Gannon Herbal Practice
I'm a medical herbalist helping people to take control of their health and their lives naturally.
As a medical herbalist, finding the root cause of any condition is very important for long term benefits. I always treat the individual in a holistic way and not just the condition. It is a privilege to be able to help people to overcome health issues and find ease on physical, mental and emotional levels.
I was introduced to Herbal Medicine while I was in Morocco in 2001, and it was a light bulb moment for me. It combined everything that I loved - people, medicine, and nature. I felt like it was calling me. I loved (and still do) the holistically approach; treating the whole person and not just the disease. The complexity of the herbs and how powerful they are was also of great interest to me. When I found out that it was possible for me to not just learn about it, but to become a practitioner of it, I didn't let anything stop me. So against the odds, I took that step of going to university and left my full-time job. It was a risky move but I'm so glad that I followed the calling and I'm passionate about. I have seen, and continue to see, the amazing impact it has in people's lives, life changing, just like it has been for me.
Most of my clients have never been to a medical herbalist before, at first they are apprehensive, some are excited, but all say they are pleasantly surprised by the dept I go to understanding them, their health issues and their health goals. They love being able to ask lots of questions and begin to feel in control of their health and their lives once again.
This is not necessarily a quick fix, but a long term one. It will change your approach to your health and possibly to your life as often there is a story behind the story. You are in control of your health and you are the expert on how you feel, regardless of what people tell you or tests results show. I advise, I prescribe, I make long term and short term goals but ultimately it is up to you to take on board what has been advised and to take the prescription. With this in mind, question everything and don't be afraid to say if something is not working out for you. I'm here to help you and be on your side.
