Root to Stem with Alex Laird

Today I’m speaking with medical herbalist and author of “Root to Stem” Alex Laird. She runs one of the few NHS medical herbalism clinics at Whipps Cross hospital in London alongside a consultant dermatologist and has over 20 years of experience. Trained in biomedicine and plant pharmacology, Alex is also a visiting lecturer, and has published numerous research papers, and is the co-founder of the charity Living Medicine. She is a firm believer in using food and foraged plants to help support wellbeing. 

'Root to Stem' is a seasonal and holistic approach to health that puts plants, herbs and nature at the heart of how we live and eat.

It is a new kind of guide that links individual health to our communities and the planet's health to sustain us all.’
