Herbal Medicine with Canda Diacono
BA (Hons), Dip. Herb. Med., MNIMH
I am a Medical Herbalist practicing in the Western Herbal Tradition.
In this tradition we treat the whole person and not just their symptoms, seeking to address the root cause of ill health and working with the body's natural capacity for healing.
My practice combines traditional herbal knowledge with modern medical science and research in the treatment of disease and to achieve optimal health. Following a consultation, I will create a personalised treatment plan for you that includes a herbal prescription(s) as well as achievable dietary and lifestyle changes. I may also refer you to your GP or other medical professional.
An initial consultation lasts 60-90 minutes where we will discuss in-depth your symptoms, previous medical history, medications and build a picture of your lifestyle and diet. A follow up appointment lasts approximately 30 minutes and we will monitor progress and make any modifications to your prescriptions.
