After a lifelong interest in natural alternatives to allopathic medicine; in 1992 the “urge” became so strong that I began studying Herbal Medicine. I qualified as a practitioner, and the rest, as they say, is history! Well, not really, but natural alternatives became a huge part of my life.
I see patients who wish to use natural supplements and herbs, on a part time basis. I use that knowledge and experience to assist you in making informed choices in the supplements, vitamins and herbs which you may want to use. Please be aware that I may earn commission on products which you may choose to purchase as a result of my recommendations.
