When the first signs of perimenopause arrived I knew that I should do something to help myself.
My Mum had a really rough time with her transition to menopause and ended up taking HRT which has never been on my list of acceptable treatments for many reasons.
My first port of call was always going to be Andrea, who is the gentlest, kindest and most generous of medical practitioners that I have ever come across.
Within two weeks of starting to take my herbal medicine my symptoms were reducing, fewer hot flushes and a much more even mood, after about three weeks, I considered myself to be symptom free; long may it continue. If anything changes I will of course reach out to Andrea again, but right now all is well in my world and I will keep taking my herbs.
Chronic illness a year on..
You have been so extraordinarily good with me, giving me absolutely top-notch, end-to-end, science-based advice. You have also been gently supportive and encouraging in the most warmly humanistic way imaginable. I just can’t thank you enough. The comparison with where I am today and where I was just a year ago is truly breath-taking. Thank you!
Although I shall be in touch with occasional emails, I don’t plan on making a further appointment for the foreseeable future, but it is enormously reassuring to know that you are in the neighbourhood and I can call on you for further sessions when the need arises. Thanks for everything.
I’ve lost count of the different specialists who have tried to help me alleviate the varied symptoms of Sjögren’s Syndrome – and the accompanying pain and discomfort.
Relief from it all came only if one accepted unwelcome side effects from prescription pain killers, whose effectiveness diminished over time.
Seeing Andrea has enabled me to change all that. Her methodical approach, drawing on a mix of hard science and ancient lore, has been holistic in the sense that she treated me, not my illness.
I was no longer being treated as one more Sjögren’s sufferer, but someone who also had very specific vitamin deficiencies (discovered for the first time in spite of folders of medical tests results collected over the years), and functional inabilities to derive benefit from an already healthy diet.
Andrea’s elimination diet (I discovered that too much cheese and too many sweet things were physically hurting me – and causing me light and sound intolerances), the resulting tweaks to my diet and a change of daily vitamins – all these have given me back what I lost when this first started.
The results have been so much more than I expected. Plus the process of getting to the bottom of this has been a pleasure. Andrea listens so much more than most doctors one sees, explains like an ideal teacher and operates with more grace and kindness than one could distill from a typical hospital.
I cannot recommend her highly enough. Oh, and I am now off the heavy painkillers I used to be prescribed.
Thank you, Andrea. Thank you.
“After suffering several outbreaks of very painful skin eruptions over a period of about 18 months which doctors could not explain but prescribed antibiotics for, I went to see Andrea.
She recognised the skin problem as shingles and prescribed herbs which stopped further outbreaks. It has been almost 2 years now without any further occurrence.
Andrea also helped diagnose a severe vitamin deficiency which has now been remedied.
I am so lucky to know such a special, caring healer. Thank you Andrea”. JB – Lancing, West Sussex
