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.
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 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 …
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…

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…

I cannot recomme…

A fabulous workshop with handouts of relevant information. Andrea makes the session fun, whilst sharing her love and knowledge of herbalism in an interactive way. Being able to make products to bring home was just superb, I look forward to the next one!
