Get in Touch Maggie Pope

The First Visit

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.
