Katharine Locke BA BSc MNIMH

Katharine Locke, alias the Herbal Human, is a Medical Herbalist and gives in-person consultations at Kika.  She has been practising Natural Medicine for 25 years, training initially as a Reflexologist and Iridologist.  In 2006 she graduated from Middlesex University with a BSc in Herbal Medicine.  In 2014 she trained with Dr Natasha Campbell-McBride and became a Certified GAPS Practitioner (Gut and Psychology Syndrome – see www.gaps.me).

Katharine believes passionately in Natural Medicine for getting people back to good health and optimising their health for the future.  She works with diet and lifestyle – often small changes can make all the difference.  She gives individually-formulated herbal medicines where appropriate as this can speed up improvements.

Special interests:

Katharine works mainly with people who have these health issues:

Digestive or gut issues – anything however big or small.  Many people think it’s normal to live with digestive symptoms but this is not so!

Autism or Attention Deficity issues – dietary changes and herbal medicine can make life a lot easier for children and adults on the autistic spectrum.

Blood sugar issues – with so many people having Diabetes Type 2 nowadays, understanding the diet and lifestyle choices necessary after a diagnosis can enable a person to reverse that diagnosis in many cases.

Alzheimers and Parkinson’s Disease – there is much evidence that these conditions can be prevented and/or alleviated and/or delayed with lifestyle and dietary changes years in advance of the first symptoms.  It is never too early or too late to start thinking about this, and a skilled practitioner can teach you the best approaches for your individual situation and medical histoy.

Thank you so much for your time last week. Not only is this advice really helpful, you have such a lovely, emapthicmanner which put me at ease in sharing quite emotionally charged information with you.

You really have taken a lot o trouble, cae and time and that is a tonic in itself, also knowing that your advice is totally sound and knowledgeable.  I also appreciated your empathy and I also very much appreciated the reasons why things are good or bad  in the diet
