I offer Herbal Medicine consultations from a quiet and private room upstairs in the Pillars of Hercules Farm Shop and Cafe in Falkland, Fife on Tuesdays, Thursdays & Fridays in person or via video or phone call.
The consultation process is key for gaining accurate information, making sure that the right herbs are chosen and used safely for each individual.
The initial consultation lasts 1-2 hours and I will ask you a lot of questions about your current and past health, diet and lifestyle, as well as using iridology as a diagnostic technique to help me to make an assessment for your herb requirements.
I will provide you with diet and lifestyle recommendations after this initial consultation as well as a 2-3 weeks supply of herbal medicine shortly after.
Follow Up Consultations
The follow-up consultation happens 2-3 weeks later to check in with how you've been getting on with the herbs and suggested changes. This usually takes 30-45 minutes and allows me to check that the herbs you are taking are well suited to you, as well as providing a chance for you to ask questions and for further development and recommendations.
Another follow up is recommended 1 month later to assess the longer term support of the herbs and integration into your life and routine. We can also plan how to continue with the herbs, or begin to reduce the prescription.
Treatment may be ongoing after this period and it depends on the individual how long they will need to continue taking herbs. I usually recommend 3 months for more acute issues, and 6 months for longer term chronic conditions and imbalances.
The ultimate goal is that you will regain health and be in a more empowered position to help yourself in the future. After 3 months we can find a way to integrate and support the changes you’ve made going forward to accommodate your health situation and budget.

Please note that I am currently working in person and via video or phone call. In-person appointments at Pillars of Hercules are subject to social distancing measures and good health. Video/phone calls are recommended for those in more vulnerable health situations.
Short Acute Consultation
This is recommended if you’d just like to register with me to buy tinctures, dried herbs or for simple prescriptions like tonics, immune support, cough remedies or creams etc.
