Hi. I'm Rachel Hull, a Clinical Herbalist with a passion for helping women who are struggling with hormonal & nervous system fluctuations during times of transition. I love working with women who are interested in their physical & mental wellbeing; & who are motivated to do what's needed to start to feel great again. I combine traditional herbal knowledge, with health science, dietary & lifestyle support to help you feel your best.
Women have a range of unique health issues that change throughout the various phases of life. Thankfully herbalism has a long history of use in women's health, including with pre menstrual syndrome (PMS), menstrual discomfort, perimenopausal & menopausal symptoms, mood & sleep issues, among others. I have access to a lovely range of women's health herbs & would be honoured to support you.
Digestive problems, such as bloating, gas, cramping, gastritis, reflux etc are no fun! Thankfully, diet & lifestyle modifications, plus herbal medicines may relieve symptoms (& ideally address the cause). Some complex or long term conditions may also benefit from testing to investigate your gut ecosystem & the ways it may be impacting your health. This can be arranged if necessary, although we will always start with the basics first.
Mood & Energy
A certain amount of stress is perfectly normal and helps us develop resilience. Sometimes, however, we don't seem to bounce back from stressful events as quickly as we would like, or as quickly as we once did. Herbal medicine, prescribed by a qualified Herbalist, can be particularly helpful for acute anxiety, insomnia, low mood & fatigue.
What does healthy ageing or positive ageing mean to you? The Australian Psychological Association describes it as "the process of maintaining a positive attitude, feeling good about yourself, keeping fit and healthy, & engaging fully in life as you age”. Personalised herbal medicines, diet & lifestyle can play a role in helping all of us age gracefully. It's also an area I'm very passionate about & love helping others with.
