Featured Speakers:

Dr. Malcolm Kendrick is a GP living in Macclesfield and graduated from Aberdeen medical school. He is an author, speaker and sceptic. Two of his books are The Great Cholesterol Con (2008) and Doctoring Data (2015).

His talk with us will be on the alternative to the cholesterol hypothesis which is the “thrombogenic hypothesis” first proposed in 1952 by Karl Rokotansky, which has been supported by a number of researchers over the years but never gained sufficient traction to make it to the mainstream.

The hypothesis is very straightforward. It is that blood clots/thrombi are responsible for the initiation and growth of atherosclerotic plaques which is responsible for a full blown heart attack or stroke.

Whilst the current thinking accepts the thrombi are responsible for the final event and plaque growth, it is still not accepted that the thrombus format wall is the initiating event. It is LDL/cholesterol that is responsible for plaque initiation and growth.

Dr Kendrick in his talk will outline why, and how, it is most likely that thrombi that are responsible for the entire chain of events, from initiation to the final event and will present evidence in support of this hypothesis along with an outline of the entire process itself.

Herbalists Marina and Ross have been growing medicinal plants, harvesting, drying and making herbal medicine preparations for over 15 years. They spent the last 10 years teaching both the public, students, and fellow herbal practitioners from their farm.

They founded Irish Herb Dispensary as the first herbal tincturing company in Ireland, where they grew and processed over 80 different species of medicinal the plants from their herb farm into tinctures, vinegars, oils and glycerites. Irish Herb Dispensary supplied herbalists across Ireland with Irish grown herbs.

Together Ross and Marina run a specialist medicinal herb nursery at their home Ivywood, where they grow over 200 species of medicinal plants from around the world. The nursery operates as a source garden so that everyone can have access to hard-to-find medicinal herbs.

Ivywood is set on 40 acres of magical woodland in Co. Clare, Ireland. Marina and Ross relocated their young family and plants to this dream piece of land in 2018. They knew Ivywood was the perfect place to create a healing space for their clinical practice, their teaching and their herb nursery.

Ross and Marina’s expertise as herbalists and herb farmers has been called upon in herbal medicine product development with companies in Ireland and abroad. Alongside their own work as practitioners, they continue to offer consultation services to farmers, wild crafting collectors and natural product developers.

As part of their work many rare and endangered woodland medicinals have been settled into the Ivywood woodland. In time, Ross and Marina hope to make more of these plants available to the public. They have many more plans for Ivywood with the wish to welcome others there to experience the magic of the space and to share their knowledge of herbal medicine.
