Herbal Medicine is an ancient form of medicine, it is a plant based medicine and is the root of all medicine we have today but in its natural state. Preparations are made using the whole plant to make tinctures, creams, infusions, decoctions, vinegars, essential oils & ointments. Different preparations allow the body to take herbs in different ways to suit each need.
It is a very gentle yet powerful healing method. It’s a great aid for people who would prefer not to take pharmaceuticals and would like to take a more natural approach to their health care.
The plants connect with us on all levels and interact with all our bodies processes. We can directly rectify any miscommunication our bodies are having with any of our bodily & mental functions in a very gentle and natural way using herbal medicine.
This plant medicine does not override the body’s processes. Instead, it helps bring our body back into balance helping the shift into healing. It works best when we look at a person as a whole and pick the herbs that suits the person not the condition. This is the expertise you receive with a qualified Herbalist.
Herbs contain antioxidants, vitamins, minerals & many more amazing compounds that help our bodies to heal. They are so gentle to the body and yet so powerful, its no surprise why this ancient medicine has been passed down through generations and survived to this day.
Herbal Medicine and Nutritional Therapy techniques make a great team for healing the body naturally. One supports the other. Herbal medicine can give immediate results where needed and nutritional therapy lays the foundation and support to keep the body healthy long term.
Herbal Medicine is a great support and healing method for many chronic and stubborn conditions such as skin disorders, hormonal issues, infertility and even cancer. It is also an invaluable aid in acute conditions such as colds & flu and a more logical alternative to antibiotics in most cases.
Nutrition is the foundation of good health and herbs are the helper. Natural herbs give us the boost that we need to get us through tough times.
“I am so happy with the results achieved following Rachael’s recommendations and remedies! She helped me get over 5 years of severe digestion issues in about 6 months following her treatment and guidance after trying multiple conventional treatments without success over the years.
I really enjoy our consultations, she’s very diligent and kind, couldn’t recommend more :)”

“I have been seeing Rachael for several months now and it simply changed my life! I went primarily to her because of skin issues- rosacea on my cheeks- and digestion problems. But answering her very thorough questionnaire and questioning my lifestyle, I realized I needed much more help than I thought. She helped me see how much changing my habits and food I eat have an impact on my skin, my digestion but also my moods, my energy and my mindset… After a few months, I feel like a new person with new energy and less sadness in me… and a much better skin! She taught me so many things I want to keep learning about. She really takes her time with you and makes you feel like you are her only patient. I can only recommend her: she’s supportive and knowledgeable. It feels good after the dermatologists and other practitioners I saw who didn’t help at all.”
