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.
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…
Chronic illness a year on..
A friend with a diagnosis of MS recommended Andrea to me.I too had been experiencing neurological symptoms (pins and needles in my hands and feet; difficulty walking) and after such a glowing review, decided that I would book an appointment. I am so glad that I did!
One of the first things you notice when you meet Andrea is how calm and welcoming she is, so unlike any healthcare experience I’ve had.Because I felt at ease, I was able to talk about my experience in a safe space. Andr…
Location: West SussexI’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 …

I went to Andrea to help with relief of migraines and allergies. Migraines have blighted my life since I was a child but the allergies are relatively new occurrence in the past few years. I have never found anything that help the migraines which had become increasingly regular, sometimes as often as once a week, and although I was on daily high dosage anti histamine I was still getting violent reactions to all manner of things. Eleven weeks later no migraines. One allergic reaction which thanks …
Location: West Sussex. I suffered eighteen agonising months of the skin on my fingers splitting for no apparent reason….. suddenly a stinging pain and I could watch my skin split open and bleed..not only on my finger tips but anywhere on my fingers. I made several visits to my GP who prescribed a variety of ointments and creams, I changed shampoo, soap, washing machine powder/liquid all to no avail. I had an appointment with a Dermatologist who arranged allergy tests and that also was a waste of…

Hi AndreaJust wanted to let you know how much better I’m feeling!The last few days I’ve felt actual hunger, something I haven’t felt for months.Your wonderful herbs and particularly I feel, the Agrimony, are doing wonders.
I’m off the omeprazole now ( for almost a week) and no repercussions.
I’m sticking to wheat and dairy free with the exception of a little goat cheese, no bright stools at all.This lovely lady presented with a history of medication of proton pump inhibitors, s…

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 just wanted you to know that I am doing much better and my stress levels have been greatly reduced.I wanted to thank you for your help and support at a very difficult time for me it was extremely beneficial. I will of course contact you again should I need to and will continue to recommend you to others!
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.
