I am a licensed herbalist and I offer consultations in herbal medicine, natural whole food nutrition, iris analysis (iridology), dietary advice and natural healing techniques. I take a natural and holistic approach to health care, by firstly identifying, and then treating the underlying cause of imbalance which manifests as ill-health. The aim of treatment is to restore balance to the body, by cleansing and nourishing, thus enabling the body's innate power of self-healing 

Herbal medicine offers a safe, gentle and effective treatment, it can benefit people of all ages. Herbal medicine and natural
healing can be used to treat a wide range of acute or long term chronic conditions, and illnesses such as digestive disturbances,
skin disorders, stress, hormone imbalances (PMT, thyroid, diabetes), depression, anxiety, arthritis, infections, cardiovascular
disorders, respiratory and kidney issues, amongst others.

Treatment will be centred around dietary and lifestyle changes, natural healing protocols and if necessary, 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 natural skincare products, 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 Vitalist 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 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.
