Western Herbal Medicine

Natural, safe and effective therapy

David Bescoby


Western herbal medicine embraces a long tradition of utilising the inherent therapeutic properties of plants, practiced within the context of modern clinical medicine. Herbalists focus their attentions on the correct functioning of the whole person and use the complex pharmacological actions of medicinal plants to normalise and optimise physiological processes. Here at Saxon Therapy I aim to provide patients with an enlightened, caring and supporting environment within which to address their health needs.

Safe & Effective

Herbal medicine can be particularly appropriate in addressing complex conditions of chronic ill-health manifesting as joint pains, bowel complaints, hormonal and skin problems and allergic conditions. Plant-based medicines are gentle in their action, well tolerated, rarely exhibit side-effects and can usually be combined with orthodox medications.


Initial consultations last approximately 1 hour and aim to fully explore the nature of your health condition and review your medical history, diet and overall wellbeing. Simple physical examinations may also be undertaken. At the end of the consultation I will offer an opinion and discuss treatment strategies and options. Follow-up consultations aim to monitor and review treatment and typically occur at 4-8 week intervals.

You can make and appointment in the shop, or by phoning Saxon Therapy on 01502 717 417. Alternatively you can contact me directly on 07941 391923. See my website for further details:
