The healing properties of everyday herbs and plants are to be explained in County Durham soon. (February 18)
Medical herbalist Mary Tassell will be at Durham County Councilís Clayport Library on Sunday, February 18 to give an illustrated talk on western herbal medicine.
As well as looking at scientific and traditional herbs for holistic medicine, she will explain what herbal medicine is and how it differs from orthodox medicine.
Mary, who graduated from the College of Phytotherapy as a herbalist in 2000, will look at the history of herbal medicine in England, what happens at a consultation and at the contents of an average kitchen cupboard.
Mary spent 10 years as a biomedical scientist and has practised as a consultant herbalist in Befordshire and Luton before moving recently to County Durham.
She edited the Herbal Times, the newsletter of the National Institute of Medical Herbalists, has been an Institute council member, and is currently the student liaison officer.
Tickets for her talk, which starts at 2.00pm, are £2.00 and should be booked in advance from Clayport Library on 0191 386 4003.
