Nicolette, pharmacognosist at the physic garden, says “Visitors to the physic garden regularly ask which plants help treat everyday common ailments are which are safe to take with certain conditions. So we are delighted that Ross, Davina and Milena are here to provide this exciting new professional herbal dispensary service for the North East. Many people do not realise that in order to prescribe medicinal plants you need to be a qualified medical herbalist and study for 4 years with clinical training. Ross and Davina have worked alongside the physic garden for many years now, and we completely endorse their natural approach to health. Having the opportunity to welcome Milena and embrace the European way of recommending herbal medicines the same as recommending orthodox medicines for general ailments is exciting progress for both mainstream and herbal medical practice”
