Dried Reishi mushroom herb (Ganoderma lucidum)

Take 30g (half the packet) and decoct slowly, just at boiling point but so the water is not quite bubbling, for 2 hours or more in 1.5 litres of water. This is best done in a slow cooker set to "low". Turn off the heat when liquid has reduced down to no less than half a litre. Let it cool and then strain. This decoction will keep if refrigerated for up to 4 days. The recommended dosage is 3g 3x per day, which translates into drinking one tenth of your finished decoction three times per day. You can reheat and drink hot if you prefer, and this may enhance absorption. If you follow these instructions one 60g packet should be enough for one week, with you needing to make the decoction twice - on the first day and on the fourth day.

Online Purchasing

Following a directive from our Professional Association, the National Institute of Medical Herbalists, we are no longer able to supply herbal medicines directly to the public without a prior consultation. This is in line with the Human Medicines Regulations (2012), which includes the EU Traditional Herbal Medicine Products Directive (2005), transposed into UK legislation. This effectively means that you can only purchase herbal products that have received a licence from the MHRA (average cost @£50,000 per licence!), which firmly excludes the bulk of a professional herbalist's herbal dispensary. The only exemption to this directive is, as the MHRA state,

"if you are a herbal practitioner, you don't need a licence to supply herbal medicines you create on your premises to patients following one-to-one consultations".

In order to operate within the law we have implemented a gateway so that only people who have had a consultation, either directly or via skype or telephone, and other practising qualified Medical Herbalists may register and have access to online sales. We sincerely regret any inconvenience this may cause, although recognise that it is primarily in the interests of public safety. It is safer and more effective to use herbal medicines under professional guidance. If you wish to find out more about our herbal medicines, or to book a consultation please contact us by phone or email.
