This will be a short, snappy post announcing the first of two exciting new opportunities and offerings from the HerbSmith: a weekly clinic at the wonderful Neal's Yard Remedies (NYR) premises in Tunbridge Wells, Kent.
Herbal medicine clinics beginning Monday 9th November
Every Monday from next week, Monday 9th November 2015, I will be available onsite for herbal medicine consultations between 9.30 am and 1.30 pm at the Tunbridge Wells branch of Neal's Yard Remedies. I'll also be available on an ad-hoc basis on Tuesday mornings between 9.30 am and 12.30 pm - in other words, I'll be there if there's a client booked in!
Here's the address:
64 Mount Pleasant Road
Tel: 01892 524 523
You can make an appointment either by contacting NYR using the above details or via the HerbSmith website.
And here's a handy map:
To begin with, I'll be working in the NYR graduate clinic where a 60-minute consultation costs a very reasonable £25, plus any herbs or supplements purchased following the session. A bargain, I hope you'll agree.
I'll be working to build the clinic over the coming weeks and it would be great if you could help me out by sharing this story via Facebook or your preferred form of social media.
Neal's Yard Remedies is unique in the UK
I'm delighted to be involved with NYR as it occupies a unique position in the UK natural medicine landscape. I'm not aware of another brand specialising in products manufactured from the highest quality, organic, natural ingredients and which has premises in towns and cities throughout the UK. Neither can I think of another operation that offers a wide range of natural therapies to the public from many of those premises. As double-whammies go, it's about as natural, effective and ethical as you get - and I'm very excited to be part of it.
If you know anyone in the Tunbridge Wells area who might be interested in a herbal medicine consultation on Monday or Tuesday mornings with your friendly local HerbSmith, at a very reasonable rate, why not let them know? Maybe I'll even see you at NYR Tunbridge Wells at some point in the future - I certainly hope so.
What is herbal medicine? And what about iridology and naturopathy?
Well, herbal medicine is medicine using plants instead of drugs. Simple, eh? Thanks for stopping by and see you next time!
Except it's not that easy. While it may be true to say that herbalists use plants instead of drugs, that rather glib introductory phrase doesn't begin to touch upon the rich and varied threads that weave the tapestry of herbal medicine past, present and future. Neither does it acknowledge that pharmaceutical medicine would not exist without plant-derived chemicals, which represent some of its most important weapons even in 2015. But I'm getting ahead of myself.
