Your Personal Herbal Remedy
A herbal remedy, which is specifically made for you, will usually be prescribed and/or nutritional supplements, lifestyle modifications, dietary changes may be suggested. Herbal remedies are completely natural and are a gentler form of medicine, this can mean that they will work slower than pharmaceuticals, thus you will be advised to return for a follow-up appointment in two to four weeks.
Further appointments may be necessary to assess whether your prescription requires adjusting as your health improves.
Herbal remedies most commonly come in the form of tincture (plant constituents extracted in water and alcohol), herbal teas, powders, capsules, creams, oils and ointments.
