Redouane Lafhel has had a lifelong interest in health, and natural medicine. He has worked for many years with herbs and herbal medicine, even before becoming a practitioner; and has worked with both the longest established and fastest growing herb suppliers in London.
Before being well & truly on his herbal path, although the love of herbs and nature’s medicines was already there, Lafhel was intending to study pharmacy . When Lafhel personal respiratory health issue worsened, and He discussed the potential side effects of his medication with his pharmacist colleague, He decided there was nothing to lose in going to see a herbalist. To this day, Lafhel has never needed to look back; and then also sought help with hayfever. On seeing the results, and personally experiencing the benefits of herbal medicine on his own health, He followed the path of studying Health Sciences: Herbal Medicine.
Lafhel dispenses his own herbal remedies, to be sure of the quality of the products he passes on to those who visit for a consultation, and sources organic wherever possible.
He also continues to further develop his knowledge of herbs and health through seminars presenting the latest research, to aid continuing professional development, and can sometimes be found giving talks on herbal medicine to bring about awareness of the benefits of its use.
Medical herbalism, sometimes also called phytotherapy, uses pure natural plant remedies to promote health and well-being. Herbs have been used medicinally for thousands of years and modern scientific research increasingly supports their effectiveness and studies their safety.
The herbalist deals with a wide range of health conditions in every age group. Herbal medicines are selected mainly to strengthen or stimulate the body’s normal functions and so help the body heal itself. Unlike most conventional medicines which usually have a single ingredient, herbs contain many ingredients and so may support the body’s health in several ways at once.
Herbal medicine is the most ancient form of medicine, steeped in intriguing history, with up to the minute scientific research to back how effective it is in treating a vast amount of complex conditions. With scientific research, more is known and understood today about the phytochemical constituents of plants, and how those constituents interact physiologically, in the body, and with pharmaceutical drugs
Medical Herbalists are trained to carry out full consultations on patients. The first consultation lasts approximately an hour, and questions will be asked about all systems of the body to get a picture of a patient’s general health. This is in order to get to the root of what could be causing a presenting health complaint, and also provides the information required to treat the body holistically as a whole.
Medical Herbalists are not doctors, but are also trained in Clinical Skills and Differential Diagnosis as a doctor would be, and have the time to spend longer with a patient than a GP would.
Practitioners of herbal medicine commonly see many conditions seen by GPs. These regularly include high blood pressure, cardiovascular system/circulatory disorders, digestive complaints, insomnia, anxiety, asthma, allergies, skin conditions, PCOS, menopause symptoms, infertility, IBS, thyroid disorders, impotence, fibroids, arthritis, low immunity, cystitis and recurring infections, amongst many others.
Whilst orthodox medicine has something to offer most people at some point, herbal medicine can often offer a remedy to many conditions with much lesser chance of side effects. Herbal medicines, being derived from natural plant products, are made up of a wide number of constituents, which can treat different areas of the body at once. This differs to pharmaceutical drugs which tend to focus on one specific symptom.
