|Subjects:||My name is Catherine King. I am a Medical Herbalist, holding a BSc (Hons) in Herbal Medicine. I own Icaros Herbals, a Herbal Medicine practice and deliver public talks and workshops on the subject of plant based medicine. An important role of a Medical Herbalist is to bring the wisdom and knowledge of herbalism back to its roots; the community. This knowledge, which was often held by woman and passed down through generations, has largely been lost, yet it is central to our folk history. Each culture and society have its own unique relationship to the plants around them, accessing their wisdom and medicine. My talks can be tailored to the interest of the audience; from the history and philosophy of herbal medicine, the use of plant-based medicine to treat specific conditions, the connection of herbs to our spiritual nature, Shamanic tradition and plants of the Amazon or the simple use of every day herbs. I would be happy to discuss what aspect of herbal medicine interests you and deliver a talk.
