Welcome to the web-site of Ciara O’ Meara, Medical Herbalist.

Western Herbal medicine treatment is directed not just at the symptoms of illness, but also at the underlying cause.

A consultation involves a thorough case-history taking, and may involve taking blood pressure, listening to the lungs or other appropriate examinations.Further tests may be indicated at this point.

Medical reports and/or blood test will be interpreted. Medical Herbalists are trained to identify any potential interactions between orthodox (drugs) and herbal medicines and to know when a condition is best referred to a doctor or another therapist.

As a herbalist I regularly come accross very complex cases as many patients will have found that the conventional approach has provided no relief or recovery. By this I mean a 'gut person' for your tummy, a 'rheumatologist' for your aches and pains, and nobody looking at the whole picture - maybe what your putting into your gut is making your joints ache ! (yes its possible, very possible).

This is where the benefits of a medical herbalist come into thier own, you get a highly skilled practitioner who looks at all your bodily systems and figures out where the  problem is.

Treatment plans are a collaboration between the patient and the  therapist in achieveing a defined goal, this inevitably requires change, often these are dietary and/or lifestyle changes.

         "Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks
                                        of changing himself"

Herbal medicines have an excellent safety record in trained hands. When individually prescribed and combined by a trained medical herbalist they are more deeply effective than over-the-counter remedies.

I have appeared on 3 seasons of 'The Afternoon Show' on RTE1 television discussing herbal remedies and preparation of home-made medicines.

I have also contributed to radio shows on Today FM, 98 FM, Tipp FM on topics related to herbal medicine. I am available for talks and written contributions in the community please contact me via email or phone.
