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.

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 …

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…

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 …
I felt very uplifted after our appointment, and have remained so today. I am also hopeful that I may still be able to avoid surgery after all, thanks to your expert ministration of the beautiful healing herbs. I really appreciate all your support and caring attention. You are a true Light-Worker.
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…
Fantastic workshopKriya, Worthing.
Just 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…
Better Digestion and no Omeprazole!
Dear Andrea, Many thanks for your talk and demo at Culberry’s yesterday 22.6.13. Sadly we had to leave before the end it was a very interesting and informative event, on a subject which is not only enjoyable but so important to our wellbeing on so many levels. I would be grateful if you would send details of your courses and practice. Best regards and thanks
Talk and Demo Mr Paterson Shoreham by Sea
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..
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 Andrea

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…
