Fiona McIntyre graduated from Edinburgh Napier University in 2010 with an honours degree in Herbal Medicine. She is a member of the National Institute of Medical Herbalists (NIMH).
Her background is in wildlife conservation and environmental management, where she worked in various roles for twenty years. It was through that that she developed an interest in the uses of plants and in particular their medicinal uses. Together with a growing desire to help people this was Fiona’s motivation to study and practice Herbal Medicine.
Although with her background she is particularly interested in the medicinal properties of British native plants, Fiona uses the most appropriate herbs for the patient. These can include herbs from other parts of the world eg.Echinacea from North America, Withania from Asia.
Fiona is also a qualified driving instructor (DSA registered ADI), and has a particularly good track record with nervous learners. Give her a call if you, or someone you know wants to learn to drive.
