Herbalism is not a one and done method. Your body’s imbalance was a long time coming and it may take months to resolve chronic issues that have proven intractable by addressing only the suppression of symptoms. Herbs are not a panacea–one herb that worked for your friend may not work for you, or at least in the same way. Some clients see immediate results–others take months and some require reworking the basic plan. A realistic time frame of working with me is 3 to 6 months or longer.
