Luz Clinic Opening!
I invite you to come along and celebrate the opening of my new clinic space in Praia da Luz with me. I have been renovating the building (above), which will be a perfect spot for consultations and workshops with its calming sea view and ample space for growing herbs.
There will be champagne, herbal treats and a small discount on consultations booked on the day for new patients.
If you have any questions about herbal treatment, this would be a good time to come and ask me! Look out for the Facebook event page to RSVP.

Wonderful Weeds workshop: an Introduction to Herbal Medicine
(afternoon – time to be confirmed)
“What is a weed? A plant whose virtues have not yet been discovered”
Ralph Waldo Emerson, American essayist and poet.
This will be the first of many introductory workshops I plan on holding in this new space.
In this first session, we will explore common weeds and how wonderfully useful they can be. We will cover some basic concepts of natural medicine, learn about three herbs in detail (tasting, discussion, recipes etc) and make some simple remedies that you can take home with you.
Learning about herbs is intuitive, creative and rewarding, and I hope to transmit some of my enthusiasm for nature’s chemical treasure trove through a series of workshops throughout 2017, concentrating on plants native to the south of Portugal.

Forest Herb Walk, Budens
The sun is out and the Cistus is beckoning! Join the first of my spring herb walks in the forest behind Budens to learn all about some of the wonderful herbs we have growing all around us in the Algarve.
We’ll talk about the historical and modern medicinal uses of the plants we find as well as simple recipes you can make at home, and you’ll get a free e-book to take away with you so you don’t have to take notes on the day. Payment in advance by bank transfer if possible. Directions will follow and pick-ups from Intermarche can be arranged.
