Joseph Nolan left his native New York City to study at the Scottish School of Herbal Medicine where he earned his BSc Honours Degree in Herbal Medicine in 2010. As a father and husband, he has vested interests in men's health; male and female fertility; ante- and postnatal, babies' and children's health. In addition to his regular herbal medicine clinic, Joe also runs our popular Parent and Child Clinic and patients of all ages can make appointments with him on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and alternate Saturdays.
Herbal medicine is a holistic discipline and botanical treatment requires consideration of the many influences on wellness and illness. Plant medicines, with their subtle varied chemistries, are ideal remedies for dynamic and complex problems that can beset our health.
With every patient, Joseph looks at present symptoms and conditions, past medical history, mental and emotional state, family medical history, diet, environmental and lifestyle factors, and often carries out pertinent examinations such as taking blood pressure. Afterwards, he will prescribe herbs in tea, tincture, or another form, and may suggest supplements, exercises, and dietary or lifestyle alterations aimed at improving your condition.

He will then form an individualised treatment plan for your child. Joe uses gentle herbs with children and babies to help restore the child’s natural health.
