Welcome to the website of Christine Herbert
I am a herbalist, iridologist and allergy therapist working in Norfolk, UK. I have been practising as a therapist since 1997 when I qualified as a herbalist, natural healer and iridologist (HNHI). I am a member, and past council member, of the Association of Master Herbalists (MAMH), and co-edit our professional journal. I am also an Associate member of the British Naturopathic Association. Together with three other herbalist friends, I organised the annual gathering for herbalists and herbal students - Herbfest www.herbfestuk.co.uk for seven years. Previously I worked as a biomedical scientist for the NHS for 18 years in haematology where I gained a Fellowship of the Institute of Biomedical Sciences (FIBMS). I also worked for the Citizens Advice Bureau for a few years, and completed a Bachelor of Arts degree in Environmental Studies (BAHons).
I have completed studies in flower remedy therapy which I add to treatment where appropriate, and have studied Ayurvedic (Indian) and Traditional Chinese herbal medicine. I gained a diploma in Allergy Therapy in 2004 with The British Institute of Allergy and Environmental Therapy and have found this aspect of therapy to be very useful for most of my clients.
Currently I practise mostly from home, seeing clients at my home based clinic where I also have an extensive herbal dispensary to hand. I have found my therapies to be very effective in treating many health problems, especially those related to the digestive tract and to hormonal problems, however I have yet to find a health problem that cannot at least be eased.
I have volunteered since 2011 at a centre for people with cancer in East Anglia http://starthrowers.org.uk/ where I advise on diet, herbs and supplements.
Many of the herbs I use are very easily grown in this country as I tend to prefer native herbs. The herbs I buy are from reputable companies who care about their products and are, wherever possible, organic or even biodynamically grown.
