Is Herbal Medicine Safe?
Herbal medicine works with nature, not against it.

It is safe in the right hands. It is safe in the right doses, prescribed by a qualified practitioner.

Herbal medicine is suitable for everyone, if used properly, including babies and pregnant women.

Children can respond particularly well to herbal medicine.

By consulting a medical herbalist you are ensuring expert advice and treatment for your condition.

It is sometimes tempting to treat yourself with over-the-counter herbal products.

This can be very successful if your problems are straightforward and the quality of the products is good.

However if the condition is chronic or you are concerned about conflicting effects of other medication, then seeing a qualified herbalist is highly advisable.

Will treatments conflict with medication I am taking?
Always consult a fully trained medical herbalist. when considering herbal treatments.

Luzia will always take your complete medical history and medication into consideration before any diagnosis is reached or treatments prescribed.

A well-trained herbalist is always looking for the causes of ill-health, no matter how subtle, and correcting these.

What amount of herbs or tinctures should I use?

How quickly can benefits be expected from herbs?
Some people are helped by the herbs after a very short time - perhaps only a day or two.

It may take longer to notice benefits - perhaps 3-4 weeks, and sometimes much longer.

As with other similar products, response to our herbal products can vary from person to person.

Personal experience of the herbs will enable you see how they can help you.

If in any doubt, please contact us, as always.

How can I maximise the benefits of the herbs?
A cleansing diet helps the herbs or tinctures to work better in many cases.

Eat more fruit and non-starchy vegetables, and eat less meat and dairy foods.

Drink plenty of water and herbal teas.

If possible excercise a little.

Internal organs can hold a lot of toxins, activity helps the organs to cleanse, it brings balance and relieves stress.

Exercise improves lymphatic circulation and increases fluid circulation in the muscles and joints, as well as strengthening heart and lungs.

Do you do Home Visits?
Yes! If you are unable to get to the Practice for your consultation, Luzia is happy to come to see you.

That said, anywhere further than Dorset/Somerset/Hampshire/Wiltshire would be unrealistic. Give her a call or send an email to check.

Alternatively, you could have a telephone consultation, but Luzia is unlikely to prescribe any complicated medicines without first seeing you. She may however be able to recommend a herbalist in your area.
