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.
Chronic illness a year on.. 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

Sensitive & kind 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… Read more

Neurological Help 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… Read more
Sleeping after 4 very long years! 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

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

No to Statins I am so pleased I was introduced to Andrea Hughes as my Doctor prescribed Statins and I had bad side effects in the liver. Since seeing Andrea and taking the Herbs my cholesterol levels have gone down considerably with no side effects. She also added extra herbs to help relieve Arthritis in my wrist which is no longer a problem. I have just been diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes and again she has helped me. Thanks Andrea.
No to Statins
Shingles 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

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
