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
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!
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
First Aid Kit Workshop, Fiona - Worthing
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!
I’m a 57 year old male, had no history of illness, full on active. At age 54 I developed dry eyes, and what seemed to be systemic inflammation. Tendons and ligaments hurt and I was prone to niggling muscle injuries. I began treatment with Herba Medica. Following various tests, turns out I had some significant imbalance in my gut biome. Andrea started me on a treatment plan. 18 months in I am feeling way better, like things are calming down, injuries are fewer, very little tendon pain. It’s a ste… Read more
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
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
Spring Workshop April 2014
Some comments from some of the participants… That was a wonderful workshop thank you very much indeed. I do love having all these potions to shake and stir. Your enthusiasm and energy are so inspirational and your philosophy on plants and life. Please keep me posted of any further courses; so interesting. And think I’ve found my new herbalist!! Thanks again; it was inspiring and a spring tonic in every way! Hope to see you again soon.
Integral to my Motherhood Journey
I first met Andrea a few years ago during one of her herbal walks at Culberry Nursery. I immediately felt her light, joy and kindness – making herbalism sound so effective and magical, yet accessible. I’ve taken some of her wonderful workshops, and she has been an extremely integral part of my motherhood journey – from the very beginning right through to the present…and my daughter is now almost four years old! She has also been a wonderful, generous and supportive friend. I cannot recomme… Read more
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
