Breast Cancer Support
Breast Milk Support
Pre & Post Natal Support
I treat many ladies for this sort of depression which comes on a few weeks or months after birthing. It can be devastating and long lasting and it is preventable. In nutritional terms, very high expectations and getting run down before the birth can consume all of your available Vitamin B reserves. You can therefore find yourself with a brand new baby and very little emotional energy no vitamin B's in reserve.
Herbs: Vervain, Chamomile, Borage, Rosehips, St Mary's Thistle and Yarrow, with the Bach Flower Rescue Remedy, Walnut and Gorse.
Post Natal Depression
For those suffering depression after the birth of a child I recommend taking taking this combination of Nervous System and Hormonal Balancing support herbs along with very large doses of Vitamin B Complex and Vitamin B 12.
Herbs: Mugwort, Oak, Chamomile, Vervain, Pulsatilla, Phytolacca, Comfrey Pine Bark and Yarrow with the Bach Flowers Mustard, Walnut, Beech and Scleranthus
Stretch Marks Prevention
The cream is to be massaged gently into the stomach and upper thighs daily before bed at night and after a hot shower in the morning. It should be used continuously throughout the second half of pregnancy and for three months after birthing.
Herbs: This herbal mix contains herbal extracts of Maritime Pine, Comfrey, Rosemary, Hypericum, Equisetum, Comfrey, Slippery Elm and Wheat grass which will improve the elasticity of your skin and the connective tissue supporting the skin and allow it to stretch during pregnancy and recover after birthing to minimize or eliminate the appearance of stretch marks.
Primary dysmenorrhea is abdominal pain stemming from uterine cramps during a menstrual period. This is a common condition occurring to some degree in 50% of menstruating women. The contractions occur when blood supply to the lining of the uterus is reduced. The pain itself can be severe enough to disrupt everyday activities.
Herbs: The herbs I include in my Dysmenorrhea mix are: Chamomile, Poke Root, Wild Yam, Horse Chestnut, Blue Cohosh along with the Bach Flowers Aspen, Mimulus, Vine and Honeysuckle.
Endometriosis is defined as the presence of endometrium like glands and stroma (or the normal inner lining of the uterus) occurring outside the uterus.
Herbs: The mixture I provide to assist in reversing the condition consists of a concentrated extract of the herbs; Pulsatilla, Phytolacca, Chamomile, Comfrey, Equisetum and Wild Yam along with the Bach Flower Remedies Walnut, Mimulus, Willow and Impatiens.
Menstrual difficulties and fertility have been another of the major preoccupations of traditional herbalists since earliest times. There is a vast knowledge about herbs which support all aspects of fertility and reproduction and many different herbs to choose amongst to suit individual cases.
Herbs: The Fertility treatment mix I recommend as a starting place includes the herbs:- Pulsatilla, Phytolacca, Rosehips, Chamomile, Blue Flag and Raspberry Leaf along with the Bach Flowers Scleranthus and Walnut.
Uterine leiomyomas, better known as uterine fibroids, are benign smooth muscle tumours of the uterus.
Herbs: The herbs I include in my basic mix include Chamomile, Comfrey, Equisetum, Raspberry Leaf, Rosehips, Golden Seal and Maritime Pine along with the Bach Flower Remedies Wild Oat, Walnut, Scleranthus and Wild Rose.
Mastitis is an infection of the milk ducts of the breast and it is particularly likely early in a mother's first experience with breast-feeding.
Herbs: The specific mix I make up includes the following herbs: Chamomile, Garlic, Rosehips, Echinacea and Fenugreek with the Bach Flower Remedies Walnut and Larch.
There are many natural alternatives to Hormone Replacement Therapy (H.R.T.) and its attendant discomfort and dangers.
Herbs: My choice as a starting point contains the following herbs:- Vervain, Wild Yam, Euphorbia, Pulsatilla, Rosehips, Liquorice and Blue Flag in a Bach Flower base of Cerato, Wild Oat and Scleranthus.
Morning Sickness Treatment
This simple to take mixture (just a few drops in water) will support the Liver and Pancreas where most nausea responses originate as well as gently assisting your body and your nervous system to come to terms with the hormonal changes generally involved in early pregnancy.
Herbs: Ginger has a place in all types of nauseous responses and my Morning Sickness mix has this herb along with Chamomile, Liquorice, Sarsaparilla, Raspberry Leaf, Hypericum, Vervain, Fennel and St.Mary's Thistle all in concentrated liquid extract form.
For Ovarian Cancer the herbs which I have chosen for my basic support mix are; Wild Yam, St Mary's Thistle, Comfrey, Wormwood, Hawthorne, Equisetum and Yarrow. The Bach Flower Remedies which are included are Centaury, Sweet Chestnut, Red Chestnut, Rockwater and Wild Oat. These herbs in combination, support one another, and support a resolution of the patient's self sacrificial or life fulfilment issues which we believe can be a causual factor in ovarian cancer.
Ovarian Cysts sound like some sort of illness or abnormal occurrence but in fact, every month a cyst forms on either the left or the right hand side ovary in a normally ovulating woman.
Herbs: My herbal treatment consists of a concentrated extract of the herb Red Clover (which specifically thins the walls of cysts and encourages the cysts to rupture much earlier in their cycle) along with the herbs Pulsatilla, Phytolacca, Chamomile, Blue Flag, St Mary's Thistle and Rosehips. To these I add the Bach Flower Remedies Walnut, Red Chestnut, Wild Oat and Impatiens.
Many adult males begin to experience difficulty in passing urine from middle age onward. These difficulties include incomplete emptying, frequency of urges to urinate but not being able to pass much, or spraying urine as if it is coming out under pressure rather than a good strong stream.
Herbs: I prepare a herbal extract mix of the following herbs:- Saw Palmetto, Maritime Pine Bark, Comfrey, Celery, Juniper, Blue Flag, Phytolacca, Cleavers and Rosehips to promote urinary and bladder health and kidney function in general. I also include the Bach Flowers Scleranthus, Wild Oat, Larch and Wild Rose.
For Uterine Cancer the herbs which I have chosen for my basic support mix are; Pulsatilla, Phytolacca, Comfrey, Wormwood, St Mary's Thistle, Hawthorne, Equisetum and Yarrow. The Bach Flower Remedies which are included are Centaury, Sweet Chestnut, Red Chestnut, and Wild Oat. These herbs in combination, support one another, and support a resolution of the patient's self sacrificial or life fulfilment issues which we believe can be a causual factor in uterine cancer.
