Purchasing and additional information
All herbs are 45 euro per bottle. Herbs are sold in a miniumum of 2 bottles at a time or one month supply. You will need a minimum of one month to see a real effect in chronic conditions, although if the herbal tonic is right for you, you should expect to see some improvement of your condition within the 2 weeks. Postage and packaging is 10 euro for 2 bottles to Ireland and UK. As a rough guide, I say for every year you have had a condition you need a month of treatment. Please contact me to place your order and for postage rates to other countries, I will send you an invoice via PayPal. Herbs are posted on receipt of payment and delivery is 3-5 days.
All herbal tinctures come in 200ml bottles, taken at either 5ml 3 x day or 7 1/2 ml 2 x day. One bottle taken at this therapeutic dose will last 2 weeks. All herbs are either 1 in 1s or 1 in 2s meaning they are 1 part herb in 1 or 2 parts liquid respectively, as opposed to other herbs on the Irish and UK market which are either 1 in 3s or 1 in 5s. Therefore my tinctures are at least 2 x greater in strength and effectiveness. They are also organic or wildcrafted where available and I do not use endangered species.
Whilst the Carahealth Herbal Tincture range has been formulated to have no negative drug/herb interactions. If you are on medication, pregnant or breastfeeding, I recommend getting expert naturopathic advice on herbal contraindications and drug/herb interactions by booking a Skype consult. I accept no resposibility if you self-prescribe my herbs whilst taking medication or are pregnant or breastfeeding (although my Carahealth Partus Prep and Carahealth Birth Aid can be self-prescribed as they are specific for pregnancy). I can make a herbal tincture specifically for you that is safe in pregnancy, breastfeeding or if you are on medication. Or perhaps you are not on medications but would like a consult to ensure your self-prescription is correct and would like advice on diet, lifestyle and supplements.
