A full appointment is an opportunity to discuss any health concerns in full, review test results, check blood pressure, blood glucose, or Lena can write a script for a blood test if further tests are required. A plan to help get your health back on track can then be formulated which may include herbal supplements, nutritional supplements, liquid herbal tinctures and adjustments to dietary & lifestyle. An appointment with Lena gets you access to a range of specialist 'practitioner only' supplements which are only available through natural practitioner prescription to ensure safety and efficacy.

Lena is a qualified natural health practitioner with a diploma in clinical herbal medicine through the Canterbury College of Natural Medicine and a bachelor in Applied Health majoring in Complementary Medicine through the University of New England in Australia. Lena is also the current president of Natural Fertility NZ and an accredited fertility educator. Natural Fertility NZ is a national charity that trains natural fertility educators around NZ and provides material, support and education around natural family planning and fertility.

A consultation with Lena typically involves a discussion around health concerns or goals, a thorough health history, relevant health checks such as blood pressure, blood glucose or blood tests. Once the situation has been assessed a health plan can be drawn up which will often include herbal supplements, or tinctures, nutritional supplements, dietary and lifestyle advice.

Herbal medicine at the Windsor clinic is based on botany and biochemistry as each plant contains naturally occurring chemicals. When we consume that plant material we digest and absorb some of these chemicals and the chemicals we absorb will usually affect the body in some way. 

"Just like coffee many herbs contain chemicals which  affect the way our body works."

In general most herbs will have fewer and less serious side effects compared to allopathic drugs. Herbal medicines contain much lower doses of the active ingredient, compared to allopathic medicines so they will often need to be taken for a longer period of time to have a similar effect.

Our clinical herbalist will often avoid treating just the symptoms of a disease. For example if you suffer from constipation she will endeavour to discover the root cause of the constipation. If the constipation is found to be caused by underactive thyroid then Lena will suggest herbs and nutritional supplements that will assist with improving your thyroid function and therefore help resolve the constipation. By treating the root cause you are more likely to get long term relief and complete resolution of the illness. 

Herbal medicine is gaining more and more support as scientific evidence of its efficacy grows. Its popularity has caused a boom in the natural health supplement industry resulting in a huge variety in the quality of these supplements and advice that goes with them. Lena is often available on the shop floor for questions about which product would be best suited for your needs and for advice on quality. For a more in depth consulation with Lena to discuss any health concerns you can also book an appointment.
