Julie Padgham Medical Herbalist

Whilst growing up in Sussex, I became interested in plants and collected a number of books on medicinal herbs. Later on, I undertook a one year introductory course on herbal medicine run by The College of Phytotherapy at Bodle Street Green. Whilst studying, I worked at a herbal shop & dispensary in Alfriston alongside a qualified Medical Herbalist. I enjoyed the experience so much that I decided to take my studies further. In my clinic I draw on my medical knowledge & combine this with both the traditional use and current research on medicinal plants.

I respect the body's innate healing ability and believe that by giving ourselves the right 'tools' we can stimulate these natural healing mechanisms. In addition to my clinics in Lewes and Hurstpierpoint, I also work at Hamblys Herbal Dispensary in Wadhurst offering over the counter advice & herbal medicine for acute, simple ailments. In 2011, I qualified as a reflexologist.
