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.

Better Digestion and no Omeprazole! Hi Andrea
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.

Staying off Anti-Depressants I will always be grateful for having met Andrea. I was introduced to her some years ago for help in coming off antidepressants which I had been taking on and off for years.
I had failed a number of times trying to come off them the conventional way and was ready to try a different approach.
I am so glad that I did!
With Andrea’s lovely herbs, teas and recommendations I have been anti-depressant free for over five years and feel more confident and happy.

Sjögren’s Syndrome I’ve lost count of the different specialists who have tried to help me alleviate the varied symptoms of Sjögren’s Syndrome – and the accompanying pain and discomfort.
Relief from it all came only if one accepted unwelcome side effects from prescription pain killers, whose effectiveness diminished over time. Seeing Andrea has enabled me to change all that. Her methodical approach, drawing on a mix of hard science and ancient lore, has been holistic in the sense that she treated me, not my illn… Read more
Stress Levels 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!
The Herbalist who saved Christmas 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.

Help with ME/CFS Went to see Andrea for a consultation again yesterday. I suffer from ME, and since she has helped me in the past to feel improvement, after going through a rough patch with it recently I turned to her for some help.
She gave me a lot of helpful advice and also set me up with some herbal medicine and different vitamin supplements, specifically for my needs and to help support my health.
Well, last night I took two of the Withania capsules before bed as she suggested and used some relaxation and… Read more

Everything seems to make sense and tie in perfectly 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!

Splitting skin on my fingers 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… Read more
