You could say herbalism runs in my blood, my great great grandmother was known as the “Welsh Witch”, the people of the mining town, where she lived in the Welsh valleys, would visit her for help with various ailments.
I come from a science background having completed a Masters in Analytical Chemistry – no, I don’t know why either! Except now I do, it has been one of the steppingstones on my journey to be a naturopath and herbalist. To be able to understand plant chemistry has enabled me to know how the herbs work, combining the traditional teachings of plant medicine with modern research is fascinating to this herb nerd!
Following some stress related illnesses, it was time to make a change and follow a naturopathic path that fills me with passion and share that passion to contribute positively to others' wellbeing.
