Jeremy M. Griffiths BA, DBTh, MIRCH
After years of study with the British based IRCH (International Register of Consultant Herbalists and Homoeopaths) I graduated as a medical herbalist. I have been practising professionally since 2003 and have also given presentations and conducted herb walks for herbalist students, my professional peers and the public alike, as well as tutoring final year herbalist students. I am a regular contributor of articles to The Journal of Natural Medicine.
I take a holistic approach to the development and application of herbal remedies…..Seeing herbs as more than their biochemical constituents, but as embodying their own nature and temperament
Herbal Medicine and Bach Flower Remedies (also some other flower remedies).
The Green Man Herbal Apothecary is based on the old Apothecary shop, where the individual may consult with me and gain access to remedies for both acute and chronic conditions.
The strength of my approach lies in taking the time to fully listen to your case.
Chronic conditions are treated through consultation and a holistic approach that takes into consideration the factors that make up the human condition such as diet, lifestyle and emotional blocks. I acknowledge dis-ease as an individual expression that is best treated by balancing those aspects and resolving the underlying cause, rather than merely suppressing symptoms.
Remedies for acute conditions may also be accessed through me after a brief consultation. These are available during my Drop In hours.
. A large part of the treatment is achieved through the application from a range of about 120, mostly western, herbs, taking into consideration not only their biochemical constituents, but also their nature, temperament and character in respect of the individual patient.
Herbs are administered in the form of tinctures, capsules, creams, ointments, syrups and dried herbal mixtures for infusions or decoctions.
Bach Flower Remedies are also employed where unresolved emotional states impede recovery.
An initial consultation takes up to around 2 hours. Subsequent consultations are about an hour.
The depth and severity of the condition will determine the length of treatment, as will age, compliance and the individual constitution.
Drop In Days
During my Drop In hours I am available for advice and to consult and access remedies for acute conditions. These products include creams, ointments, balms, capsules, syrups, individual and blended herb teas and baths. I am also availabe to make a consultation appointment for more chronic conditions.
There is also a large selection of loose herbs availabe to purchase.....
These days, many people are turning to Bach Flower Remedies to restore emotional balance. However, where there is a need to combine multiple remedies the cost to purchase the individual mother tinctures can seem daunting given that you may never need these remedies again within their given shelf-life. For this reason I am happy to mix Bach Flower Remedies to your individual need, thus saving you excessive expense and waste.

"I cannot recommend Jeremy highly enough. I started working with him following a car accident in early 2018.
I always thought of myself as a highly self-aware and analytical person, and thus when I became ill following the car accident and my persisting symptoms were not sympathised with by my GP beyond telling me to, each time I went for help, 'rest as much as you think you need to' and 'come back in a couple of weeks' I was at a loss as to what I was failing to know about myself or do in order to heal.
Jeremy's consultation style as well as his knowledge of herbalism have been a revelation for me. I am certain that without his help I would not have been able to unlock my body intelligence and enable myself to heal and be empowered to not only heal from the acute pain caused by the accident, but also bring to light much older issues that were still living within me and underscoring my unconscious behaviours, persisting in causing me emotional and psychological grief and thus also periodically very disruptive physical manifestations of these.
As I write this I have a health of mind, body and spirit that I literally could not conceive of before, and a huge part of achieving that is because of Jeremy's guidance, talk therapy and techniques he taught me for improving my mental health, tincture formulation and knowledge of bach remedies.
Thank you so much Jeremy!"

"Mr. Griffiths takes a very holistic approach to treating people. He gives clear explanations as to how the mind and general demeanour can have adverse effects on health and how mind and body are linked when it comes to overall wellbeing.
He gives clear explanations of how the therapies will work and what to expect. I benefitted greatly from his treatments and would recommend him to anyone."

"I discovered Jeremy about 2.5yrs ago and i am so pleased that i did, as not only has he changed my health around but he has taught me to think of my ailment in a completely different way, which i am convinced has helped me overcome it.
I considered myself of suffering from IBS and it had gotten to the point that i was unable to leave my home for days at a time. In a nutshell, it took control of my life and became almost debilitating. I had been to the doctors and were told there was nothing they could do for me but that i was look at my diet and take over the counter preparations (which only masked the problem).
Jeremy taught me to not label myself but to look at my emotional well being as part of my healing process. It certainly has been quite a journey and i accepted that there would be setbacks throughout, but i realised that i was always progressing in the right direction. He looks at tackling the cause by going back to the beginning and not just focusing on the symptoms. It is an interesting and sensible approach of looking at ill health, because all problems have a beginning and that is the trigger.
Jeremy is patient and explains what is happening to your body throughout treatment. It has been a total eye opener for me. I consider myself to be open minded and embrace new ways of thinking, which certainly aided my transition to better health.
His tinctures are pleasant tasting and with commitment and perseverance i am pleased to say that i have overcome my situation (no labels :-)) and i now live a more carefree life.
Thanks goes out to Jeremy, whom i couldn't recommend enough."

"I was suffering from a sudden very itchy 'heat rash' on my arms, sometimes when carrying anything plastic, but otherwise with no explanation. Being interested in herbal remedies I consulted Jeremy, and became very interested in his teaching that an outward condition reflects what is wrong internally - and this needs to be treated by other means rather than the usual GP prescriptions which may only relieve what is external. With what he prescribed the 'rash' has not recurred and other benefits have accrued.
A broken bone and other illnesses will always need the doctor or hospital, but we should always consider the knowledge of what worked for our ancestors and explore other ways of treating ourselves.

"I was told about ‘The Green Man' (Jeremy) by a friend. She said, he has transformed her life.
The Initial consultation I felt apprehensive and unsure what to expect. At that time, I was feeling frustrated that my body was letting me down and that mainstream medicine was only treating my symptoms. I was feeling emotional and quite helpless. I felt I was in a downwards spiral.
My first consultation with Jeremy I felt listened to and importantly heard. My presenting symptoms were, blocked up nose, ears and chest. Asthma! I also have Thyroid issues. Last year my latest blood tests came back hypothyroid. Emotionally I felt flat and thinking back, totally fed up.
Over the months Jeremy gave me homework to do! Focusing on looking inwards at my emotions and re-evaluating my lifestyle and diet. He prescribed tinctures and Bach Flower Remedies. I also had a tea to help clear my lungs.
With Jeremy's help I came to realise some of unresolved emotional issues I had been pushing away rather than dealing with. Jeremy has a holistic approach utilising his knowledge as a medical herbalist and his ability to read and pick up on the spoken and the unspoken. Jeremy is non-judge mental; he is skillful at explaining, exploring, and encouraging on the journey back to health.
I have been attending consultations for 5 months. My latest thyroid bloods came back near normal. My blocked ears,nose and chest are clear. I feel I have left my past behind, (in a good way). reset and am moving forwards with bounce! I will not hesitate to return should the need arise. Wish I had found Jeremy years ago.
