About Rachel Hull & The Clinic
Hi. I'm Rachel Hull, Herbalist and owner of The Urban Herbalist (Thomson/East Geelong, Victoria, Australia). I'm passionate about helping people feel their best with support from herbal medicines, whole foods and lifestyle suggestions. I'm a Western Herbalist with a Health Science degree, who is also influenced by Ayurveda. You'll find that, although I'm health conscious, I am not extreme or obsessive with my suggestions.
As is the case for many of us, Covid-19 has impacted the way I run my business. All of my consultations are now conducted ONLINE, using a system called Coviu (a form of telehealth). The good news is that you do not need to download any software at your end to participate in a consultation with me, although it is recommended that you use the most up to date version of Chrome browser. I do miss seeing people in person, however, consulting online means I can meet with people from all over Australia. Remedies can be posted to you (or picked up locally from the clinic). I look forward to supporting you and meeting you soon. Although online is preferred (so that we can see each other), telephone consultations are also an option.

Herbal Medicine Training
In 2018, I graduated from the Southern School of Natural Therapies (SSNT) with a Bachelor of Health Science (Western Herbal Medicine).
My training in Western Herbal Medicine included health sciences such as: anatomy, physiology, pathophysiology, biochemistry, nutrition and pharmacology; along with detailed studies on individual herbs and how they work in the human body. I am also strongly influenced by Ayurveda (The Science of Life), which is a very thorough system of healthcare devised in India (with a written history of at least 5000 years). I studied Ayurveda almost 20 years ago, and am currently participating in a Graduate Certificate in Ayurveda (for health professionals). I am fully insured and a practicing member of the Naturopaths and Herbalists Association of Australia (NHAA).
I do understand that it is a big commitment to visit a new health practitioner. I can say that I absolutely love getting to know my clients and will do my very best to support you through any phase of life you find yourself in, or any health issues you are dealing with. I won't make false claims of magical cures but I will do my very best to support you with herbal medicines, diet (as appropriate for your constitution and situation), and supportive daily and seasonal routines.
