I believe in and enjoy education, and believe your practitioner should be up to date with modern developments in natural medicines.
I became involved in natural medicine after witnessing its remarkable work in a friend of mine, and then its effect on my own health.
I lived in Tasmania at that time, but came to South Australia to study at the new SA College of Botanic Medicine and Natural Therapies.
Well that was an education - at a new college with its teething problems but also with the most interesting and experienced teachers one could wish for.
Marnie Morrow and Kerry Bone inspired me about Herbal medicine and I remain inspired by the gift and potential of medical herbalism.
I was also fortunate to be taught by (the late) great homeopath Robert Beheit and Iridology by Errol Harding.
Once in practice as a Naturopath I sought to widen my knowledge and experience by doing a Post Graduate Diploma in Health Counselling and then a Masters in Public Health.
While I was keen to be involved in research, even 12 years ago there were many obstacles and although I didnt get to conduct my own clinical trials, I felt well equipped to be able to evaluate the emerging body of research in the field of natural medicines.
At last I was getting to blend science with tradition! And over the last decade even more so as that body of evidence gets bigger & bigger. Not to be ignored though, is the very fine and huge volume of what we call "Traditional evidence" - that is, the body of empirical knowledge accumulated over many thousands of years of the practice of herbal and natural medicines.
