Welcome! I'm Iulia Barta and I am a Registered Medical Herbalist based in Kent, UK. I am also a Clinical Trainer for the Heartwood Institute and help mentor students as part of their training to become qualified medical herbalists. At Herbalist Natural Care we consult patients through in-depth video appointments over Zoom and offer herbal medicine and nutritional advice as well as provide bespoke herbal treatments, supplements and laboratory testing as needed.
I love my job as a Western medical herbalist. We combine traditional wisdom with the latest scientific research to help people with their health needs. Over the years we have had the pleasure of helping many people improve their (often chronic) health problems and feel happier in themselves when other approaches have not worked for them.
Our particular areas of interest include (but are not limited to) digestive problems, sleep issues, women's health, skin issues, autoimmune conditions and thyroid dysfunction. We also provide help for anxiety, stress, poor immunity, general wellbeing and much more. As a wise old man used to say, being a herbalist is like being a dating agency for people and plants. We help people meet the plants that suit them.
When the cause of your symptoms has not been identified yet or you wish to learn more about it, we also offer private lab testing (including functional medicine testing) for issues such as food intolerance, gliadin and gluten antibodies, Candida overgrowth, lactose intolerance, Helicobacter pylori, comprehensive stool tests and more.
Choosing a practitioner to help you on your health journey is a very personal decision. You're very welcome to book in for a free no-obligation 15min chat to discuss your needs and find out how we can help you.
