About Rachel Hull
Hi. I'm Rachel Hull, Herbalist and owner of The Urban Herbalist in East Geelong. I'm passionate about helping people feel their best with support from herbal medicines, whole foods and lifestyle suggestions (with a strong influence from Ayurveda). You'll find that, although I'm health conscious, I am not extreme or obsessive with my suggestions. I have a lovely, home based clinic and garden, which I would love you to visit one day. However, with the current uncertainty around coronavirus, I have decided to run ONLINE consultations only for now. We can meet Online (or telephone) & remedies can be posted to you (or picked up from the clinic). I look forward to supporting you and meeting you (virtually) soon.

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.
