News and Commonly Asked Questions

Consult fees and script costs: From 1 August 2021 consult fees have GST added. Prices quoted are now GST inclusive. No price change to script costs (client discount is continued) – access to quality natural medicine has been prioritised.  

Functional and blood testing: All tests require a consultation (interpretation time is often lengthy and requires your background health).  

Acute care service: free 5-minute phone consult for existing clients needing acute remedy prescriptions as supplied by Angela’s herbal dispensary or her online suppliers (eg for coughs, colds, sleep, etc). Queries outside of this are referred to a consultation or charged on a time basis. 

Covid vaccine: Sorry I do not have the answers that may influence your decision. However a recovery stand-down time post vaccination is recommended prior to bookings so that any potential side-effects are not confused with starting a new treatment. Immune support is recommended in advance of all vaccinations, including sleep/lifestyle, diet and supplements. 

Bookings: Recommended to book 1-2 weeks in advance.

Cancellations: Minimum 24-hour notice to assist with rebooking someone else. Less notice will incur a 50% cancellation fee. For protection of all, face-to-face consults cannot be done if infectious (however you can opt for a Zoom booking).
