I am a licensed Master Medical Herbalist and I offer consultations in herbal medicine, natural whole food nutrition, iris analysis (iridology), dietary advice and natural protocols. I take a complementary, natural and holistic approach to health care. The aim is to restore balance to the body, by supporting, gently cleansing and nourishing it using herb, dietary and lifestyle changes. Unique herbal formulae are devised and blended by me for each person.

Herbal medicine is safe, gentle and effective, and can benefit people of all ages. It has been used worldwide for centuries
and there is a great tradition of herbalism in this country.
Herbal medicine can be used to help alleviate symptoms of a wide
range of health conditions, and illnesses such as digestive disturbances, skin disorders, stress, anxiety, amongst others.

I advise people on dietary and lifestyle changes, natural protocols and if necessary, blend unique herbal formulae for each person. I use ethically sourced herbs, of the highest standard, and organic whenever possible. Many of the herbs grow in the environment around us, and have been used safely and effectively by our ancestors for centuries. I also make unique, natural skincare products for individuals, using herbs that I gather in the wild, and others from my garden.

I trained as a Master Herbalist for 4 years in the Western herbal medicine tradition, in the Irish School of Herbal Medicine, with the Master Herbalist Helen Begadon, and have a Licentiate to practice as a Medical Herbalist, along with a Diploma in Iridology and Natural Nutrition. I have a Science degree and a PhD in Biochemistry from NUI Galway, and worked for many years as a scientific and medical researcher. I am a member of the Irish Association of Master Medical Herbalists (IAMMH) and the Irish Institute of Iridologists.

I practise
in Evergreen Healthfoods, An Fuarán, Moycullen, Co. Galway, Thyme Glas Health Food shop, Spiddal, Co. Galway and I can also travel to meet you if necessary.
