FAQ

Below will help you with any frequently asked questions including the process of working with Byron Herbalist including the services we offer and just as important the services we don’t!

We are a small and busy boutique health clinic with a specialised offering. This works well for most and poorly for a few. Please become aquatinted with the process below before booking and and committing to the time and energy to regaining your health.

How we work together

In your initial appointment we cover your history, presenting symptoms, diet and lifestyle. Together we will piece together a picture of your health, establish a baseline and set some goals. Often follow up lab work is required and will be discussed here.

Within 24-48 business hours, a treatment plan will be emailed to you outlining my recommendations. These often include functional testing, herbs, supplements, diet and lifestyle.

In your first follow up, 2-4 weeks later, I interpret your results from any lab testing that was ordered. We discuss how this impacts your treatment timeline and I update your healthcare plan to address the root cause of your symptoms ongoing.

Initially we connect for a 30-45 minute appointment every 2-4 weeks. During active treatment it is important to check in and discuss symptom improvements so that I can help steer and adjust the treatment.

When you begin to see significant improvements in your health and wellbeing our appointments together will progressively become spaced further and further apart. You will be working on the foundations we have established and ideally need less herbal and supplement support ongoing.

What We Don’t Offer

  • Email Support – Emails are not a good way to get you better. I have opted to keep my consult fees down and do not offer email support. If you need support before your next appointment reach out and I will book you in for a follow up sooner. If you are a patient that feels you need email support please let the admin team know and they can send over a referral to a clinic that offers this support.
  • Professional Counselling – While I understand emotional wellbeing is crucial for proper healing I am not a trained counsellor. If you suffer from moderate to severe anxiety or depression or are struggling with addictions then I recommend working with a skilled therapist alongside working with me.
  • Total Responsibility for Your Health – I see myself as a facilitator of health. You have to do all the hard work by taking your prescribed herbs and supplements and incorporating dietary and lifestyle changes as discussed. If I find myself working harder than you on your health goals I will address the issue and offer a referral if necessary.
  • Guarantees or Reliable Timelines – The longer I work with chronic health conditions the more I recognise the complexity of the human body. There are no guarantees that complimentary alternative medicine will cure your condition within a set timeline. While I am here to support your health I am not responsible for your health and health outcomes.
