Welcome to Namaste Herbal Healing

Natural Medicine for all ages and all complaints

My name is Mel Hornby. I am a practicing Medical Herbalist and I am a fully qualified member of the National Institute of Medical Herbalists.

Herbal medicine is the oldest known form of medicine and has been used for thousands of years to treat illness and restore good health.


Mel Hornby - Medical Herbalist at Namaste Herbal Healing


As a Medical Herbalist, I will combine the traditional use of herbs with modern scientific knowledge and research to create your very own individual herbal prescription which will not only treat your symptoms, but also the underlying cause of ill-health.

Herbal medicine offers a safe, gentle and effective approach to health care and aims to not only tackle your current complaints but also to improve your overall health. It is suitable for all, from the very young to the very old.

Happy Clients

Mel at Namaste has helped my teenage daughter by providing her with both medical and emotional support during a terrible 12 month period while she has been suffering with post viral syndrome.



I highly recommend Mel as a Holistic and Herbal Practitioner.

I have been seeing Mel on a healing basis for a couple of years now.

I have consulted Mel twice over the last 3 years for help relieving IBS and joint pain both for periods of 6-8 months. Her advice, herbal remedies and holistic approach have really helped me lessen the joint pain and reduce the severity of the IBS. Mel has also supported me to change my eating habits so that they are better for my digestion and health by giving me practical realistic tips. During a particularly stressful period Mel also supported me in relaxing through the herbs, supplements and her wise counsel. Finally Mel has always made me feel safe and cared for because of her lovely calm, empathic presence and ability to listen and because she practices what she preaches.
