The number of Consultations will depend on your personal circumstances and health goals.

Initial Consultation – 45 mins

  • We discuss your health challenges and I will provide feedback and recommendations.
  • Herbal Medicines are tailored to the individual and herbs work on multiple manifestations when combined.
  • Herbal Remedies are sent within 48 hours of ordering.

Follow up Consultation –  30 mins

  • A follow-up consultation will be required in most cases. This will take place approximately 3-4 weeks after the first consultation. This will include a discussion on how you are progressing, how you feel the herbs are working for you.

Q: What is herbal medicine?
A: Herbal Medicines have been used around the world for millennia. It was the original and natural medicine in all cultures.

Q: How does herbal medicine work?
A: Herbs help the body to heal itself rather than just suppressing the symptoms. A classic example is taking Milk Thistle which improves the functioning of the liver, which will then be better at detoxing the body.

Q: What can herbal medicine help?
A: Any herbal remedy that is prepared is individualised to the person, rather than just the symptoms they present with, supporting people in the management of a myriad of health complaints.

Q: Should I keep taking herbal remedy if I am ill?

A: If you become unwell,  you should stop taking the herbs as advised on the preparation sheet which has been provided with your herbal medicine.

Q: Can you post my herbal remedy to me?

A: Jenny, as a rule, does not send herbal remedies in the post, with the only exception being an emergency.

Q: Can I order herbs and collect them from the Clinic, without an appointment?

A: Jenny cannot prescribe herbs without an initial consultation.

Q: The herbal remedy has caused some digestive distress, should I stop taking them?

A: Herbs can occasionally cause mild digestive upset. If this happens, halve your dose and take half an hour after meals. In the unlikely event that you develop any of the following symptoms, stop taking the herbs: severe abdominal pain, persistent nausea or diarrhoea, vomiting. Note that these later symptoms are very rare.

Q: What does a consultation with Jenny consist of?

A: Jenny takes a patients full health history to begin with. I will have already reviewed any blood test results or diagnostic tests you have done. Jenny prescribes a herbal tincture on the first visit and only does acupuncture if required.

Q: How do I pay Jenny?

A: You can pay by card, bank transfer or cash. There is also an ATM in Londis and Centra around the corner from the clinic.

Q: How do I contact Jenny?

A: You can contact Jenny in several ways. You can call the office on 087 097 9711 or you can send an email to info@jennymcelvaney.com.

Q: How long do we hold onto your Personal Records?

A: I only hold onto completed Questionnaire Forms and Medical Records for 18 months. If you haven’t already advised me to hold your information, please fill out a new Pre-Visit Form per client on your return visit if over the 18 months since your visit.

True health is not a quick fix.

It is something that must be worked on, especially when you are trying to change life-long habits. Because of this, I like to see my clients several times so that I can make sure you are staying on the path you chart for yourself.

There is no exact science to this method of healing, it all depends on you, and how dedicated you are to working on your own healing.

*As a courtesy, please provide a 48 hour notice if you wish to cancel. You will be billed for missed appointments.
