About me

Welcome to Billericay Herbal Medicine - at present I am taking online consultations!

I am Heidi, a fully qualified medical herbalist usually practising in Billericay and Chelmsford, Essex. However, as I'm now taking patients on Zoom, I can see people who are less local - and once I'm back in clinic I will continue to see people online who are too far away or don't feel comfortable coming out.

Medical herbalists approach illness in a holistic way - we look for the underlying cause of the ailment rather than just getting rid of the symptoms. No two patients are the same and I spend considerable time getting to know the person so I can prescribe a bespoke mixture of herbs.

Please have a look at my website and contact me if you have any queries - I look forward to meeting you and helping you with your health!

Further information

Herbs can be effective in many conditions normally treated by your GP or over the counter at your local pharmacy. They can be especially helpful in chronic (long-term) conditions. I certainly don’t believe they are an alternative to drugs in severe or life-threatening conditions but I am more than happy to work alongside your consultant/GP to see if we can help your general health or ease side effects.

For example:

Digestion: irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), heartburn/reflux, constipation, stomach ulcers, Crohn’s and ulcerative colitis;
Skin: eczema, psoriasis, acne;
Allergies/respiratory: lung issues, hayfever, asthma, bronchitis, coughs/colds, sinusitis;
Energy/fatigue/wellness: recovery from illness, insomnia, ME, post viral fatigue, “always getting ill”, staying in tip top condition for sport, work, studying or life in general!
Emotional/nervous system: Stress, migraine, headaches, depression, anxiety, Parkinsons, memory issues, "brain fog";
Hormones: type 2 diabetes, thyroid issues, BPH (enlarged prostate), PMT, painful/heavy/irregular periods, menopause, PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome), urinary tract infections, fertility, enodmetriosis;
Joints/bones/muscles: Arthritis (rheumatoid and osteo-), sports injuries, tendon/ligament issues, Lupus (SLE), ankylosing spondylitis, gout, fibromyalgia;
Cancer support: nausea, sleep issues, skin reactions from radiotherapy, support during/after chemo;
Heart and circulation: high blood pressure and cholesterol, varicose veins, some heart conditions, “poor circulation”;

...and many more!

If you have been diagnosed with or suspect you may have a pre-existing medical condition you should consult your GP for advice, diagnosis and treatment and always inform your health professional before starting any alternative or additional therapies, treatments or making any major changes in your diet or exercise programme.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a therapist's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the therapist to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
