Natural Health Consultation
Emma's philosophy and understanding of health is fundamentally based in environmental and mental health, diet and lifestyle choices, your 'self talk' and your coping mechanisms. Generally, the first consultation is a 11/2 hour discussion of how ill health manifests in your body, your constitutional weaknesses and any family vulnerability to certain diseases. You will be asked about your full medical and medicines history. There is a great focus on your diet and lifestyle, your crutches from pies to cream cakes, and 'poisons' alcohol, cigarettes etc.
Because Natural Medicine is not widely funded aside from the odd concession to physiotherapy, acupuncture and a handful of other modalities, it can be rather expensive, especially using herbs and supplements in the long term. However, Emma's belief is that Natural Medicine is the birth right of everyone and can easily be made affordable. She harvests and crafts a selection of herbs and can source other organically grown herbs for you. The idea is to leave with a solution, not a cost benefit quandry. You may leave with a few plants to dig into your garden, balcony pots or kitchen windowsill. The deal might be, you look after them and they'll nurture you.
Emma has acupuncture and massage as part of her armoury and experience of other modalities to which she may direct you, including recommended professionals.
