I run a herbal teaching clinic within a dermatology team at Whipps Cross hospital, have supported breast cancer patients for more than 20 years and run a private general clinic in Fulham. I lecture at herbal medicine colleges and to medical professionals and have published clinical research.
My book Root to Stem (Penguin 2019) is a guide to using plants and food with recipes and remedies in looking after ourselves in each season.
I run Living Medicine (livingmedicine.org), a charity that shares knowledge across all cultures in how both public and patients may use foods and herbs for safe, daily healthcare and in partnership with mainstream healthcare, eg for social prescribing. Integrative medicine is our collaborative future – we can all help our health by reconnecting to each other, our communities and to nature to share skills and wisdom.
