Western Herbal Medicine Practitioner and RN
My love for plants has evolved from my childhood of running through Ku ring gai National Park in Sydney barefoot, watching the seasons of the year bring the most beautiful plants bursting into flower with a fragrance that matched.
I was always interested in all thing medical as I spent most of my school holidays within pathology labs watching many amazing procedures being done, once school was finish I became a Registered nurse working in many hospitals and in the community, which I continue to this day.
My journey with Herbal Medicine began when my family and I became unwell with chicken pox, glandular fever, and many other illnesses which modern medicine struggled to help with. A dear friend recommended a practitioner who used Herbal Medicine to help people regain their energy for life and wellbeing.
This change my life and from there I have achieved a Bachelor in Health Science, Western Herbal Medicine. So I am able to practice with the skill, compassion and dedication of a registered nurse and the traditions of Western Herbal Medicine.
You may ask what the difference is between Western Herbal Medicine, Traditional Chinese Herbal Medicine and Ayurvedic Medicine. There are differences in the philosophies, the way they are practice and the treatments prescribed but there is also a lot of similarities. The history and the connection of medicine through out the world is one of my fascinations.
I am here to help you use Herbal Medicine, and build your health, confidently
On my site you’ll find in-depth and easy to understand information about herbs, delicious and inspiring recipes, and lots of beautiful photos of plants!
The knowledge I share is a combination of my personal experiences, traditional uses of plants, how modern day herbalists are practicing herbalism, as well as what scientific studies are learning about plants.
Infused into everything I do is my deeply rooted belief that we are all happier when we are connected to the natural world around us. My passion and what I am about is that I heal using plant based medicine, life style changes and dietary changes. The more you rely on plants for your everyday health, the better this world will be.
