Wild, edible herbs have historically been used as free, local food, nutritional and medicinal sources. They are highly valuable to your clients because they are so nutritious, fresh, in-season, and often organic. They also often grow spontaneously and adapt well to various climates and conditions. These free foods impart many compounds needed in the human diet in regard to macronutrients, micronutrients and phytonutrients. Including these in your patient's diets can greatly expand their food diversity. Some of them have clear medicinal benefits that you can utilise in their care plan.

Edible greens are typically very low in energy density so are suitable for weight management and they exhibit the full range of flavours: bitter, sour, sweet, salty, umami. In this valuable discussion, Andrew has chosen edible greens that are native in most countries, are easily recognisable, and of great value to your patients.


The second course this month is Maximising the Clinical Experience with Taryn Deane who will show you how to create an experience your patients will love and highly recommend. Your customer's experience at your clinic may be the most important component of a successful business and patient compliance. And with compliance comes clinical results.

Taryn Deane provides you with a clear path to a memorable experience for every one of your patients. There are many elements to the customer experience and not everyone appreciates the same things, so there's an art to this. She will give you lots of great ideas that you can incorporate immediately. Some are quite simple yet have huge clinical impacts with their lasting and meaningful effects on people.

This is a clever presentation, and one that will change the way you approach your patients and certainly the way they feel about you. Taryn leaves you with a list of questions that you can use to create a memorable patient experience that's unique to you.


The Ayurvedic approach to using herbs is quite different to the Western approach and a great deal can be learnt by applying these very old and tested principles. Ayurveda does not focus on “biochemical components” and isolating “active chemicals” from plants. This approach is considered to ignore the plant’s capacity to work on the conscious intelligence of our body. 

Ayurveda takes a much more holistic view of a plant's abilities and how to use them to very good effect. Mona will take you through the age-old principles used and refined by Ayurvedic clinicians for centuries and shows you a new way to apply many of the herbs you currently use and resources to some new ones. Join her for this valuable exploration of Ayurvedic herbology.
