Q  - What to expect from the consultation?
An initial consultation consists of taking an in-depth case history including details of the presenting complaint, the health of body systems and dietary analysis. The EDS (electrodermal screening) tests that are appropriate are carried out, whether it be food intolerance testing or measuring the strength of an organ. At the end of the meeting a printout of the results are given to the client. Daniela will then put together a report which involves a summary of her findings, details of the herbal remedies prescribed and a dietary plan. Herbal medicine that is suggested and this is given in the form of a bespoke liquid formulation typically of 5-6 herbs. These are typically ordered from European suppliers who under European law make herbal extracts to GMP standards. Sometimes capsules are also used. Follow up appointments are normally every two to four weeks where the progress is assessed and any changes made.

Q  - How long will it take to get better?
Recovery depends upon the severity of your condition. Although you may feel better soon after treatment, recovery typically takes approximately six weeks. In some cases it may take three to six months to reach optimum health.

Q  - Do I have to brew and drink horrible tasting teas?
No! Most herbs are prescribed in the form of capsules, pills, or tinctures. Tinctures are an herbal liquid extract that can be taken directly or mixed in water or juice. If teas are you thing though, my range of medicinal teas have been specially blended for their palatability as well as their effectiveness.
