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 put small images on the blog for speedy upload but if you double click on the picture it will enlarge and give you more detail.
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… Read more
Hi Andrea, Thank you so much for a fantastic workshop! I really enjoyed it – I’m sure we all did! I’m enjoying those wonderful bottles of syrup magic – I’ve never tasted anything more delicious – tastes of the countryside, sunshine, fresh air, of the pulse of life. You gave us lots of info, and lots to think about. Collected a few rosehips today too, on the Downs.
I’d love to do more workshops – even if the subject isn’t something I’d necessarily do at home, it broadens one’s understa… Read more
Fantastic workshopKriya, Worthing.
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… Read more

I am currently on day 6 of the Diet and it’s working! Unbelievably for me I am sticking to it, especially given my inner rebel and sceptic!
I had a rocky start but then really knuckled down and have 100% stuck to it and the pains in my fingers and toes have almost totally gone!
My body no longer feels like i have permanently been hit by a bus, full of aches and pains. The mornings are most significant in that normally, before the diet I had to lever myself out of bed as if I was a lump of le… Read more

I’ve attended Andrea’s brilliant and insightful workshops for a while now.
Having used herbal medicine myself a while ago to overcome fertility issues I had no hesitation to look to Andrea when my 6 year old kept suffering from recurrent ear infections. She’d had three lots of antibiotics to “cure” these over a six month period and every 8 weeks she would seem to get another ear infection.
We met with Andrea and were prescribed not only herbs but knowledge about the … Read more

Everything seems to make sense and tie in perfectly. You know I have only felt the anxious feelings a couple of days since starting the herbs and that was just before my period a week ago – and really mild
This is the best month I have had for at least 6months – so something must be working!
I am so grateful for all your help. The anxiety/moods really were taking over my life – affecting my relationship with my partner and the kids!

My daughter ( now nearly 5 ) has suffered with very disturbed sleep, ( waking 8-10 times a night, for 4 years ) bumpy skin , tummy aches , highly strung and generally not a happy child since the day she was born – have tried numerous trips to doctors and other health practitioner’s (spending lots of money and getting nowhere) and finally came across Andrea who to us is a heaven sent angel as she diagnosed Millie with intolerances to dairy, soya , egg and goats milk – 6 weeks on with an eliminati… Read more
Sleeping after 4 very long years!SallyGoring
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 … Read more
