Stress and Fatigue


The effects of stress on the body are widespread and leach into almost every other system of the body.
By using herbal adaptogens and nervines we can support the body’s natural support system thereby regaining health and vitality.

Chronic Conditions


We have a new generation of chronic diseases that continuously deteriorate and rarely go away. Herbal medicine is effective in helping manage these diseases such as type 2 diabetes, auto-immune diseases, digestive diseases and inflammatory diseases. 

Health Lifestyles


At a herbal consultation we will look at all aspects of health including diet, exercise, sleep, alcohol consumption rest and stress management. It is as important to adjust and remedy contributing factors as it is to add in herbal care.

 Patient Feedback
Despite years of asthma, colds that turn to debilitating chest infections and the inevitable airplane cold every time I travel, I’ve just returned from five weeks abroad illness free!! Six flights, two train journeys & countless air conditioned hotel rooms, I’ve not had so much as a sniffle. This improvement I put down to working with Jean on improving my lungs & immune system. The little bottles of magic potion arrive by post, I take them & am getting stronger!! Thank you so much Jean, you’re lovely!!
