Body Talk -29th April

My guest this evening was Jacqui Fordham, The Urban Herbalist.

We've talked quite a lot about the healing power of herbs on the show and it was great to have Jacqui along to answer a few more questions about these powerful plants.

Jacqui explained that it isn't always right to just pick pot of herbs off the shelf of your local store, there may be underlying conditions to take into account. We often try to treat the symptom and not get to the cause. That's where Jacqui comes in. Herbalists are equally as well qualified as doctors and are able to diagnose and treat most conditions. Unlike modern drugs, herbs are completely safe to take and will enhance your system rather than giving you unwanted side effects.

We don't need to go out and buy them all either. Lots of these wonderful cures are right at our feet, literally. Weeds that grow in the garden can have all different kinds of uses. So don't consign everything to the compost heap, that weed could be just what you need to give you a lift.

Jacqui works at The Willow Herbal Centre in Harold Wood, where she is planning to run workshops on how we can recognise and use the herbs we have around us.
