Hormones are the body’s messengers in perfect harmony they create a sense of wellbeing. If even one is out of balance it throws the whole delicate system into disarray. Finding the root cause of your hormonal problem is the key to optimum health and a sense of joy in just being. Hormones affect whether you are happy or sad, energetic or lethargic, ovulating or not , in pain or in comfort.
A simple imbalance in one area of the hormonal system can affect many aspects of your health. Herbal medicine may help nudge the body back into balance so that you can get on with life.
After giving birth to my daughter 2 years ago it took my body a while to gain back my strength - I followed a very nurturing, warming, Ayurvedic type of postnatal diet which helped me gain my strength. I also breastfed her until very recently and found my hormones very unbalanced lately. I started having irregular, painful periods and night sweats at times, not to mention mood swings and cravings. After nearly a month on Katherine’s mix, I can feel a massive difference. Less cravings, so much less painful periods, no more night sweats and just an overall better feeling!! I couldn’t recommend her more. Thank you Katherine Bellchambers.

The Natural Approach
Western Medical Herbalism looks at your health in terms of you as a whole person. I will help you find the root cause of your problem and effect long term change to improve your health.
Herbal medicine is the use of whole plants or plant extracts to help your body make itself better. Whether you put some of the herb in your soup or your stew, whether the herbs are made into teas, oils, decoctions or alcohol extractions called tinctures the life of the plant in the form of it's individual constituents are transferred from the ground into you.
Anyone can use herbal medicine. Many of us already self medicate by rubbing a dock leaf on a nettle sting (actually it's better if you put the leaf in your mouth and chew it a little first) drinking peppermint tea to help a meal go down or taking a cup of chamomile to bed to help the transition into sleep, plant medicine is everywhere.
A herbalist, like me, can help by introducing you to plants and extracts you might not yet have heard of. We study anatomy, physiology, medical diagnosis, pathology and pharmacology, as well as how to heal with herbs.
