Dr. Sally Moorcroft
Dr. Sally Moorcroft has spent the last 15 years developing the Orchard Barn approach which provides a completely holistic approach to healthcare, using conventional diagnosis and medical knowledge, functional medicine and lab testing: lifestyle, emotional health and diet assessment; and the wisdom from traditional healing traditions such as Herbal Medicine, Homeopathy, Ayurveda and Traditional Chinese Medicine.
This approach enables us to find the root cause of your ill health and fully support you on your journey back to vitality and your full potential.
We offer 3 programmes of care with Dr Moorcroft: Vitality, Nourish and Replenish depending on your health needs. These will be assessed by either completing a short questionnaire form online or over the phone with one of our receptionist team who will talk you through this simple process and confirm which care programme is most suitable for you.
Prices start at £160 for an initial 90-minute consultation and treatment plan.
The consultation fee does not include testing, recommended supplements or herbal/ homeopathic medications and prices for these will vary.
Dr Sally Moorcroft is a member of the GMC and a registered provider with WPA and is also covered by many other health insurance providers.

Using her unique integrative medical approach, Dr Sally specialises in treating women’s health issues, including hormone imbalance; perimenopause; menopause; PCOS; heavy and painful periods; fertility issues; lack of periods; PMT; endometriosis; thyroid disease and other hormone-related health problems.
Looking to uncover the root cause of your hormonal imbalance and health problems, she uses a combination of functional medicine testing; diet and lifestyle changes, nutritional supplements, herbal and homeopathic medicines and bio-identical hormones to address these issues. Dr Sally has trained in Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy at the Marion Gluck Clinic, London. For more information on BHRT please see http://www.mariongluckclinic.com
Follow up appointments are made at regular intervals to assess treatment and for BHRT treatment regular blood tests are needed in order for the prescription to be monitored carefully. Blood tests prices vary from £80 – £300 depending on which ones are needed, confirmation of the price will be confirmed after your initial consultation. You will be required to have a review at least every six months while undergoing BHRT treatment. If you are taking certain bio-identical hormones a 6 monthly or annual pelvic ultrasound will be required, we can provide details about where this can be carried out.

Dr Sally Moorcroft is trained in using herbal, homeopathic (including Oral Iscador) and nutritional protocols in cancer support and alongside conventional cancer treatment.
Iscador is a Mistletoe-based complementary treatment for cancer that has been used for over 90 years. It is extensively used in Europe in cancer care. The aims of treatment are:
- To increase the efficacy of conventional tumour therapies
- To reduce the side effects of chemo and radiotherapy
- To stimulate defence mechanisms against cancer cells
- To inhibit the growth of malignant cells
- To improve the patients’ general well-being and quality of life
Iscador does not claim to be a curative treatment in its own right and is not intended to be an alternative to conventional medicine. It can be given alongside other cancer treatments such as surgery, chemotherapy or radiotherapy. It is very safe and generally does not cause side effects. It is given either orally as drops or by injection under the skin.
Integrative medicine can be particularly useful for improving energy, appetite, reducing chemo and radiotherapy side effects, improving mood and anxiety, poor sleep and lowered immunity. It is often very beneficial to use alongside treatment to boost well being and reduce side effects; and afterwards to speed recovery, reduce the recurrence of cancer, and for quality of life in palliative cases.
