Qualified in Western Medical Herbalism (MSc) Middlesex University; Naturopathic Nutrition (PGDip) College of Naturopathic Medicine, more than forty years experience in herbal and holistic medicine.
Daily rush, noise, air pollution, time pressure, pressure at work, fast food, coffee, no weekends and stress – these are just some of the parts of urban living that can ruin our health.
Living in a big city, I have experienced many of the above, when I arrived in London I enjoyed good health, but within a few years I started experiencing a permanent, killing, crippling pain in my spine. The pain accompanied crushing fatigue, all day and night.
Following a series of tests and scans, at young age I was prescribed steroid hormones and told I would need them for the rest of my life. I was also told not to exercise or partake in sports. I did not receive any logical explanation for the symptoms I was experiencing.
Drugs are not my cup of tea, and I enjoy being active, and luckily, when I was a child, I witnessed how my mother cured herself of a terminal illness with herbs, fasting, juice, detoxification, and dieting, so I wasn't unfamiliar with holistic medicine. Moreover, my granny was a village healer, her mother and grandmother were too. She wanted me to become a healer, but I never liked that idea.
So, when I was prescribed steroids for pain management, I understood that it was a call for me to heal myself, then help others. My decision was to return to my roots and study nutritional science based on naturopathic (holistic) medicine. Even though I was sure I would find the underlying cause in my case, I wanted to understand the medical science behind traditional holistic medicine.
When I successfully treated myself, I was inspired to learn more about evidence-based modern science of medicinal plants. My studies were successful enough for me to receive a Master of Science in Western Herbal Medicine from the University of Middlesex, London.
My experience in both holistic and evidence-based medicine spans over forty years, and I really enjoy helping people. It feels as if I've heard "the call" and have returned to my roots. I was an eight-year-old child unconsciously helping my mum to gather herbs and prepare herbal medicine, but I never imagined I would become an herbalist. Over the course of my life, my childhood unconscious experiences became conscious, and eventually they became my profession, closely woven into the holistic traditions of wise women and men.
