HERBALISM offers people a safe and effective treatment for many conditions, and encourages balance to the body along with restoration of function to organs and body systems. Many conditions suffered by people have no specific pathology, with people being told they have to "put up with their suffering" as their is "no known cause or cure." Stress has been medically recognised as a precursor to many symptoms. Relieving Stress reduces excessive production and release of cortisol, a hormone which is linked to many inflammatory conditions along with weight gain.

Biocompatability testing,
using a sample of hair against 500 commonly used foods and household products can show which of these items may result in a disruption to the immune system, subsequently causing the aggravating symptoms.
Elimination of those items along with a choice of foods and products that are safe for the body often alleviates these common symptoms.
Other conditions such as chronic, long standing joint pain and headaches, hayfever, sinus, recurrent infections, along with many other complaints have shown remarkable improvement with this simple, six month protocol.

Supplementation with herbal formulae, creams and tablets, individually prescribed for specific symptoms, may often assist recovery.

We as a society live and work in a hurried and often complex lifestyle with many of us not realising the detrimental impact this may have on our health and wellbeing. People often experience headaches on a daily basis, stress and tension, anxiety, rashes and itchy skin, these being symptoms of irritibility and irritation, brought about by an inability of our immune system to maintain a healthy balance because there are so many unrecognised assaults put upon it. This is often brought about through inadequate nutrition and may be caused by food sensitivities, malabsorption, insulin resistance or simply an imbalanced diet. The importance of a balanced diet cannot be stressed enough. The old saying "you are what you eat" is more relevant today than ever, as our busy, hectic lifestyles often interfere with a healthy, balanced diet. How often have you said to yourself that you must make more time for exercise, spend more time relaxing, or simply eating more healthily? How many of you have been to a doctor with digestive problems, only to come away without resolution?


The main focus is aimed at reducing sensitivities to the immune system that impact on every body function and may include such conditions as Allergies, Eczema, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Digestive discomfort, Insomnia, Anxiety, PMS syndrome, Menopause, Infertility and many more functional conditions.

Herbalism offers people a safe and effective method of treatment for many conditions, and encourages balance to the body and restoration of function to organs and body systems. Many conditions suffered by people have no specific pathology, with people being told they have to put up with their suffering as their is no known cause or cure.

Many peope have been treated successfully, providing long term relief from many chronic and seemingly settled ailments that have been viewed by other practitioners as untreatable.

Biocompatability testing offers a non intrusive, safe and effective treatment for many of these conditions and along with herbal supplementation can bring great relief of symptoms. The test is a simple hair test against 400 foods and household products and reveals sensitivities that are creating inflammation through the immune system. A simple program followed for six months, followed by a retest to ascertain the allergens that have corrected and any new sensitivities that may have occurred brings much needed to relief to many.


Many people experience pain, indigestion, bloating, diarrhoea or constipation as a daily struggle, but life does not have to be that way. These are amongst a plethora of symptoms often medically diagnosed as Irritable Bowel Syndrome, commonly labelled IBS. People frequently leave a consultation with their current practitioner disillusioned, without helpful advice or any way of alleviating the often debilitating symptoms with the comment that there is “no known cause or treatment” and that one must simply “put up with it”. Herbalism provides a healthy, natural alternative.

Retesting after six to nine months may reveal what items may have corrected and considered safe for gradual reintroduction into the body, along with any new sensitivities that may have occurred during the correction phase.
