Event Details

ANP Practitioner Training Day

Edinburgh: Monday 2nd October  6.30pm-8.30pm

The increase for nutritional solutions is growing. Increasing demand for animal friendly, ethical products is opening a demand for supplementing with herbs rather than medicines or laboratory tested supplements. Herbs are by their very nature animal friendly, vegetarian, vegan and natural making them an excellent addition to a nutritionist’s toolset. But how do we apply this in a clinical setting?

Herbal medicine can be a vital tool to the Naturopath. Often we recommend a herbal remedy to bring about a targeted change in a client’s profile, to generate anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, anti-depressive, diarrheic or laxative effect; name a disorder or a dysfunction and you’ll find a find a host of herbs to stimulate the desired response. But in this very approach sits the root of pharmacy, so the question is, can herbalism represent something more than aesthetically pleasing drugs?

Edward Joy takes a holistic approach to herbalism which he shares in his lectures and applies in practice through his technical role for Bionutri, a naturopathic supplements manufacture. "A well extracted herb can be a pretty powerful remedy, but this approach alone misses the point of why herbs have pharmacological activity, there is more to a herb than its singular, perceived active ingredient. Every herb is a myriad of active compounds, each there to assists the plant in its own journey through the world, understanding the plant, its constituents and its native environment is to begin to understand how a herb might relate to the client.

In this lecture, Edward looks at some of the most commonplace food botanicals, gets into their foundations and their constituents and how those botanical building blocks can affect our lives for the better. "It is one thing to use a herb for systematic relief” Edward says, "but to find a herb that can become a part of the diet and help change the state of health in a client takes herbalism to another level."
