaves, flowers or roots. Each part can have different medicinal uses and the many types of chemical constituents require different extraction methods. Both fresh and dried plant matter are used, depending on the herb.
Working With Mona
What I offer is a way to look at the idea of health and whole body wellness in a new way which brings you closer in alignment with your body. This is about giving you the tools you need in order to feel empowered and gain control over your own healthcare. My work is affirming, non-judgmental, and confidential.
In addition to being a clinical herbalist, I also have a strong background in holistic nutrition, supplementation, and energetic healing. In my private session with you we will conduct an in-depth health assessment by taking your full medical history, we will discuss your diet and lifestyle, and any medications or supplements you are currently using. Additionally, it is important to know that while I am a clinical herbalist this is holistic health care and considers all aspects of your life – physical, emotional, and spiritual.
