Biography

I am a Herbal Medicine BSc (Hons) graduate who writes thoroughly referenced herb monographs.

The monographs contain subsections with specific details from study papers (such as in vitro study papers, animal study papers and/or clinical trial papers). These subsections often contain background information that clarifies and/or brings to light the wider context of the specific details from the respective study papers.

I did my degree in Herbal Medicine BSc (Hons) at the University of Westminster. Modules I did as part of my degree include Human Anatomy and Physiology, Biochemistry and Phytochemistry, Pharmacology, Research Methods in Complementary and Alternative Medicine, Pathophysiology, Systems Pathology, Botanical Medicine, Herbal Medicine Therapeutics and Materia Medica, Botany and Dietetics and Dietary Therapy.
