Consultation

The aim of online herbal consultation is:

  • To explore your current health and wellbeing (both physical and mental)
  • To determine a priority of what we should be ‘treating’ at this point of time (acute or chronic)
  • To support you with the help of Chinese herbs
  • To plan your long-term health and wellbeing
  • To provide you with dietary advice traditional to Chinese herbal medicine
  • To answer any questions, you might have about Chinese herbal medicine

As we are exploring your health and current challenges, we will produce a treatment plan that includes any lifestyle and dietary advice and will email that to you after the conclusion of the online session. We will also determine if Chinese herbs are appropriate to be prescribed at this time. Please remember that they are not supplements; they are medicines that aim at treating the entire system rather than a symptom.

A herbal consultation requires information to describe your current health problem. The use of video is used so I can assess your facial complexion and the state of your tongue. Tongue diagnosis is an integral part of Chinese medicine diagnostic methods. In the absence of palpation (abdominal and pulse), we required more signs and symptoms to make an accurate diagnosis according to Chinese medicine principles. For my preparation, you will answer some basic questions. All herbs will be prepared by the TGA (Therapeutic Goods Administration) licensed Chinese herbal dispensary called Safflower. Herbs are extra (on top of the consultation costs) and require payment before shipment. All information (treatment plan, additional reading, dietary recommendations) will be sent to you via email.

The price of the initial consultation also includes a short follow up consultation.
