Many great Plant Medicines quietly grow amongst the hustle and bustle of daily human life without being acknowledged or even observed.
There are many blog posts about Hedgerow medicine, but it struck me today as I walked in the sunshine on my way to collect my little boy from School, how many Herbal Medicines I walk past every day and thus am inspired to blog about ROADSIDE Medicine..
I may hasten to add that I would not dream of harvesting any plants from the Roadside due to contamination from Vehicle fumes, Dog Pee and goodness knows what else! But instead to honor and greet these noble medicines and share their gifts as healers to help change the perception from weed to herb…
Enjoy and keep a look out along your grass verges and roadsides… These are just a few but there are more…

I have never written a testimonial as I am not one for sharing on computers but today I realised there must be many mums, wives,people going through the same pre christmas franticness that I am.After many years of working together wonderful Andrea has helped me get better by being not just a herbalist but an amazing teacher of life. Breathe through christmas and bathe in epsom salts thank you Andrea for reminding me life is so simple if you let it be.

When the first signs of perimenopause arrived I knew that I should do something to help myself.
My Mum had a really rough time with her transition to menopause and ended up taking HRT which has never been on my list of acceptable treatments for many reasons.My first port of call was always going to be Andrea, who is the gentlest, kindest and most generous of medical practitioners that I have ever come across.Within two weeks of starting to take my herbal medicine my symptoms were r…
“After suffering several outbreaks of very painful skin eruptions over a period of about 18 months which doctors could not explain but prescribed antibiotics for, I went to see Andrea.
She recognised the skin problem as shingles and prescribed herbs which stopped further outbreaks. It has been almost 2 years now without any further occurrence.
Andrea also helped diagnose a severe vitamin deficiency which has now been remedied.
I am so lucky to know such a special, caring healer. Thank you…
You have been so extraordinarily good with me, giving me absolutely top-notch, end-to-end, science-based advice. You have also been gently supportive and encouraging in the most warmly humanistic way imaginable. I just can’t thank you enough. The comparison with where I am today and where I was just a year ago is truly breath-taking. Thank you!Although I shall be in touch with occasional emails, I don’t plan on making a further appointment for the foreseeable future, but it is enormously rea…

I don’t know whether you remember me, but I came to you about 18 months ago because I had had recurrent miscarriages. After a course of treatment you gave me, I conceived at the beginning of the year, and have just had a beautiful little boy. I am so grateful to you for all your help, and especially for linking together a lot of my medical issues. My irritable bowel has also been much better since your treatment.Thanks again for all you did, I will definatly recommend you to friends and fa…

I was diagnosed with a hiatus hernia, and on another endoscopy , they found a pool of bile in the stomach. Both endoscopes were due to symptoms of pain, discomfort and reflux . I was given Omeprazole 20-40 mgs over several years. Reading on the Internet the problems encountered from long term proton pump inhibitors, I was delighted when I started Herbal Treatment with Andrea which included balancing my whole digestion.
The reflux has now resolved and I am symptom free and off the Omeprazole. I …
I came to you for the tea making course, I’d just like to say Thank you so much – I learnt so much from those couple of hours with you, it was actually a very profound experience.

I want to shout from the roof tops – I am SO MUCH BETTER
I have worked with Andrea for a few years on fibroids, adrenal weakness and for the past 3 years on an autoimmune thyroid condition, from which point I embarked on both a huge change to my diet as well as taking herbs and supplements.
I was VERY debilitated, unable to work at all, pacing myself through the day with a lot of rest alongside feeling utterly dreadful for days on end.
I have made slow progress and improvements as well as s…
I first met Andrea a few years ago during one of her herbal walks at Culberry Nursery. I immediately felt her light, joy and kindness – making herbalism sound so effective and magical, yet accessible.I’ve taken some of her wonderful workshops, and she has been an extremely integral part of my motherhood journey – from the very beginning right through to the present…and my daughter is now almost four years old!She has also been a wonderful, generous and supportive friend. I cannot recomme…
