Khalda Mohammed BSc
Medical Herbalist in Chelsea
at Chelsea Natural Health Clinic, Fulham Rd, SW10.
Herbal medicine uses plants that have naturally occurring medicinal compounds with therapeutic effects on human physiology. The effectiveness of plants to treat ill health is continuously validated by pharmacological research and clinical trials.
Some health complaints that can be helped by herbal medicine include:
– digestive problems such as irritable bowel and indigestion
– menopausal symptoms
– muscular joint aches and pains
– mild to moderate depression
– some infections such as sinusitis
– common cold
– stress and sleep issues
– skin problems
– fatigue and low energy

The first appointment lasts about an hour and involves a detailed case history about the health complaint of the patient, past medical history, lifestyle, diet, allergies, body systems (respiratory, cardiovascular, digestive, nervous, musculoskeletal, urinary, gynaecological and skin) and past and current medications. The patient is requested to bring any medications including results of tests and investigations.
After the case history a physical examination is performed with consent from the patient. If necessary the patient may be referred to their GP for further checks.
A brief phone call is made before the initial consultation to see if herbal medicine will be suitable for the individual’s health problem. After a consultation the treatment is personalised to each individual. The aim is to optimise health with a holistic approach, to aid in self-healing by nourishing the mind, body and soul. Working with the individual, this is achieved by the use of whole plant medicines and advice on nutrition and lifestyle.
Follow-ups appointments will usually be two weeks after the first visit to review progress. Further appointments are spaced out at four to six week intervals. Thereafter a longer time is usually left between consultations.
Khalda has her own herbal dispensary and stocks mainly organic herbal medicine, from reputable UK herbal suppliers. Herbs prescribed under consultation are the safest way to use natural medicine alongside conventional drugs.
