Stephanie Caley obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Health Sciences: Herbal Medicine from the University of Westminster. The course is accredited by the National Institute of Medical Herbalists (NIMH), which is the UK's leading professional body representing herbal practitioners Stephanie Caley is a registered and insured member of NIMH.
Herbalists undertaking such a course are trained to understand the causes and developments of disease, and which herbs and pharamaceutical drugs could possibly interact. This makes herbs prescribed under consultation the safest way to use natural medicine alongside conventional drugs.
Stephanie Caley has had a lifelong interest in health, and natural medicine. She has worked for many years with herbs and herbal medicine, even before becoming a practitioner; and has worked with both the longest established and fastest growing herb suppliers in London.
Before being well & truly on her herbal path, although the love of herbs and nature's medicines was already there, Stephanie was intending to study pharmacy, and had been working alongside a pharmacist. When Stephanie's personal respiratory health issue worsened, and she discussed the potential side effects of her medication with her pharmacist colleague, she decided there was nothing to lose in going to see a herbalist. To this day, Stephanie has never needed to look back; and then also sought help with hayfever. On seeing the results, and personally experiencing the benefits of herbal medicine on her own health, she followed the path of studying Health Sciences: Herbal Medicine.
Stephanie now uses herbs on her own children, bringing her lots of experience on gentle work with the little ones. She's done much work with fertility; particularly male, and due to her own experiences, very much relates to allergy relief and lung strength.
Stephanie dispenses her own herbal remedies, to be sure of the quality of the products she passes on to those who visit for a consultation, and sources organic wherever possible.
She also continues to further develop her knowledge of herbs and health through seminars presenting the latest research, to aid continuing professional development, and can sometimes be found giving talks on herbal medicine to bring about awareness of the benefits of its use.
As well as clinical practice, Stephanie has appeared in magazines and on live TV to discuss the benefits of herbs and in 2017 co-authored book: 500 Treatments for 100 Ailments.
