My practice: is a combination of therapies: Western Herbal medicine, Iridology, Naturopathy and Ayurveda.
In the first consultation I will take your medical history, current medical issues, go through your body systems, family history, your diet, and current medications. I use clinical observation, where I take your pulse, blood pressure if needed, do tongue inspection, irides analysis and look at your skin health.
Then I will analyse your case using both biomedical and energetic information and give you suggestions of herbal formula, diet recommendations and naturopathic techniques. I will advise you on any lifestyle changes that need working on and will encourage and coach you with these.
Usually in the first consultation I suggest you do my detox kit regime, this includes and detox tea, digestive bitters tincture and intestinal cleanse capsules.
In the second session I will make you up a personalised herbal tincture or herbal powder, this will have a more personalised physiological effect on your in personal case. These treatments will usually take a few months to show improvements or a bit longer depending on the severity of your condition.
I offer an Iridology report service, where I use an iris scope to photograph each iris and analyse the data and write a report for of your individual case, this usually takes 3 weeks. This is very helpful for your specific healing purposes and for your own constitutional awareness.
Western Herbal Medicines: are prescribed according to their category and action. They are given in the form of teas, powders, tinctures or creams, these will support the specific organ, tissue or body system, to repair and function properly. If the health issue is acute or chronic, herbal medicines will often have something to offer.
Iridology: is the study of information from the eyes for diagnostic and treatment purposes. It looks at 4 main factors: constitution, disposition, diathesis and specific signs at reflex points in the iris. It works well with herbal medicine and a valuable tool for very specific healing modalities.
Naturopathy: is a broad term for many natural healing methods, that promote the body to heal its self, using natural methods. Some of the naturopathic therapies I use are: skin brushing, Bach flowers, hydrotherapy, juicing, superfood powders, castor oil packs and self oil massage.
Ayurveda: is the divine "Science of life", from India, an ancient form healthcare that has a naturopathic philosophy, with texts books dating back 2000 years ago. Ayurveda is full of beneficial medical methods and treatment protocols for the benefit of mankind. Primarily it uses an element system of the body to treat and diagnose, these are kapha, pitta and vata, corresponding to earth/water, water/fire and air/ether, respectively. Ayurveda emphasises good health with proper digestion and believes all disease starts and ends in the stomach.
Training, qualifications & experience:
Like many people, I have always been fascinated by nature, my mother, as a child always emphasised a wholesome diet whilst growing up. She would often give me homeopathic tablets, herbal creams, and nutrifying soups, if I had a bruise or was ill.
Later on, after looking into eastern religions in my 20's I came across Ayurveda and decided to study alternative medicine. In 2006 I completed a Bachelors of Arts in Ayurvedic Studies from Thames Valley University. After the course I did an internship in a college hospital in India, near Mangalore, where I completed of 1200 hours of clinical experience.
Recently I graduated from The College of Naturopathic Medicine, London, in 2019, with diplomas in Herbal Medicine and Naturopathy. In 2020 I completed an Advance Iridology Diploma, from the same college.
I have a big enthusiasm for alternative medicine and the mechanics of the human body. For me, the phenomena of the healing capacity of plant medicines on the human body is fascinating. The value of health has become more and more apparent to me, as it is the necessity to experience life properly. I hope to use natures tools and gained wisdom of past natural health pioneers to practice my therapies to the best of my ability.
