HERBAL MEDICINE

I offer herbal medicine consultations. This involves taking a very thorough case history of your current complaint , past medical history, and whats happening in the whole of your body, including your diet and lifestyle.  Together we work out a treatment plan, any appropriate changes and work together to get you to exactly where you want to be with the help of herbs, diet, and support.  Herbal treatment generally lasts from between 3 months – 6 months depending how longstanding your condition is.  You will be prescribed a monthly tincture, and any teas or external preparations that are needed to treat your ailments.

Private: About Me

I have a BSc (hons) in Herbal Medicine and qualified 9 years ago. I have been practicing since, first in Abbotts of Leigh herbal medicine clinic for several years, and then I was part of an anti fracking herbal clinic on the anti fracking front line where we offered free herbal medicine to those against fracking.

I am involved with the Radical Herbalism collective where we organise annual gatherings of workshops and talks to create dialogue around how our health is connected to the oppression’s we face in a capitalist society.

I am passionate about land justice and finding just ways to re-connect to the land in all aspects.

I love making my medicines with the plants I harvest wild.
