Hello, thanks for stopping by. My name is Hannah Sylvester, I’m a Lincoln-based Medical Herbalist and I look forward to helping you to make a positive difference to your health, with herbal medicine.
That might involve seeing me for health consultations – clinic or home visit – and herbal medicine treatment; or it may take the form of teaching you how to make different preparations that you can use within the home, or even helping you create a beautiful, sensory, medicinal foraging garden. Everyone’s needs are different, just as every-body is different, and so part of the beauty of working with herbs is the ability to uniquely tailor the approach, and herbs, to each and every person.
I love working with people, from all walks of life, who are looking to improve their health and quality of life. For some, that may mean looking deeper at long-term, often complex health issues and working long-term to resolve the physical, constitutional or emotional patterns and that have developed over time. For others, this may mean addressing acute or periodic ill-health, and supporting the body to repair itself and providing you with relief. Alternatively, you might be seeking knowledge, via hands-on workshops, walks and talks on how to address minor home-treatable health issues when they arise.
Herbal medicine (or phytotherapy) is the oldest form of medicine in the world, and drawing my knowledge from both the traditional use of herbs and current scientific research, I use mainly European / Western whole plant preparations (leaves, flowers, roots, seeds and fruits), rather than isolated extracts of plant parts, within my largely organic herbal dispensary . It is an effective treatment for many conditions, including osteoarthritis, premenstrual syndrome (PMS), irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), back pain, functional dyspepsia, indigestion, mild to moderate depression, acute infections including rhino-sinusitis, the common cold, influenza, and many more. Linking my deep understanding of plants, with my holistic and medical comprehension of the human body and orthodox medication, I can therefore help to support you along your path to better health.
So if you’re ready to make that commitment to taking an active role in improving your health and well-being, and enter into a supportive and empowering health partnership, it would be great to work with you, and I look forward to you getting in touch, even if you just want to ask a few questions at this stage.
In the meantime, or if you’re not quite ready to take that step yet, there’s lots more information on what else I do, how I work, reviews from those that have visited me for treatment and articles you might find interesting, on the rest of my website, so do enjoy taking a browse. I’ll look forward to meeting you in the future.
Wishing you good health,
