Service Description

What Is Herbal Medicine? Herbal medicine is an alternative medicine that uses the roots, stems, leaves, flowers or seeds of a plant to improve health, prevent disease and support wellbeing. One of the first signs of herbal medicine use was back in 2800BC and it has been used ever since- the proof is in the pudding! Herbal medicine is an alternative, natural way of support, therefore, herbalists focus on the patient at present and the root cause of their illness rather than symptom suppression. After understanding the patients presenting constitution, herbalists prescribe an array of herbs they feel will be helpful for that client- herbs have an incredible way of knowing what their exact purpose is in an individual body, herbalists just 'give the boat a push'! How Does Lekita Work? Although Lekita incorporates herbal medicine into her naturopathic sessions, these sessions focus solely on herbal healing without other resources. Therefore, stronger, more focused herbal tinctures are provided. Lekita will go over your health history, symptoms, medications etc in detail before coming up with a great herbal combination to combat ill health complaints and support wellbeing. Lekita uses 'traditional' herbal medicine, as opposed to Chinese or Ayurvedic herbal medicine, however, TCM and Ayurvedic principles are incorporated into herbal plans. Lekita may also use Bach flower remedies if necessary. What To Expect During a Follow-up Consultation? Follow-up consultations typically last 1 hour. During this time, Lekita will review what is/is not working with your prescribed herbal medicine plan and any changes in symptoms, medication use, diet, stress etc. If necessary, Lekita will perform another physical examination to determine new causes of disease and health priorities. Once the consultation is complete, a new herbal prescription and plan will be sent to the client. Follow-up consultations will cost £100 for an hours session plus updated herbal plan tailored to the clients needs. Follow-up appointments should be booked in for 3 weeks-1 month following consultation. How Many Sessions Will I Need? This varies from client to client. Some clients may only need 2 sessions to see benefits and achieve goals, whereas, other clients may chose to attend sessions for years and receive long term support.
