The First Visit

Book yourself in here:  http://meetme.so/MaggiePope

At the first visit the Medical Herbalist will begin by taking a full case history, past medical history and family history. You will be asked a series of questions which relate to each system of your body to provide a good understanding of your general health. Diet, lifestyle and emotional state are all taken into consideration. Blood pressure is usually taken on the first visit and physical examinations may be performed if indicated. A urine test will be carried out if necessary.

After the consultation you will be asked to wait while the practitioner prepares your prescribed medicine.

While I’m waiting for a patient…

November 27, 2018

  I am expecting a patient in just over 40 minutes. Long enough to write a blog post. My roof is leaking, the bit that is over my dispensary – so not ideal. I have managed to clear up enough so the patient won’t notice the black plastic sheeting above the cupboards positioned to prevent water from […]

Harvesting Passionflower from the garden

September 15, 2018
