Cristina Cromer graduated as a Medical Herbalist in 2003, and she has been practicing in Brixton ever since. Her interest and involvement with plants goes back into childhood, and she has always had an interest in how we get sick and how we become well again.
She has a particular interest in the the way our emotions can affect our health and wellbeing; she works to promote recovery and wellness in her patients by paying attention to lifestyle, diet, sleep, energy levels and stressors as well as the presenting complaint.
She is thorough, thoughtful, kind and patient, but as a native Londoner and long-time resident of Brixton, she also understands the attractions and distractions of urban life.
A medical herbalist is trained in diagnostics as well as medicinal use of plant-based medicines. People consult with medical herbalists for everything from IBS and eczema to more serious and debilitating conditions. They aim to treat the underlying causes as well as symptoms, so treatment can continue for several months after the initial symptoms have abated. And there are many people see their herbalist once or twice a year, perhaps as the seasons change, for a general service and to keep things ticking over nicely.
Cristina achieved a BSc. (Hons) at the University of Westminster and continues studying today. She teaches and holds workshops and seminars at entry level and for university students.
