My name is Tiarnan O’ Sullivan. I qualified as a medical herbalist in 2021 with the Plant Medicine School in Hollyfort following 5 years of study, during which I worked with some of the most experienced herbalists in the UK & Ireland. I operate my own herbal medicine business Mac Tire Apothecary & Herbal Clinic and I am also involved in several projects for growing medicinal and aromatic plants in Ireland.

My approach with the plants involves an understanding of their medicine and their character from a scientific approach, but also from an energetic perspective. Herbs are capable of treating a great array of ailments on all levels; physiological, mento-emotional and spiritual. There is a robust body of scientific research supporting their effectiveness as medicines, but also thousands of years of stories in traditional cultures which share how we have healed and evolved with the plants for as long as we have been here.

In a consultation we will have an in-depth discussion of your health and well being. I will approach current issues going on for you with the highest standards of care and professionalism, using diagnostic techniques from western orthodox medicine, traditional chinese medicine and other healing systems. Following this, herbs are prescribed in the form of a tincture, tea blend or topical treatment and patients are followed up with after 3-4 weeks to check in on their treatment progress and to make adjustments to the medicine if needed. Nutritional and lifestyle guidance are also given to support the treatment.

Some of the conditions very commonly and successfully treated with herbal medicine include:

–  Headaches and migraines

– Depression, anxiety, and sleep disturbance

– Asthma, sinusitis and recurrent infections

– Poor circulation, varicose veins and angina

– Digestive problems, constipation, and IBS

– Irregular periods, PMS and menopausal symptoms

–  Infertility and fertility support

– Recurrent cystitis and prostate enlargement

– Arthritis and fibromyalgia

–  Auto-immune issues

– Skin problems such as eczema, psoriasis and acne

–  Helping to balance energetic patterns of disharmony

Herbal medicine is also excellent for optimising our general health as a part of self-care, working with the plants in this way is a part of who we really are.
