About Myrobalan Clinic

Myrobalan Clinic is a clinic of herbal medicine run by me, Lucy Jones.  Having been based in Cattistock, West Dorset for many years, the clinic has now moved to Castle Cary. I am a registered medical herbalist who studied Tibetan Medicine as well as Western Herbal Medicine.

I use the principles of Tibetan Medicine to understand each person’s health imbalance and I then prescribe western herbs in an individually formulated prescription. Each person is unique and so it is quite right that treatment should be tailored to the individual rather than the name of a generic health condition.

It is always the aim to understand the root cause of ill health and address that, so that healing is sustainable in the long term.  Just treating the symptoms doesn’t prevent the underlying condition returning.

A wide range of conditions can be treated successfully with herbal medicine and these include cardiovascular issues such as high blood pressure, varicose veins and palpitations; skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema; digestive disorders such as gastric reflux, gastric ulcer, irritable bowel syndrome and colitis; stress related conditions such as anxiety, panic attacks, post traumatic stress disorder and depression; hormonal issues such as period pain, heavy periods, endometriosis, premenstrual syndrome, polycystic ovary syndrome, infertility issues and imbalances associated with menopause; urinary tract problems such as recurring cystitis; respiratory system imbalances including poor resistance to coughs and colds, asthma and hayfever, chronic mucus and lingering coughs,  nasal polyps; long standing chronic infections such as Lymes disease and chronic fatigue syndrome.  These are just a selection of the issues with which patients come to the clinic for treatment. Please see the testimonials page of the website for further information.

Many patients choose herbal medicine over allopathic medication but I am happy to offer treatment to those who wish to continue taking allopathic treatment in conjunction with herbal medicine. In this latter case it is important that all current medications are brought to the consultation so that an appropriate treatment regime is designed to avoid herb:drug interactions.

I believe that many people have forgotten what it feels like to be truly well.  Life is too precious to waste feeling run down and lacking in vitality. An investment in your long term health could be the best thing you ever did.

    Any specific reason for picking Myrobalan in your name? 🙂

    Bhaisajyaguru perhaps?

    Warmest regards!

    • Hi Larry, Yes because Myrobalan holds a special place in the Tibetan Pharmacopaea and the Medicine Buddha is depicted holding a sprig of Myrobalan 🙂 Thank you for visiting my blog.
