The Herbal Clinic
Clinically Experienced Herbal Medicine Practitioners
Medical Herbalists in Fife
The Herbal Clinic within Health Food and More was established in 1997 as The Kirkcaldy Herbal Clinic. Originally based in Tolbooth House in Kirkcaldy it was founded by Keren Brynes MacLean, a long standing Member of the National Institute of Medical Herbalists. Keren still consults from the practice today alongside other experienced Medical Herbalists, offering herbal medicine treatment that complements orthodox medicines.
YOUR APPOINTMENT AT THE CLINIC
Your first consultation will usually consist of a detailed medical history, mapping your current health problems, past medical complaints, genetic predispositions and current lifestyle and nutritional influences overlaid with a full systemic health enquiry. Your Medical Herbalist may perform clinical examinations if necessary to establish a clear diagnosis or may refer you back to your GP for further investigations if it would be of benefit.
After building a clear picture of you and your needs, your Consultant Medical Herbalist will then draft a treatment plan with you that may include dietary changes, lifestyle guidance and your own unique herbal formula that will be hand blended from the herbal dispensary. The aim being, where possible, to establish the underlying factors and influences that may contribute towards your current health status and try to resolve the root cause of any health problem whilst also alleviating uncomfortable symptoms.
YOUR IMPROVING HEALTH
Usually after a period of between two to eight weeks, depending on your specific complaint, you will come back to the clinic to assess changes to your health, review your progress and adjust your herbal formula. As your symptoms and health improve your medicine is adapted accordingly to ensure optimum results and well being. Subsequent appointments are arranged at increasingly longer intervals as your symptoms recede and your health and well-being returns.
