The clinic experience

In my herbal clinic, you will be encouraged to describe your health issue and your current diet and lifestyle. I will listen carefully and respectfully as you tell your story and may ask questions to work out the underlying cause of the issue, so that the herbs prescribed will work with your body to correct the imbalance(s) and improve your health. I am trained to examine and diagnose illness in the same way as a medical doctor. I will then draw up a prescription specifically designed for you.

I use several forms of herbal medicine:

  • tinctures, where the herb is extracted and preserved in alcohol and the liquid remedy needs to be diluted in water
  • teas, where dried herbs are covered with boiling water and infused for several minutes
  • creams and salves, to be applied to the affected part(s)
  • essential oils diluted in a carrier oil, to be applied as directed.
  • dietary changes – many foods we can eat have a gentle medicinal effect and including appropriate foods in the diet can improve health.

  1. Hi Jo

    How are you keeping? I came across your site whilst looking into all things ‘herbal’. Can you please add me to your mailing list as I would be very interested in your next workshop on Herbal remedies for the family.

    Many thanks
    Rosa

    1. Hi Rosa,
      I’ll certainly add you to the mailing list. I’m running an open clinic day (10-4) on Tue 26 May, followed by a free talk “Home remedies for the Home” at 7.30pm that night. If there’s enough interest from that, I’ll run a course following on from that, otherwise it will be September.

      Hope you’re all well,
      Jo

  2. Hello! I have just discovered foraging in Ireland and I saw that you organize them. Would there be any chance for a Summer edition? I would be very much looking forward to them!
    Thanks a lot in advance,
    Claudia

    1. Hi Claudia,

      Yes I will be running foraging walks this summer in Co. Cork. Dates will be confirmed on this website soon, keep checking in!

      Kind regards, Jo
