Consultation for Herbal Medicine with Patina Blakeney

Patina in the Broadstairs shop

A case history is taken initially face to face which usually lasts about one hour. Any follow-ups (usually 1/2 hour) depend on the condition being treated, with chronic cases requiring more regular checkups. Several herbs are then blended together when the best treatment has been decided.

Currently, all consultations are available by phone, Zoom, or Skype (Skype Name: patina.blakeney). Please note that online consultations can be done for follow-ups.  (Online is not available for children.)

You can expect confidentiality and professionalism; individually prescribed herbal medicines with clear instructions plus dietary and lifestyle advice.

I have studied: Botany, Chemistry, Anatomy & Physiology (to a high degree), Pathology, Symptomology, Pharmacognosy, Posology, Manufacturing, Differential Diagnosis, counselling, Research module, nutrition, History of herbal medicine, Aetiology/prognosis/management of Diseases, with yearly updates to keep my skills current.

It is advisable to bring any current medications and/or supplements to the first consultation.
