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.
No More Rash! About time I left a testimonial for one of the very few people I actually admire and respect.
I had suffered with an awful skin condition (Erythema Multiforme) for a few years before seeing Andrea and the medics could do nothing for me.
It caused me so much stress, which just exacerbated the condition. Anyway, Andrea cleared my problem within a couple of months and that was a few years’ ago. She is truly a special lady with a strong desire to help all those she meets. Could go on – can’t p… Read more

Acid Reflux 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 … Read more
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

Changed our lives.. Dear Andrea
This is a huge success story…..
As you may remember,my Son had experienced stomach pain every night for nearly 10 years.
The hospital prescribed Ranitidine to contain the pain. At first it seemed to help but then didn’t help at all.
We came to you. You recommended to steer clear of gluten at first. Then we decided on a stool sample. This showed yeast and low good bacteria.
His stomach pain eased almost immediately with your treatment, but every 5 days or so a painful… Read more
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

Relief From Migraines & Allergies 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 … Read more
Macular Degeneration I had my annual eye test yesterday and it’s good news.
The macular degeneration is no worse and even slightly better!!
Well done with your special herbs.

Hashimoto'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… Read more
